The Spring Reading All-Stars Program is a reading incentive challenge for our 6th- 8th grade students aimed at promoting reading and academic success across the Upstate.
Students are challenged to read 5 reading level appropriate books 500 pages (Middle Schools) by May 31, 2021. Upload the form to the Greenville Drive web-site or return it to the library at Hillcrest Middle.
Join us this summer with OverDrive’s annual reading program. Sora Sweet Reads is designed for schools in the United States and Canada to encourage students to keep reading all year long. We’re offering a collection of free and simultaneous use juvenile and young adult ebooks (and select audiobooks).

Please have your student at school on time to begin testing each day.
Breakfast will be available prior to the start of the test.
Students may not have possession of or use any electronic devices (aside from their Chromebook testing device) during testing. All electronics (cell phones, smart watches, or any other connected devices) will be collected at the beginning of each testing session. Students should bring a book or something to occupy themselves while others finish testing.
Tests are untimed, however, we anticipate students being done with their tests by noon each day (some will finish earlier, others will be given time beyond noon to finish as needed).
Please do not make any appointments that require early dismissal prior to the anticipated ending time of the tests.
When taking the math or science portion of the test, a calculator is provided within the test. If your student requires a handheld calculator, he/she should talk to his/her math or science teacher the week prior to the test. All handheld calculators must be turned in the teacher at least 24 hours in advance of the test.
