Save the date and spread the news about our Fall Open House! If you have friends, neighbors, teammates, siblings, other children or fellow parishioners that you think would be a good fit for the Hill-Murray community, please forward them this email and have them RSVP. They’ll get a chance to meet and learn from H-M teachers, coaches and leaders of school clubs.

They can also visit our Admissions page on our website to learn more.

Important Senior Meetings

Seniors and parents, please mark your calendars now for these meetings. There is a MANDATORY senior meeting at the beginning of school. At this meeting, students will receive their transcript so that they can apply to colleges, as well as some important handouts. We will lay out the entire senior year and the application timeline. There will be ample time for questions. The meeting will last an hour. Try to arrive 15 minutes early to receive your materials.

These meetings are:

Sunday August 28, 5:00PM, Auditorium

Wednesday August 31, 7:00PM, Auditorium (first day of school)

Plan to attend ONLY ONE of these meetings! Fall athletes be sure to check your practice schedules and choose the most appropriate meeting.

No Need for Alarm, But Consider Adjusting Your Wake-up Alarm

One of the best things about summer Is sleeping in, and we have all probably taken advantage of that. It’s time to start thinking about getting in sleep shape for school. With less than three weeks before school starts, consider adjusting your sleep schedule in 15-minute increments a few times a week. Go to bed 15 minutes earlier and get up 15 minutes earlier.

By the time the bells start ringing on August 31, you will have made an adjustment back to the school schedule. Your brain and your body will thank you!

For more information on good sleep hygiene, visit the National Sleep Foundation. A friendly suggestion from your caring H-M Guidance and Counseling Department.
