According to Hilltop Elementary School Principal Cathy Mowry, the proceeds of a school cookie sale were put aside to provide for a day of fun in the final week of school. Mowry said it is a way of saying thanks for all the kids' hard work. On Wednesday, June 5, the school playground was filled with bounces and games as well as an ice cream treat station as the students celebrated Student Appreciation Day.
Enjoying a cool cup of ice cream during a fun day at Hilltop Elementary School are students, in front: Audrey Jarvis, Bridget Fekety, Gia Martin, Brianna Carney, Micaela Caballero, and Moe Prather.
