Aloha Vikings!

2nd PTP Deadline 

Good morning, Seniors!  Just a reminder that the 2nd PTP deadline of October 4th is quickly approaching.  Please be sure to email Mrs. Frias when you are done, so she knows to check your PTP in Google Classroom.  See Mrs. Frias in A-1 if you have any questions.


University and Career Fair Forms

This announcement is for ALL Hilo High School Students.  


Good morning, Vikings!  Are you interested in gaining more first-hand experience and information about your post-high school plans?  You're in luck! We have TWO upcoming field trips that can help you do just that.  


On Thursday, October 24th, Hilo High has been invited to take 90 students to the Construction Career Day.  At this Career Day, you will be able to operate heavy machinery, take a ride up into the sky in the bucket of a boom truck, and talk directly with people working in many different areas of the Construction Industry.  If you are interested, please go to A-1 to pick up a field trip packet. Space is limited, so bring your forms back signed ASAP.


On Friday, October 25th, Hilo High has been invited to take another 90 students to the College Fair.  Approximately 75 different colleges and universities are currently scheduled to attend. If you are interested, please go to A-1 to pick up a field trip form.
