This is a Parent Support Workshop run by Mr. and Mrs. Daniel to give parents tools for help with homework, behavior,etc., also some assistance with High School issues.
It is my privilege and honor to inform you that Hilsman swept all before them at the Northeast Georgia Mathcounts competition last Friday. As a teacher at Hilsman I felt very proud of our students who performed with wonderful professionalism at the contest. Not only did we finish first in the team competition, Cathy Deng also managed to perform well enough to win the top place for individual excellence. To top it all, three out of the four members of the second team won places to compete in the state finals. So now Hilsman has more than half of the students who will compete in the State finals. If you see these students in the hall please congratulate them – they represented our school with class.

Panic at Hilsman
Sonny Ortiz, Justus Ortiz’s father, is coming in to share with 7th grade social studies classes on Friday, Feb. 29th. Mr. Ortiz is the percussionist for Widespread Panic. He will be bringing in a number of percussion instruments, especially drums, from various African and Asian cultures. This will serve as the culminating activity for a study of African and Asian cultures and a great way to end our celebration of Black History Month.
In case you haven't noticed, Hilsman is getting new signs at the entrance. If conditions allow there is also a landscaping plan to go with them. The signs are being funded via SPLOST.
