Hillview 6th Grade Movie Night!!!!!!!!!

Hillview 6th Grade Movie Night!!!!!!!!!

After weeks of planning and preparation for the movie night, the night had finally arrived.
Lines of bustling 6th graders entered the PAC to buy candy, brownies, and cookies, then headed into the PAC to play lots of fun games before the movie. As a tradition, the 6th graders did not know the movie. They were surprised by the posters and decorations with the theme of the movie: The LEGO Movie!

The 8th graders in ASB decided on the movie a week before. The Lego Movie was a
great movie about growing up and being yourself, suitable for movie night. Many students
seemed to enjoy it and had a great time at the movie night. Approximately 210 students
attended. Before ASB played the movie, they played two games.

–Omniken bounce: the entire crowd had to bounce the giant Omniken ball from the
bottom of the seats in the PAC to hit the wall.

–The rubber face challenge: ten volunteers had to get a rubber band from under their
nose to their neck.

After those exciting games, it was time for the movie. The crowd cheered, and laughed, and sang the songs. They enjoyed assorted candies, such as Snickers, Twix, peanut and regular M&Ms, Skittles, and so much more. During the Intermission, they bought soda, chips, and slushies!

Overall, the movie night was a success! The sixth graders had a blast, and the ASB had a great time too!

Spirit Week Sept 8-12!

Spirit Competition 2014-2015 is about to kick off!!!

A new school year, a new ASB, and sooooo much to report in one blog post!  Here is a summary:
  • Slushies on sale at brunch! 
  • Student Center Store officially open 
  • Spirit Competition kicks off this week! 
  • Block H with a new and improved point tracking system!  
Slushies on sale at brunch!
You asked and we listened! Slushies will be on sale everyday at brunch instead of just one day a week. These delicious, fruity slushies are $2 and are on-sale at brunch each and everyday while supplies last. Just show up to the student center.  

The Student Store officially opens! Thanks for your patience as we received our PE clothes order late. If you still need/want PE Clothes, see Mrs. Fichou in the new blue Student Store. We have a new shipment of small sizes coming in soon! Also for sale in the student store are snacks at brunch, stylus pens, pens, and more!  

Spirit Competition! It's time to kick off the spirit competition for Hillview! The new year brings some changes including a revamped scoring system with a variety of games, both digital and live on-stage, for the bold and the less bold, for the techies, the athletic, the witty, the dancers, and the brave...we have something for everyone this year! Many Fridays will include spirit challenges that you can compete at lunch or even at-home depending on the event. Use your wits, your nerves, your teamwork, and your determination to defeat the competition and score spirit points for your grade! May the best and most spirited grade win an exciting field trip to Cinemark Movie Theaters where we will rent out a private movie theater just for the winning class, provide you with ICEEs, popcorn, and candy, and then finish things off with a picnic party bash complete with music, a dj, games, and lunch! More details on your student council corner soon...  

Block H with a new and improved point tracking system! Click on the Block H tab above and read all about how you can score points for school and service involvement! This is easier to understand and we've narrowed it down to two major cateogories and combined all existing points (so don't worry, you didn't lose any!!). If you want to check your point totals, check in with Mrs. Fichou in the student center at brunch or lunch!

May Mahem is upon us!!

Stay tuned all month long for May-Mayhem Challenges for spirit points!! May the best team earn their trip to Raging Waters! Will it be 6th grade? 7th grade? 8th grade? May Mayhem may be the deciding factor!!!

Here's a message from your ASB about May Mayhem!

Attention all Hillview students- as some of you may know hawkapalooza will be on the last day of school this year instead of before raging waters. This means hawkapalooza will not be a spirit competition but it will be an incredible day of fun bigger and badder than last year. To counter this we have created a spirit point extravaganza!! May mayhem is here! There are to be many games coming up as the month of May continues. Starting next Monday and ending Tuesday there will be a song lyrical guess. Every other day there will be a new game. These games will be in any style, on the iPad, during lunch, toy drives, during Hawktalk or on your own time. Which grade wants it the most? We'll see, all games are open to all grades and spirit points are given by participation only AND Spirit week next week which will be a good start. More information will be given soon. Make sure to compete because raging waters is anybody's game and these games can easily be the deciding factor! Good luck hawks and may the best grade win!

Noon Event: Minute To Win It Edition

Minute to Win it at Hillview!
Last Friday ASB put on a noon event – Minute to Win It competition where the 7th graders pulled ahead. The events included PUDDLE JUMP, where contestant had to blow three sets of ping pong balls into a red solo cup as the pictures below describe:

In this event Sydney Williams came out on top (7th grade), and in fact, beat the other contestants by a landslide. Wasn’t exactly a close match… but good luck to the 6th and 8th grade students next time!
Secondly ASB ran an event called BACKFLIP, another minute to win it game. This game made contestants throw up two pencils and have to catch that. To make it more difficult, they had to continue to add two pencil, creating 6 rounds, that put the students to the test as they are shown below:
Many couldn’t complete the last rounds, flipping 12 pencils, but fortunately all contestants never gave up. GREAT JOB HAWKS!

Now let see some pictures from the actual event!!
