"Free Period: The Podcast"

Welcome to Free Period: The Podcast! This is your one-stop-shop for all things Hill - from current events and campus happenings to the stories and narratives that make our school community one-of-a-kind. When our students and staff have a break in their school day it's called a free period. We're hoping this break from the daily grind will be your free period.
