Homecoming week starts Monday! This year’s theme is a “Classic Homecoming.” The entire week will be packed with fun activities for the student body, including dress-up days, games for class competition, floats, dances, and parades featuring, among others, beautiful maids.
The HCS student body recently elected the following young ladies to represent their classes on the 2016 Homecoming Court:
Freshman Maids – Addie Cothern & Aliza Williams
Sophomore Maids – Sarah Grace Brownlee & Emily Lewis
Junior Maids – Jaylan Brown & Lauren Horton
Senior Maids – Madelyn Banks, Skylar Patterson & Emily Smith, Band Maid – Anna Tilghman, and Football Maid – Ansley Myers
Don’t forget about the football game Friday night! We hope to have a record crowd of students, faculty and staff, alumni, parents and friends, and just-plain-old sports fans to support our Cougars.
Pictured here are the sponsors and the first members of Hillcrest’s chapter of Mu Alpha Theta, the honor society for mathematics; they were officially inducted into membership during chapel today. High school students in grades 9 through 12 who have completed the equivalent of three years of college-preparatory mathematics are eligible. Then, they must maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average overall in mathematics.
Those who are currently enrolled in a third-year college-preparatory math course are Associates. They are not members of Mu Alpha Theta but are likely candidates for membership who will be fully inducted once they successfully complete geometry and maintain the required GPA.
Congratulations to these hard-working scholars for their impressive achievement!
Mississippi State University held its annual Marching Honor Band as part of the Bulldogs’ first game of the football season against South Alabama this past Saturday, September 3rd. Participants were selected from the first 250 students in 9th grade or above to have registered. Hillcrest’s One Spirit One Sound band was well represented, with 7 members taking part in this thrilling experience.
Highlights of the day included being served breakfast, warming up with the Maroon Band, and parading to Davis Wade stadium, but the culmination of the event was a “mass band” performance at halftime.
