Seat Time Recovery
Regular school attendance is important to the academic success of every student. On a block schedule, students are allowed to miss 5 days for each semester class and 3 days for each quarter class. Absences above this limit violate the SC Compulsory Attendance Law and put the student in danger of losing credit. Click on the link for complete Seat Time Recovery information.

Student of the Month
The student of the April Month nominees (to be celebrated in May) are Jai'lyn Logue, Andrew Hall, Mackenzie Mailander, Christopher Freeland, Zay Oxner, Analia Parana, Abby Sweet, Ameshia Coleman, and Michelle Elridge.
The Hillcrest High School Student of the Month for April is Abby Sweet.
Abby Sweet is an extremely motivated and driven student. She excels academically in all of her classes, helps other students, and is very tolerant of others in class. She is incredibly mature as demonstrated by her calm, focused demeanor. She volunteers at Roper Mt. Science Center on Saturdays and is regarded by those instructors as a huge asset to their volunteer team as she works with younger students to conduct educational workshops. She has taken or is registered next year for almost every science course we offer. She is always looking for more volunteer or educational opportunities to strengthen her own knowledge base and to quench her curiosity and desire for understanding of science. I cannot say enough about her integrity and character as she completes every assignment with the utmost detail.
Teacher of the Month
The Hillcrest High School Teacher of the Month for April is Mr. Thomas Freeland.
Thom Freeland is our April Teacher of the Month. He is fully dedicated to his profession and consistently goes above and beyond the expectations of a teacher. He not only teaches band classes, but also spends many long hours preparing shows for competitions and Friday night football games. He has the ability to be strict and has high expectations for his students but is also relaxed and flexible enough to make the program fun and to help students enjoy improving their talents. This year Mr. Freeland has worked especially hard preparing his students and having a jazz band concert and a symphonic band concert each nine weeks. A team player, Mr. Freeland helps administrators and other teachers by setting up the Auditorium lights and sound system for special events. He also willingly lends a helping hand when substitutes are unavailable for fine arts classes. Mr. Thom Freeland is a caring, giving, dedicated and helpful teacher, and we are proud to name him the April Teacher of the Month.
The Hillcrest High School Business Partner of the Month for April is The Coach House.
