Congratulations Hill City Elementary!
Hill City Elementary was recognized by the Pickens County Board of Education at its February 13, 2020 meeting as a 2019-2020 Title I Distinguished School. The Distinguished Schools designation recognizes the highest-performing Title I schools in Georgia, which means our school is among the top 5%. Hill City Elementary now has an opportunity to apply to be selected as a National Title I Distinguished School. If named as a winner, the school will receive $20,000 and be invited to attend the National Conference next year in Boston, Massachusetts.
Congratulations, Mrs. Chapman!
The Georgia Foundation for Agriculture (GFA) has presented a $1,000 grant to Hill City Elementary School for its ag education program. The grant will be used to build and plant five raised garden beds on the school playground. Each grade will maintain its own garden bed.
