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.

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.

Hillside Staff Parking Lot Reminder
This is a friendly reminder regarding the use of Hillside’s Staff Parking Lot. Parking in the lot is not permitted due to the lack of available parking spaces for Hillside’s staff. Please refrain from parking in the lot if you are dropping students off for the YMCA Before Care Program. Please do not use the lot during the school day if you are arriving to pick up your child early. Street parking is always available on Saint Luke’s Place.
