Word of the Month – TAKING RESPONSIBILITY “Taking responsibility means admitting you do something wrong and trying to make amends. May 28 Morning Announcement – HANDLING NAME CALLING “It is not okay for people to call you names that hurt your feelings.  If someone calls you a name, you can ignore the person or respond assertively.  If the person doesn’t stop, you should tell a grown up.”

CONGRATULATIONS to our wonderful 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Hannah Cotten!  She was awarded the 2018 ROOKIE WINNER of Texas Medical Association’s Ernest and Sarah Butler Awards for Excellence in Science Teaching.  We all know how amazing Mrs. Cotten is and we are excited others are noticing too!  

We are so proud of our 5th graders!  They have been excellent leaders at our school and are ready to spread their wings and head off to middle school in the Fall.  The 5th grade graduation walk around the halls of Hill will occur on Wednesday, May 30th at 2:15 pm.

Do your kids walk or ride their bike to school?  We have some of the best crossing guards in town that keep our Dillos safe each morning and afternoon for arrival and dismissal.  Please show your appreciation for their service to our Hill community on Tuesday, May 29th.  Have your kids make them a card, bake them some goodies, or just tell them how much you appreciate all they have done this year.  …
