Principals Message: APP Class


Parents/Guardians and Students,


APP is a class period each day where students can work to improve their grades (9:07 to 9:44). Students can re-take tests, finish assignments and receive additional help with class content.  Each day but Tuesday students may select any class to attend for support.  They must request an APP pass through the My Home Work App 1 day in advance.  Daily students must enter their school ID number to show their attendance in APP.  APP is a class period that is graded with a Pass/Fail where students can receive a quarter credit.  If students do not actively engage or attend APP they will receive an F grade which will affect their GPA.  Parents if your student is not attending APP and receiving an F grade you may contact their counselor/assistant principal to ask for educational release.  Students that are approved for educational release must leave campus during APP.

Artstock Results:


We want to congratulate those students that participated in this year’s ArtStock event. ArtStock is a bi-district art competition where students create a work of art from start to finish in just four hours. This is a difficult feat for any artist, and these kids were up against some of the best artists from each of the schools involved. We competed against eleven other schools and brought home a 1st or 2nd place award in every category we entered. These kids also took the Sweepstakes award for their excellent performance at the competition. 


We had eleven students participate –  


Lukas Rohde

Micaela Madariaga

Emma Cecil

Blaise Brady

Elena Parker

Amber Parker

Kodie Gonzalez

Leonard Beddoes

Jakki Jessop

Jonathan Madill

Winners included Lukas Rohde who brought home a 1st place in the 2D Traditional category, Blaise Brady who won 1st place in 2D Contemporary, Elena Parker who won 2nd place in 2D Fantasy, and Amber Parker who won 2nd place in the 3D Functional category. They represented the Art Department and Hillcrest so well!
