Crazy Crowds at Schedule Pick-Ups

12 Aug 2014 by Carlie Ranno, No Comments »

Last Tuesday, many 7th and 8th graders came to find out their schedules for the current school year, which started this week! How many of you can believe school is already here? I know I can’t!  Summer just flew by. The schedule pick-ups took place in Hillcrest’s gym which was great because we were lucky enough to stay in an air-conditioned building instead of the scorching heat outside. Various school clubs (i.e. Yearbook, TDN, HMSTV, PTSA, etc.) set up tables so that students and parents could ask questions, gather information, and learn more about each club’s activities. The day was not only informative, it was a lot of fun too!

Throughout the day, we had three main times when students were set to pick up their schedules and to learn about other activities this coming year. 12:30-2:30 was set aside for the crowds of anxious 7th graders ready to pick up their first official middle school schedules. 2:30-4:30 was reserved for the 8th grade schedule pickups, and 5:00-6:00 was reserved for both 7th and 8th graders who were not able to attend the earlier sessions. Yearbook was busy pre-selling the 2014-2015 yearbooks at a discount, TDN/HMSTV was recruiting new members for the 2014/2015 school year, and the physical education department was selling PE clothes. The whole day was very busy; although, things did get a little bit slower towards 4:15.

Mr. Herold, Brandon, Aditi, Rebecca, Shayan, and I all helped out at the TDN/HMSTV table. We played music throughout the day and sponsored a Skittle contest at our table in which we would ask every student one question about TDN/HMSTV. If they answered correctly, they could enter one guess for how many Skittles they thought were in the jar! This gave us an opportunity to inform many students and parents about TDN/HMSTV.   We hope to see more members join us this year!

Overall, I think the turnout was great and everyone had fun reuniting with their teachers and old friends.
