The International Thespian Society, founded in 1929, is the student honorary division of the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA), the professional association for theatre education. They serve over 4,700 schools around the world with an active student membership of more than 125,000. The following students recently earned induction into the International Thespian Society. Each inductee has completed over 100 hours of excellent work in theatre arts and related disciplines. In doing so, they have acquired essential 21st century life and career skills that include creativity and innovation, critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and effective communication. These inductees now join the ranks of over 2.3 million Thespians and Thespian alumni, including Jane Lynch, John Goodman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tom Hanks.
Please join us in celebrating the hard work and achievements of these Thespian Honor Students, their troupe officers and their troupe director.
Students from all three of our high schools participated in the International Thespian Society’s Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat program. On Halloween, the students went trick-or-treating in their neighborhoods, but instead of asking for candy, they asked for non-perishable food goods. We are proud to announce the students were able to donate over 2900 pounds of nonperishable foods to the Hilliard food pantry.
Senior Jared Ball competed against the best high school wrestlers around the country this past weekend and won the Super 32 Challenge Wrestling Tournament in Greensboro, NC. There were 10 State Champions from across the country registered in his weight class (195). In the finals he defeated the #6 ranked wrestler in the country, 5-1. Jared should be ranked in the top 5 in the country following this tournament. Jared is a University of Tennessee Chattanooga commit.
Congrats to Jared!
In the Hilliard City School District, we work to create a learning environment that prepares our students to engage in the literate world around them. In our district, we strive to grow the academics, interests and mindset of every reader. Join us at 6:30 on Wednesday, November 8, at Heritage Middle School as we share the story of literacy in our elementary schools. This informational session will allow parents the opportunity to hear about the opportunities students experience in our classrooms. Read More…
This year we will again be using School Messenger to CALL all parents and guardians in our District to notify them of weather delays or cancelations. It’s imperative that your phone number is correct in Home Access. The calls will go to PRIMARY numbers only, so be sure you have the number you want weather calls to go to listed as your primary number.
In order to test this system, we will do a test call this Friday, October 20 at 4pm. This test call will go to all parents and staff. It will also go to community members who are signed up on School Messenger.
We will also still send an email, post on Twitter and Facebook, post on our building web pages and notify local media when we have weather delays or cancelations.
