Pros●pect (n) – anticipation; expectation; a looking forward​

Good morning Parkwood Hill family,

         I hope you're having a great weekend, and enjoying some sunshine.  Below, you'll see I've added the May calendar, and it's packed with great events!  When our kids return for the final six-weeks on Tuesday, it will move very quickly, so please take a few minutes to preview what's ahead.

         As a reminder, our PTA Spring Social is this Friday, and admission wristbands will be sold all week.  Our PTA is still accepting parent volunteers, so if you'd like to have fun while serving our kiddos, please sign up here.

         We are excited to finish the month of April strong, and appreciate your continued support.  There is much to accomplish, but with your help, the end of the school year will be amazing.  As always, I wish you nothing but the best.  Have a great week ahead!

Giving you my "Bulldog Best, Never Less,"

Brad Tyler, Principal

KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE

IMPORTANT Spring Social Dismissal Information – It will be dark outside when students leave our spring social on Friday, so if your child will be attending, please make a specific plan for him/her to get home safely.  Students may walk home (groups strongly recommended), or be picked up by car using our everyday dismissal routines.  If you will be picking up your child by car, please remain in your vehicle.  If you plan to meet and walk your child home, please designate a place (e.g. bike rack, stop sign, etc.) away from the front doors where you will meet.  It's critical that our front doors not be blocked by parents at dismissal.  Please be patient, safe, and watchful as our students leave in the evening.

Physical Evaluation for Sixth Graders Registering for Athletics – State law requires that UIL Physical and Medical History forms be documented for every student who plans on being in 7th grade athletics.  Parents are asked to have their child's physical completed, and their medical history documented, for submission to Hillwood Middle School as soon as possible.  Click here to access the required physical evaluation and medical history forms.  These must be completed by a physician.

Student Drop-off/Pick-up Safety – All drivers are expected to be vigilant, drive slowly, and follow our "Arrival & Dismissal Guide" found herePlease do not disrupt the flow of traffic by dropping off or picking up your child at a stop sign, or along the main lanes of Redwood Trail; Parkwood Hill Blvd.  Drivers should always yield to pedestrians and demonstrate courtesy to other drivers.
