Greetings 12th grade students and Parent/Guardians,

Class of 2021, welcome to your Senior Year at Hilltop High School!

We are happy to have you here with us for your last year of high school and we look forward to welcoming you back in person as soon as we can bring you all back safely to enjoy the rest of the school year. During this time, we would be hosting our Senior Parent Night Presentation to all of you, but due to COVID-19, we will be providing you with the most updated information in a virtual setting through a short Power Point presentation.
Please take a few minutes to go over this presentation as it contains critical information about how to be successful during your senior year and plan for next steps in your post-secondary goals. In this presentation you will also find details about colleges and other valuable resources to help you navigate through your senior year. If you have any questions, please contact your school counselor.
