GREAT work to our 6th, 7th, 8th and 11th grade MCA Math test takers this week! Next week we will be testing MCA Science for 8th and 10th grade. Good luck students and please remember to bring your ‘old’ headphones with the auxiliary jack. You cannot use any bluetooth headphones during the MCAs. The headphones will proved text-to-speech for all questions and answers.
We also celebrated Earth Day with a Hills Town Clean-Up. This is a great way to teach our students how to be stewards of our community. Here are some pictures of Earth Day Clean-Up in Hills.
Students and Staff participated in an Earth Day Clean-Up around the city of Hills on Friday.
This senior class is going to be missed, but we know the world will be a better place once they leave our doors. For the next 6 weeks, I will be highlighting each student from our 2021 Senior Class. Good Luck Seniors! My how they’ve grown!
