MLK "I Have a Dream" winners from Hilsman

Two seventh graders at HMS took the prize in the annual MLK writing competition - Lizzy Reece and David Virgo. They were filmed reading their pieces and will be honored later this week at the MLK breakfast at UGA

Academic Bowl

I hope you will be as proud as I am of our Hilsman Academic Team as they took first place at the Page Regional Academic Competition last Saturday. They will now compete at the State Semifinal on January 24th. This is really a great accomplishment for our team as 80% of our team members are participating in this type of competition for the first time.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your help and support to make the Academic Bowl at Hilsman a great success. The competition went very smoothly and without any glitches. All the participents, parents, coaches and others present seemed to enjoy the event very much.
