                     THE MESSENGER
                    Our school and community will educate and inspire our students through exceptional learning opportunities.                  Summer, 2006

                                                   Making Hillsboro R-3 School District a Source of Community Pride!

                                      The 2006-07 school year is about to begin. We can’t wait and we will be ready!

                               Although students have been away from our buildings, there has been no shortage of work this summer.
                               Principals have been hiring staff, finishing students’ schedules, and planning activities to improve curriculum,
          instruction and student learning. The District has been cleaning, painting, repairing, replacing, upgrading and generally improving
          every campus in the District. When you return this fall, I guarantee you will be very pleased with the improvements.

          All of last year, we focused heavily on planning. We started planning for expected growth in the community and for the changing
          academic needs of our students. We will continue to plan but, this year, it is also time to begin putting plans into action.

          So what can you expect this year? Academically, teachers will refine their instructional focus. They will target those things that are
          absolutely essential for students to know and will dedicate whatever time is necessary to ensure that students learn these essential
          things. The District will also continue to care for the facilities that you, as taxpayers, have provided for our students. Maintenance
          and repair work that was deferred in past years will be completed this year. We will remodel and renovate the Elementary building
          during the summer of 2007. An Alternative School building will be constructed (budget permitting) that will address the special
          requirements of some of our Jr. High and High School students. Finally, athletic facilities will be greatly improved, will be safer for
          our students, will be better utilized for school-day activities (not just athletics) and will be a source of great pride for the community.

          In summary, we’re implementing our plans and we’re making new plans. We want Hillsboro R-3 School District to be the
          best school district that you, as parents and taxpayers, could hope for. We will accomplish this by providing the best staff, the
          best resources, the best facilities and the best education then work tirelessly to ensure that students take advantage of this great
          opportunity. We want you and our students to be proud to tell everyone that your district is the Hillsboro R-3 School District!

          Hillsboro R-3 Buses to be Scheduled using Computerized Routing System
A very powerful computerized routing, scheduling, and student locator program, VersaTrans, will be used to
design and route Hillsboro R-3 School District buses beginning this year. Student and District facility data,
addresses, and locations, and GPS mapping systems have been uploaded, and the first versions of the routes
will be generated towards the last week of July.

The VersaTrans program was specifically designed for the student transportation industry, and is being widely
used by many school districts in the nation, including Festus R-6 District, in St. Louis County’s Parkway
School District, and others. The system is designed to maximize the efficiency of pupil transportation system
routes and schedules, the conservation of fuel, and the best use of buses within the parameters of the District’s
policies and guidelines.

         ...........BUS ROUTES COMING SOON...........
 When completed, the Hillsboro R-3 bus routes will be posted in each of the buildings and at
 the administration building. You may also find the bus routes on the District’s website at In addition to the routes, the website will also contain Student
 Bus Conduct Rules, Transportation Department contact numbers, and other pertinent
 information related to the District’s student transportation system.

  On April 18 and 25, the Hillsboro Intermediate Building resurrected the (previous) annual Walk-A-Thon benefiting the Hillsboro Food Pantry.
  Twenty one years ago, Mary An Holifield, EMH teacher and Mona (Jarnagin) Hunt, 6th grade teacher and counselor, introduced the idea of the
  Walk-A-Thon. Sandy Dietrich, Susan Newell, and Denise Wuest, 6th grade teachers at the Intermediate suggested that all proceeds be donated to
  the Hillsboro Food Pantry. During an eighteen year period, the students of the Intermediate rasied enough money to purchase two vans and assist
  in the construction of the current food pantry building located ont the Civic grounds. As of May 1, the Intermediate students raised over $2,000.00.
  Three years ago, the Walk-A-Thon went by the way side, but under the leadership of Scott Readnour, the guidance staff, consisting of Karen Schuh,
  Amy Hodge, Jeni Van Houten, and Mona Hunt, the Walk-A-Thon was reinstated. According to Mr. Readnour, the Walk-A-Thon is here to stay.
  Once again the students, parents, teachers, and members of the Hillsboro Food Pantry have joined forces to assist Hillsboro area families in need.

  Food Pantry President, Jane Dubois, and other board members were on hand to address, praise, and thank the Intermediate students for their hard
  work. Retired teachers, Mary An Holifield and Sandy Dietrich walked the track to show their continued support of this project. Superintendent
  Randy Charles came out to join the students in their efforts. Mona Hunt’s favorite memory of Walk-A-Thon days gone by was of former Super-
  intendent, James Sucharski, walking the track in his three piece suit and dress shoes. The leadership of the Hillsboro School District has always
  encouraged community service projects. The students are shown by example that the Walk-A-Thon is a team effort. Community Service is alive
  and well in the Hillsboro School District.

                            SUMMER SCHOOL NEWS  - 12
        Students, teachers, and staff of grades 5-12 survived the 2006 Island of Adventure Summer School Program! Summer school began in the
high school with an “opening day” assembly introducing the teachers and the courses being offered. Attendance prizes were awarded during the
assembly to entice students to exhibit outstanding behavior and maintain good attendance throughout the four week program. Students received
incentive prizes daily. Teachers were rewarded with coupon books and football tickets.
        The Intermediate students planned their own vacations across the U. S., tanning on the sunny beaches of Florida, catching waves on the
California Coast, or checking out the largest potato in the world in Idaho. It wasn’t unusual to see constant movement in the Intermediate classrooms:
from creating Father’s Day cards in Computer Adventure to balloon relay races in Let’s Get Moving, to balloon cars cruising down the halls in
Mission Impossible, to challenging games of Jenga, charades, and other brain teasers in Survivor and Game Room, to getting stuck in the sticky
dough in Arts and Crafts, not to mention the fabulous aromas and lovely sounds of French music from the French Cafe. Teamwork and cooperation
were key to the success of this program. The Intermediate and Junior High teamed up on Wednesdays for the viewing of incentive movies with
popcorn intermissions, dodge ball contests, a Luau and a day of water sports. Everyone looked much cooler after the Hillsboro Fire Department
sprayed them off.
        The Junior High classes were very involved in communication arts and math remediation. The students were challenged to create their own
personal web page. It was not uncommon to see and smell interesting and unusual experiments in the Science Galore classes. Field hockey and dodge
ball in Lifetime Sports appeared to be the favorite of many Junior High students. The students provided a unique twist to several well loved folktales
as they presented these tales to the primary students of grades K-2. A great big thanks to the junior high classes for sponsoring a canned food drive
and a car wash benefiting the Hillsboro Food Pantry.
        The high school students, under the direction of their teachers worked hard to complete the work required in order to recover credits. Students
in Graphic Art designed their own CD, while students in Individual Art class created pottery and jewelry. There is no end to the students’ talents. The
social studies department exposed students to various facets of the Middle Ages, Industrialization, World War I and II along with a look at the Cold
War, the sixties, and the structure of the U.S. government. Students were encouraged to participate in an archery competition and researched their
family genealogy to create family shields. Students were exposed to many elements of Physical Science, Chemistry, and Biology. It was exciting
to see students acquiring life skills in the kitchen, managing their money, filling out job applications, creating resumes and practicing interviewing
techniques. Students were challenged to read The Odyssey focusing on Shakespeare and the time period. The World of Work students received
guidance filling out time sheets, strengthened their job skills, and developed a good work ethic.
        On June 30th, students and staff celebrated the close of summer school with pretzels from Gus’ and an ice cream social in addition to a
special presentation by the U.S. Army and the incentive assembly. Many students won large prizes donated by several local businesses and the
Hillsboro Mother’s Club. All students received coupons for discounted tickets to Six Flags Amusement Park.
I’d like to thank students, parents, teachers, the librarian, the nurse, custodial staff, the cafeteria staff, the maintenance department, office staff,
bus drivers and transportation staff, the security officer and members of the community for their cooperation and support for this summer
school program. It is amazing what can be accomplished when we all work together.
