Science Hill is proud to be a smoke-free campus!!
A 100 percent tobacco-free school policy reflects a firm commitment by school administration, teachers and parents to provide students, personnel, and community members a safe, tobacco-free  environment. Tobacco-free schools (including alternate nicotine products and vapor products) give adults the opportunity to be role models for tobacco-free lifestyles and set the tone for reduced social acceptance of tobacco use. In addition, studies show that students in tobacco-free schools are less likely to start smoking. More resources: http://www.tobaccofreeschoolsky.org/index.html


If you come in to the school you  must sign in at the front office for security reasons.  Also, we get to count your time here in the school as volunteer hours.  PTA generally will recognize a “volunteer of the month” at the regular PTA meetings. 



March 1st – Literacy night and chili supper for preschool-4th grade at 6:00 p.m. We will have a guest reader. Students will get a free book and be able to take an AR test.


All 8th graders are encouraged to apply for the Rogers Explorers. The deadline for this is February 25th. If you did not get an application and would like one, please see your homeroom teacher.


All students are required to have at least one of the series of 2 Hepatitis A vaccines by July 1, 2018.  If your student hasn’t gotten them, now is the time to begin the series.  The two shots must be separated by 6 months.  Walmart pharmacy notified us that they have Hep A in stock right now and can give it to anyone who is 9 and older on a walk-in basis.  You can also check with your local pharmacy or with your family doctor to get this.  Please contact Nurse Greta at 423-3341 during school hours if you have questions about this.  You won’t want to wait until school starts next year to get this.  Your child may not be eligible to start school next year if they do not meet the requirements.

Grandparent Support Group



Are you raising a grandchild in your home? If so, you are invited to attend our monthly support group. The group meets once a month and shares experiences. We have programs and speakers designed for grandparents and a free lunch provided. This free service is provided by the Family Resource and Youth Service Centers of Pulaski County, Somerset and Science Hill Schools.

 If you would like more information, please call Keli Nelson at 679-7824 or your Family Resource Services Center at your child’s school.

Pop Tab Collection

Please help 4th and 5th graders with their service project of collecting pop tabs for 4-H club. The collected pop tabs will be recycled and the money earned will be used to sponsor children to attend a summer camp. You may turn in any pop tabs to Mrs. Eastham or give to any 4th or 5th grader.

Thank you for helping us give back to our community!
