Summer Library!
Thank you for visiting the summer library! We had quite a few regulars and even met some new Hickory families. We have great readers at Hickory Hill!

Mrs. Bergen & Mrs. Trout
Read Throughout the Summer
Dear HH families,
Hope you are getting all the summer books you are reading logged on the Scholastic Summer Reading website.  It is a fun competition among schools to see which school can read the most minutes. Each student was given a user name and password so that they could register and participate with us. If you need help with that information or registration, please let us know.
Our goal is for all students to read at least 20 minutes each day over the summer! Pizza West has graciously donated pizza certificates for all students that meet their goal!
Go team Hickory Hill!
Thanks, as always, for your support!
Mrs. Nichols and Mrs. Bergen
Back by popular demand, Hickory Hill will once again be holding an all-school book club in October!! Each HH family will receive their own copy of the same book to read and some fun activities to do at home together. We will also have some awesome activities here at school. A special shout out to Friends of Hickory Hill for their support of this project! I could not get this done without them!!
Thank you for your excitement about our book club! Stay tuned for more information when we return in August…….
Mrs. Nichols

7th Grade Requirements
A reminder from the school nurse:  Nebraska law requires students entering 7th grade to have a complete physical (this physical also fulfills the requirements for a sports physical) and immunizations including the Tdap booster after 10 years of age.  Students will not be allowed to start school until all required immunizations are turned in.   La Vista Jr. High will be closed for the summer and our secretary will be working from PLHS this summer.  Please note that paperwork can be turned in at any time to your elementary nurse or to LVJH prior to the last day of school.  Over the summer all paperwork can be turned in at PLHS.  Please contact the La Vista Jr. High Nurse, Trish Franck, if you have any questions or concerns at 402-898-0436.
