Hilton High School students and staff had another amazing day for Welcome Fest, the annual celebration of the new school year. Principal Brian Bartalo, who came up with the idea about 15 years ago, said he can't remember a year that the weather wasn't beautiful. Always held the first Friday of the new school year, this year's celebration featured a variety of games and activities that students could enjoy during an extended lunch period, such as a dunking booth, volleyball, a inflatable obstacle course, lawn games, a selfie station and snacks for sale. Students earned "dunking dollars" for good behavior that they could then cash in to participate in some of the events. Principal Bartalo said he loves to look around and see different groups of students participating in the events together.
