PTA MEETING and MEMBERSHIP UPDATE

Our first PTA meeting was a huge success! Thanks to all who attended! We have an approved budget to help support as many different initiatives at our school as possible and we received great input on upcoming events and programs. Our next meeting is on November 14 at 7:30 pm. Please know that there are many ways to get involved, but we do hope you will consider being a dues paying member of the PTA. The dues go directly to making Hillside better for everyone in big and small ways. If you join before Oct 15 you are eligible for special thank you gifts and if you sign up to make a $5 monthly donation, you are entered to win a $50 Spirit Wear gift card.

KIDSTUFF COMING HOME

Check student backpacks for the KidStuff Coupon Book. This is a fantastic way to save money for your family and raise money for our school. To take advantage of the savings, please return $25 (with the option to purchase additional books). Using only a couple of the offers pays for the book! Don't want it? Just return it! Send your unused KidStuff Coupon Book to your homeroom teacher. The homeroom with the most books sold will be celebrated! If you have any questions, contact Kristina Drymalski.
