A Message from the Principal:
Greetings from Hilltop!
As the second semester of the school year begins, we are all aware that much more learning must be achieved before the end of the year. Please assure your student arrives to school on time each day and continue having them read and complete homework each night. Take the time to discuss their homework with them and what they are reading to help increase their comprehension and learning. In addition, research states that a student’s academic performance can be negatively impacted by lack of sleep (less than 10 hours) and lack of energy. Your child needs plenty of rest followed by a healthy breakfast (including some protein) each morning to help strengthen the brain for learning.
Help remind your student to follow our Hilltop R.O.C.K.S. Expectations! Know the staff at Hilltop is working hard to ensure that all Hilltop students have access to high quality instruction on a daily basis in every classroom. In order for us to accomplish this, please help your student to understand and comply with our behavior expectations. As I have shared in previous messages, we have a system with a focus on students being collaborative, professional, and respectful in all areas of our building and beyond.
We are honored to work with your student every day, and we take pride in their accomplishments. We encourage you to praise your student for being on time, using appropriate language, and complying with adult direction. We will be doing the same here at Hilltop second semester! Together our efforts will help your student shine!
Mark Westley, Principal
