October 3rd, 2017

Happy October! We hope you’re settling in to the routing and that the school year is off to a nice start. This is Hillside’s Week of Respect, Walk / Bike to School Day and the start of Fall Explorers.


For third grade families: The Principal’s Newsletter of 9-29 had information you need to register for aesthetics.

Monday was Picture Day. Information about ordering pictures from the vendor went home in the backpacks.

Help us reach our goal of 100 members! Our PTA Membership drive is on until Oct. 15. PTA dues go directly to making Hillside better for everyone in big and small ways. If you join before Oct 15 you are eligible for special thank you gifts and if you sign up to make a $5 monthly donation, you are entered to win a $50 Spirit Wear gift card. Go to the PTA Website to sign up.


You should have received your KidStuff Coupon Book. To take advantage of the savings, please return $25 (with the option to purchase additional books). Using only a couple of the offers pays for the book! Don't want it? Just return to your homeroom teacher. The homeroom with the most books sold will be celebrated! If you have any questions, contact Kristina Drymalski.


Thanks to the BTSN team for hospitality: Leslie Wade; Alessandra DeBlasio; LaNa Jones-Jules and for Spirit Wear: Oxana Shevchuk and Tessa Vining

In honor of Walk/Bike to School, take the opportunity to thank your Crossing Guards. They keep us safe every day and we thank them on National Crossing Guard Appreciation Day on Wednesday.


Boogie Bash is happening on October 27th. Tickets will go on sale next week but volunteer signups are open now.
