Looking Forward and Back


I hope everyone has had a great week! I absolutely love the weather! Now if it could just stay like this for another five months and then warm up...

Below I will discuss several different subjects.

The 7th and 8th grade marching bands have recently marched in the Homecoming Parade, Oktoberfest Parade and tonight they will perform at 1/2 time of the high school football game with the high school band! Please come out and support the band and their instructors, Mr. Dan Davies and Mr. Pat Flaherty.

Personal Learning Plans
Thanks to everyone that was able to join our teachers last week for Personal Learning Plan meetings. If you have not had your meeting yet, please contact your child's adviser so you can have the meeting.

Please also remember that your child's PLP can be accessed at home on the web. Your child has the information needed to log into their account on Career Cruising. To go to the Career Cruising website, click here. If your child can't find their personal information, contact me.

Thank You Hills Bank
