Congratulations to the HHS Robotics Team!
The Hillsdale High School Robotics Team attended the 2016 International Botball Tournament this summer, finishing 6th place in the world overall and bringing back two trophies: 4th Place Double Elimination and Overall Judges Choice. The tournament, which was held in St. Augustine, Florida, from July 6th - 10th, was attended by 55 teams from all over the world. The Botball competition had 344 registered teams worldwide this season. The team met three times a week for four and a half hours each meeting during the summer in order to prepare for the competition. Through the hard work of the club through the school year and especially the core team members during the summer, the team has established themselves as one of the best Botball teams in the world!

Looking for more patience and less stress? Summer is here and it might be a great time to learn a new skill MINDFULNESS. Mindfulness is a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and environment. Research finds that mindfulness decreases stress and anxiety, increases attention, improves interpersonal relationships, fosters compassion and strengthens emotional regulation.
If you have been by the school in the past month, you have noticed the construction that has started on the southwest corner of the campus. We are anxiously awaiting the completion of the 20 classroom facility that is being built, and which is due to be completed in about a year. To see the lay-out and design images, please click here...
