6th Grade Newsletter
We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Winter break is right around the corner and before we know it, June will be here. We have enjoyed getting to know your children this year. This group of 6th graders has done very well adjusting to life as middle schoolers and they are truly a sweet group of kids. Mrs. Cortese has met with students who did not pass 1 or more academic subjects 1st quarter. Letters were sent home and should have been returned with a parent signature. If you have not seen this letter, please ask your child for it, and if you have seen it and have not returned it, please sign and return it to school.

A Note from your Principal
During this season of Thanksgiving, I am reminded, once again, of what a blessing it is to be a part of the Hillcrest Middle School family. The outpouring of support for our students, our school, and our community is simply unbelievable.
As the year progresses, I continue to be more and more impressed with our Hillcrest Middle School family. Please allow me to thank each and every family for helping us to have a successful first quarter (and a half) to this school year. Our students are seeing great success in the classroom, and they are working diligently to make a positive difference outside of the classroom. Our teachers are working collaboratively to create rigorous, yet engaging learning experiences for our students.
Thank you to our student families, bus drivers, school nurse, SRO, custodians, cafeteria workers, counselors, media specialists, teachers, aides, office workers, PTA, SIC, and administrative team for all working together as an important piece of the complete puzzle of success for our students. It takes every single one of us to support our kids appropriately.
Again, it is a blessing to be a part of HMS.

We hope you all had a very restful and safe Thanksgiving Holiday - we are definitely thankful for all of the support shown by our parents and the super effort given by all of our eighth graders! We believe all students are special and unique, and if there is anything we can do to help, please do not hesitate to call or email.
You need to stay updated with all that is going on at HMS---8th graders have so many things going on related to high school next year. Information is available on the school website, school Facebook page, e-mails, newsletters, and if there is a question or concern call for clarification.
