It’s hard to believe it is almost March and Spring Break is just around the corner. Please remember that Thursday, March 24, is a make-up day. This Friday, March 4, is an early-release day. School will end at 12:30, and all students should be picked up or met at the bus stop accordingly. Aftercare students are able to stay at school until 6:00.
Hopefully, you have received information about our 3D Fun Run, which is scheduled for Wednesday, March 23. Our teachers and students are excited to take part in this event and to raise funds for new technologies, specifically 3D printers, at Hilburn Academy. Mrs. Freeze and I visited NC State Libraries last week and met with their Makerspace Director to learn and brainstorm ideas. We are extremely excited about the possibilities we can bring to Hilburn students in the 2016-2017 school year.
We are working hard to build a Business Alliance for the 2016-2017 school year. Thus far, we are excited to partner with Raleigh Little Theatre and Brooks-Pierce, both of whom will be directly supporting and enriching instruction by partnering with teachers and students. We continue to explore other business partners and are looking for organizations willing to commit their time and expertise to our students in a variety of ways. If you are part of a business that would be willing to partner with the school or have some suggestions, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FOOD DRIVE THIS WEEK
Our Student Government is sponsoring a food drive, starting today and until Friday, March 11. Please send cans and dried goods by your students when possible.
Read Across America Day is this Wednesday, March 2. We will be celebrating reading across classrooms all week at Hilburn and would love students to celebrate reading at home as well. Have a great week.
