The board meeting scheduled for tonight, November 24 has been cancelled.
We are looking forward to continuing our Thanksgiving tradition and having a Thanksgiving feast in our classrooms Wednesday. Your child has been assigned an item to bring for their feast. Please be sure to send them in on Wednesday morning! If you know that your child will not be at school Wednesday, please let your child's teacher know asap so they can re-assign items if needed!
Parents, we are getting some confusion about casual day and when students can wear it. Please remember casual day is only the last Friday of the month. We always put a reminder on the sign and send a text the night before. The dates are also available on our website. If your child earns a Patriot Prize they can wear casual clothes the following Monday. A sticker will always be sent home on Friday letting you know they can wear casual clothes on Monday. On non casual Fridays students can wear HPS spirit wear. You are always welcome to call and check with the office if you are unsure about casual day.
Hillsdale Prep has partnered with Charleston Wrap to host a fully virtual fundraiser. The fundraiser will start November 17 and end December 1. On Tuesday, November 17 we will send a flyer home with each family explaining how to register your child and participate. We will also be posting the flyer on our Facebook and website. We are really excited for this COVID safe way to earn money for HPS. Keep an eye out for that flyer next week!
Last night HPS hosted their first trunk or treat featuring trunks created by each classroom. The winning class will all receive a copy of the book the trunk is based on. Click on the individual picture and click like to vote. Voting will last through the weekend. Votes will be counted and a winner announced on Monday morning. Feel free to share with friends and family to help your child's class win the competition!! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=3421357677945582&id=805978959483480

We would like to wish Mrs. Dickinson and Mr. Fowler a very happy birthday today! If you see them, be sure to wish them a very happy birthday!!
Mr. Fowler’s class did a parking spot drawing composition and the class picked three. With that being said Tomorrow Mr. Fowler’s class will be painting his parking spot. I picked casual day to do this, so that my class would wear clothes that they can get paint on if it should happen they do. Thanks and it should be fun!
Tomorrow is casual Friday and spirit wear orders due.
Next Wednesday, September 30 the Health Department will be here doing hearing and vision screening. They will be following all COVID procedures and sanitizing equipment in between each student.
