We came, we saw, we conquered… Homecoming week! Congratulations to the Cougar varsity football team for an exciting win over Amite Friday night. Our boys fought hard and came out with the victory, which they then celebrated at the Homecoming dance. Prior to that, it was a week filled with games, costumes, and a parade, which allowed upper-school classes to compete for points and yet-to-be-determined prizes. The seniors earned the most points in the high school, and the 8th grade took the win in the junior high. Congratulations to both classes!
Congratulations also must go to Madelyn Banks, who was elected 2016 Homecoming Queen. She and all the other maids not only looked beautiful Friday night, but they represented Hillcrest well.
School has now returned somewhat back to normal; however, the upper school will be taking 9 Weeks’ Exams this week, and we will be on regular schedule each day. Today, due to an early-morning power outage, students will only take their second period exams; the first period exam has been moved to Thursday. Tuesday’s exams are third and fourth periods; Wednesday’s exams are fifth and sixth periods; and Thursday’s exams are first and seventh periods, as well as any make-ups students may have. After that, school will be closed for a well-deserved four-day weekend for Fall Break!
