Week 0 - 9/2/22

A Note from the Principal’s Desk - 9.2.22


Dear Hillside Parents/Caregivers:

Our WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL CELEBRATION will take place on Tuesday, September 6th at 9:00am. This event is modeled after back to school programs where groups of parents line the school entranceway to cheer and encourage students on the first day of school. We are working with a group of community leaders to create an exciting opening day for Hillside Elementary School.  We know that many will be on their way to work that day and we ask you to come dressed for work. We want to show our children that families from every work life recognize and support the importance of education. Join us for the fun!


Upon arriving to school, you must know your homeroom teachers name and room number.

Homeroom numbers 001 & 002 – Ground Floor

Homeroom numbers beginning with 100 – 1st Floor

Homeroom numbers beginning with 200 – 2nd Floor

It was so wonderful to see so many new families and returning ones at our school tours and ice cream social this week. We can’t wait for everyone to join us Tuesday for opening day.

Don’t forget to join the PTA Facebook page. You can find us at Hillside Elementary School – Montclair, NJThere’s also a Hillside Elementary Parents and Caregivers Forum on Facebook where you can crowdsource information from other parents.

From SpiritWear sales to School Tours and Parent Liaisons to Publicity, it takes an enormous village to fill up that school calendar. Join us!

Who are we? The School Action Team for Partnerships (SATP) is a school body devoted to supporting the Hillside Elementary School mission. We are a collective of diverse voices. We are families, teachers, community partners and students who work together to make school programs, instruction and activities fun and informative for all.

Some examples of initiatives we work on during the school year are Hispanic-Latino Celebration, Kwanzaa Celebration, Hillside Cares Coat Drive, and Bullying Prevention. We would love to recruit some new faces for the upcoming school year. It takes a team to make things happen. Interested in helping? Email us at [email protected].
