6th Grade Honors Academy

Do you have a 5th grader looking for a challenge in 6th grade?  Do they want the chance to be on a middle school campus and experience all of the things middle school has to offer?  If you answered yes to these questions, then Hillview's 6th grade Honors Academy might be the place for you.  Join us on Wednesday, March 13th at 5:30pm in our cafeteria for a parent (and student) information night.  We will review the program, admission requirements, and answer questions.  If you can't make that meeting, we will post the PowerPoint and details here.
