LEARN ABOUT OUR NEW SCIENCE PROGRAM - PARENT NIGHT JAN 31 6:30 - 8 PM

Hillside is working hard to create the next generation of scientists -- from replacing textbooks with hands-on experimentation, to teaching kids about new developments and careers in science and technology. Come learn about the new science program called FOSS with a hands - on experiment. You’ll also learn about the reimagined ‘Science Day’ and what you can do to give your kids a turbocharged boost into scientific learning. Program will take place 6:30 to 8 pm on Jan. 31 in the Hillside cafeteria.

Complimentary childcare will be provided. We created a SignUp Genius to help us prepare activities for your children. It is not mandatory to sign up in advance, but it is helpful, so please sign up here.

Who needs knitting needles when you have 10 wonderful fingers! Finger knitting uses the same technique as traditional knitting, but without any challenging needles to worry about. Make a beautiful infinity scarf for Valentine's Day, or just make something for yourself. We provide the yarn and your kids provide their fingers for this one hour, after school workshop from 3:50 to 4:50 pm. Ali Sherwin is a Hillside mom who is excited to share her skills.
