Holiday Traditions Concerts - December 19
All of Hilltop's students in Kindergarten through 4th grade have been working on a variety of holiday and winter songs since November. Students will share their songs in the “Holiday Traditions” concerts on Wednesday, 12/19/18. Concerts are held in Hilltop’s gym.
Please have students dress neatly (no logos on shirts, no hats, no sweatpants/exercise pants). Also, heavy sweaters/tops can be too warm to wear when performing.
Performance times are:
Grades 1 & 2 - 9:00 a.m.
Grades 3 & 4 - 10:15 a.m.
Kindergarten - 2:30 p.m.
Let's go out for recess!
Please be sure your child has dressed appropriately - jackets, hats, gloves. Whatever they wear to school, teachers will have them wear outside for recess.
All Hilltop and Mountain View students attended a school bus safety activity recently. Students were reminded of bus stop safety, as well as conduct, courtesy, and safety information while riding the bus. All the students took part in an evacuation drill from the bus as well.
