The end of Third Quarter and Spring Break are upon us! This Thursday is a make-up inclement weather day, and Spring Break begins Friday. Students will return to school on Monday, April 4th, to start the last quarter of the 2015-2016 school year.
This week is Random Acts of Kindness Week at Hilburn. We have challenged our teachers and students to participate, and you may have already felt this excitement at home as many teachers began planning with their students last week. Please encourage small, individual acts throughout the week and check in with your student(s) to hear how they are participating in and seeing acts of kindness.
We have a big day at school this Wednesday, March 23rd. Students will participate in the 3D Fun Run throughout the day. This is our last week, and we’re making excellent progress toward our fundraising goal, but we still need your help to meet our goal and to create our 3D MakerSpace. I want to thank Geof Hileman for his organization of and on-going work with the Fun Run. His efforts to get our teachers and students excited are evident each day.
We will also host NC State STEM Night this Wednesday, March 23rd, from 6:00 to 7:30. Please join us for the evening of activities and fun! When students return from Spring Break, they will receive their report cards on Friday, April 8th. The Rising Sixth-Grade Parent Session is also scheduled for the morning of the 8th at 8:30 in the Media Center.
We are getting reports and have seen parents dropping off students in the bus loop in the morning. If you are using carpool, you must adhere to carpool guidelines and drop off your students in the carpool loop.
We have one more thank you to City Serve participants who supported Hilburn on Saturday. As a result of their service, many teachers were able to get classroom projects completed, and we now have gravel paths to the trailers! We have a wonderful, supportive community, and as a staff, we are so grateful for the contributions you all make to Hilburn.
Let’s enjoy a great close to the third quarter this week.
