Today’s music: Is Best Day of My Life by American Authors. This was selected to get us ready for the 5K on Saturday morning. I bet you wish you had a shirt like the one I am wearing…..well, one like this can be yours once you register for the 5K.
Every year the senior class votes on a faculty or staff member to dedicate the year book to. This morning Mr. Needham encouraged an all-school applause to congratulate Ms. Lesser and Mrs. McGrath who were chosen for the dedication!! Kind, caring, helpful, sweet, patient, and a positive presence. These are all terms that are mentioned when students speak of these teachers. They are dedicated to not only the content they teach but in their support of our students as a whole. For their work both inside and outside of the classroom this year’s book is dedicated to Mrs. McGrath and Ms. Lesser. Congratulations to both of you- it is very much deserved!"
Middle School Field Trip
Yesterday, the 5th, 6th, and 7th graders went on a hike and out to lunch as a reward for a great school year. The students were amazing hikers, leaving some of the teachers in the dust. Then the students then went to Five Guys for some burgers and fries and were well behaved and courteous. The students were so great, that the teachers bought them ice cream and donuts, which they ate while looking at their new yearbooks.
Today, Carly Campanella will serve as a Shadow Guide for Philip Fizur in the 7th grade. Also, Luke Erwin will serve as a Shadow Guide for Sam Van Dyne in the 9th grade. When you see them, please welcome PHILIP AND SAM to Hill Top Prep!
Celebrating Hill Top Seniors
Hey Seniors! You might have noticed some congratulatory signs out in front of the mansion on your way in this morning. These Senior signs are a gift to you from the Parents Association to celebrate your incredible accomplishments and upcoming graduation. These signs are yours to take at your leisure so you can plant them in your yard or in a window at home. Thanks Parents Association for the thoughtful gesture!
