CURRICULUM NIGHT IS MONDAY, NOV. 25th-PLEASE RSVP


Curriculum Night is Monday, November 25th, 6:30pm to 8:30pm at Hillside. This will be an opportunity for parents/caregivers to gain a better understanding of the Math and English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum used for our students. Teacher subject leads will explain how student's are taught, what materials are used, and the content available to students and parents at home to support in class learning. Parents/caregivers will have the opportunity to ask questions about in-class learning and the best approaches for homework. In addition, the middle school math options will be explained.

Please enter through Door K by the parking lot and proceed to check-in, in front of the Main Office. Refreshments will be served for adults and childcare will be available with goldfish and water snacks.

PLEASE RSVP HERE. Questions? Please contact Kimya Nilsen.
