Toys for Tots

We will be holding our annual Toys for Tots Program again this year with a slight change. All toys brought in will be given ONLY to Hilsman families.. We are looking for toys to be used by kids from 3-16yrs. of age. Also, Dr. Price will provide a pizza party for the homeroom that brings in the most toys. Toys can be placed in the box at the front office. We will begin our drive on Tue Dec. 2 and it will go until Dec. 19th. Thank you for your support with this cause.

Mrs. Settle

Dear Parents,
I wanted to take this time to inform you that Mrs. Gwen Settle, one of our 7th grade science teachers, will be out on medical leave until after the New Year. She has left all necessary lesson plans for the substitute teacher who will be in the classroom until she returns.

Please be assured that the students will be receiving the Georgia Performance Curriculum as mandated and our current Instructional Lead Teacher, Mrs. Kim Reynolds-Manglitz who is the former Science Specialist for the Clarke County School District will monitor the classes closely.

In closing, we wish Mrs. Settle a speedy recovery and look forward to her return to Hilsman. As always, thank you for your tremendous support.

Tony Price, Ed.D
