We are proud to celebrate our STEM programming. Last week, we were notified that we will be recognized as a Model STEM School by the Department of Public Instruction, and we look forward to this recognition ceremony in June. Our STEM success continued this week as our teachers and students presented at STEMposium in RTP, and we are excited to say many of our teachers will be participating in STEM and Project-Based Learning professional development over the summer.

Child Nutrition Services: CNS has an unwavering commitment to contribute to the academic performance of our students, and End-of-Grade testing provides us with a unique opportunity to have a greater impact! To help prepare more students to perform well on End-of-Grade tests, CNS is offering a complimentary breakfast to all students in grades 3-8 on Tuesday, May 30.
Proctors: We need your help! EOG testing requires lots of individuals as both administrators and proctors. If you are available to proctor between May 30 and June 2, please sign up at this link.
Transportation Parent Portal: We are excited to announce that student transportation information can now be found in one single location, HomeBase, also known as PowerSchool. In order to provide the highest level of customer service to families, Wake County is asking those of you who do not yet have a PowerSchool account to stop by Hilburn’s main office to complete the necessary form. You can find more information at www.wcpss.net/student-information. Once you have a PowerSchool account, look for the Transportation tab to see your student’s transportation status and type. If your student is a bus rider, stop and route information is also provided.
Why I Teach: This week, we are sharing an essay from one of our kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Kaitlyn Summers.
