Hillcrest Happenings September 15 - 19

September: Attendance Awareness Month
September is National Attendance Awareness Month. Student attendance has been identified as a top priority in the Murray City School District.á The district has set a goal of 95% attendance for all students.á This means a student should miss no more than nine total days during the school year.á
Wednesday, September 24 is NO EMPTY SEATS DAY.á Our goal is 100% attendance on this day!
Good attendance matters!
  • School is a students first and most important job.á Being on time for school every day prepares students so that when they graduate and get a job, they will know how to show up for work on time every day.
  • Students who attend school regularly are more likely to graduate and find good jobs.á In fact, a high school graduate makes, on average, a million dollars more than a dropout over a lifetime.
  • School only gets harder when students stay home too much.á Sometimes it's tempting for a student to stay home because they have got too much work or don't understand what is going on in the class.á But missing a day only makes that worse.

School Musical
The school musical this year will be Into the Woods Jr.á We are excited to bring this fabulous production to Hillcrest Jr. High School.á Applications are currently being taken for Stage Crew members for the musical and are due on Monday, September 22.á The Stage Crew application and additional information can be found at http://hjhmusical.weebly.com

She was simply not the type of person to be loud. áEven in the most heated of arguments, or when getting exactly what she wanted for her birthday, she always spoke like a zephyr: soft and gentle.
