FIRST PTA MEETING

Now that school is in full swing, we are holding our first PTA Meeting of the year tomorrow, Wednesday 9:30 am in room 22. Please park on the street - not in the parking lot, and plan to enter the school through the Orange Road doors. If you arrive after 9:40, please enter through the main entrance and come downstairs. At this first meeting we will review and vote on the budget and discuss fall events and the new initiatives we have for this year. Please join us if you are able and know that our next meeting will be held in the evening.

MEMBERSHIP

The PTA has already been very busy this year getting assignment pads produced, organizing upgrades for the auditorium, and getting our Explorers classes ready. In addition to volunteering your time, you can help by joining as a dues paying member. We have a few payment options to consider. The 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 get entered to win a $50 Spirit Wear gift card. Click here to become a member today.

KIDSTUFF FUNDRAISER

We've got the amazing KidStuff Coupon Books back and they're headed home with your kids this week. This is a great fundraiser that gets you the chance to raise money for the school while saving money for your family. Keep an eye on your child’s backpack for more information. The class that sells the most books will win a pizza party!

SHOUT OUTS

Thanks to parents for joining us for the Q&A, the Welcome Picnic, and for Java Love for their hospitality. And thanks to all the volunteers who are serving as classroom liaisons.

REMINDERS

-Registration for Fall Explorers is now open. Hard copies were sent home in backpacks. We have 17 amazing eight-week courses to choose from, with class times before and after school. The session begins Oct. 2. Visit Hillside School PTA to see the catalog and to register click through to Fall Explorers. Any questions, please email the Explorers team.

-School is closed this Thursday, Sept. 21 in observance of Rosh Hashanah.
