September 5th, 2017


We hope everyone had a terrific summer and is looking forward a great start to the new school year. Our first Hillside Weekly News is full of information, volunteer opportunities and upcoming events during the month of September to get new and returning Hillside families off to a terrific start.

We’ll be sending this Hillside Weekly News every Tuesday. This email is prepared by the PTA in coordination with Dr. Anglin and will include key dates and upcoming registration deadlines for school-based events as well as PTA fundraisers and activities. Please contact us with any questions.

A few reminders:

-Start following the Hillside PTA Facebook Page. We also put key dates there and remind people if it is an “A” day or a “B” designated day for scheduling purposes.

-We rely on families throughout the year to volunteer. Currently, we're looking for a few volunteers for back-to-school events, and to serve as Classroom Liaisons to help organize the families in their student’s homerooms throughout the year. You can sign up here with the Sign Up Genius .

-Dr. Anglin sent important information about arrival and dismissals for the first two days of school. Please refer to her letter sent on August 30.

-Calling all Fathers and Father Figures on the first day of school! Welcome students and join the group to cheer for our students. Arrive 8:45 am on the front lawn. See the letter shared by Dr. Anglin in her email on August 30 for more details.

-Basic school supply lists are available on the Hillside School homepage.
