March 6, 2018

Hello Hillside. As the saying goes, March came in like a lion. Hope everyone stayed safe in last week’s storm and we hope March goes out like a lamb!

SCHOOL SAFETY UPDATES

Dr. Anglin shared new safety measures being implemented this week in the March 2 Note from the Principal’s Desk. The adjustments are as follows:

-The Hillside parking lot is for Staff Parking only.

-When visitors are buzzed into the building, do not hold the door for anyone behind you.

-Visitor’s must sign in and out of the school building. Previously, visitors were only required to sign in and the administration wants to document that visitors have left the building.

UPDATE ON SCHOOL TOURS

As previously announced, daytime school tours have been cancelled for this year. Hillside will hold evening tours for prospective families tonight from 6 to 7 pm and from 7:15 to 8:15 pm and we need your help. Please sign up here if you are able to volunteer your time. For reference, here is the revised tour schedule.

CAREER PANEL FOR SCIENCE DAY ON APRIL 20

As part of our inaugural ‘Science Day’ on April 20, students will hear from a variety of people who have a science or engineering career. We need your help recruiting science and engineering professionals who represent a diverse workforce. Some examples include: wildlife biologists, chemical engineers, food chemists, astronomers, doctors, nurses, civil engineers, physicists, etc. If you or someone you know would be an ideal candidate for the career panel, please complete the form sent home or contact us here.

PLANNING UNDERWAY FOR FIFTH GRADE PICNIC

In keeping with the annual tradition, there is a celebratory picnic for fifth grade students in June and we need your help planning so we can send our kids into the future in proper Hillside style! We're looking for help with planning and volunteers to be there on the day of the picnic. Event is Friday June 15th at 11 am with a rain date of Monday June 19. Sign up here.
