4th and 5th GRADE CYCLE 3 AESTHETICS/CI REGISTRATION

Registration forms have been re-posted on Hillside’s website in the “What’s Happening” section. If you have already registered your child, there is no reason to register them again. This is for families new to Hillside and any family who has not yet registered for Cycle 3.

HELP RAISE FUNDS FOR NEWSIES
Please help Hillside raise funds for this year’s musical Newsies! If you’ve ever been to a Hillside musical you know our students are incredibly talented! But quality productions are expensive. The money raised will go to fund the sets that were ruined in the flood and the broken soundboard among other expenses.
