Congratulations to our 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year!!!
Mrs. Tenika Chambers
We are proud of you!
ELDA testing will begin the week of February 17 for students that participate in the ESOL program at Hillcrest Middle School. This test is required of all students statewide that receive ESOL services.
Doctor appointments and other out of school functions should not be scheduled on testing dates. In accordance with Sumter School District Policy and State Testing Regulations, students are not permitted to bring electronic devices into the testing environment. If a cell phone or any electronic device is collected from the student, the device will be held until the testing window has ended. We need your support to ensure that your child is present, on time each day, and alert to do his/her best.
At Hillcrest Middle, we want all students to be successful. We appreciate your cooperation and support.
