Happy first full week of school! Hope everyone got off to a great start and you had a chance to cheer on our students and network at the Breakfast. For new Hillside parents, a reminder that there is a new parent orientation with Dr. Anglin Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm as well as two upcoming informal Q&As with parents. And please make note of the Hillside Welcome Back Picnic on Sept. 15, a new event for us this year. See below for all upcoming dates.

If you have scheduling issues or questions, please contact Assistant Principal Krenn. For any other PTA-related questions, please reach out to us.


Meet other parents, support our teachers, help your school help you and your kids and have some fun. We invite all parents to officially join the PTA. Dues are used to put on events for the parents, pay for assignment pads for students and other school-related supplies and activities. You can sign up here.


Thanks to the PTA for organizing the Breakfast (and Beth Larson for setting up), Larry Glover for leading the lineup for Dads and Father Figures and Leslie Wade and her team of volunteers for a terrific Welcome Back lunch for the teachers: Beth Larson, Helen Donnelly, Gina Fortt, Heather Dibble, Kate Zernike, Tessa Vining and B London Catering.
