The South Carolina Department of Education has awarded Hillcrest Middle School the 2011 Palmetto Silver Award in recognition of academic achievement.
In its 11th year, the Palmetto Gold and Palmetto Silver awards program was created by the South Carolina General Assembly to recognize schools that attained high levels of absolute performance, high rates of growth, and substantial progress in closing achievement gaps between groups of students.
Box Tops for Education!
Way to go, Wildcats! We raised over $1500.00 last year, beating our goal of $1200.00 in only our second year of doing Box Tops! Let's really show all the other schools how its done this year and raise $1600.00 or more!
That means better prizes, better parties, and more help for our school, but you've got to SAVE and SUBMIT as many Box Tops as you can!
Hope you've been saving Box Tops all summer long because our first contest, "Summer Savings Contest" ends September 4, 2014! You still have time to save Box Tops and remember to hand them over to your fourth period teacher. Please label a snack baggie or sealed envelope with student's full name, grade and fourth period teacher's name with a sharpie marker to ensure credit is given for the Box Tops.
