Please consider donating to the scholarship program, to help us cover the free class offered to scholarship recipients. We want all Hillside students to be able to participate in Explorers.

PARENT AND STAFF CORNHOLE/KICKBALL CLASSIC

Mark your calendars for fun! The Hillside PTA is excited to announce its first ever Parent and Staff Cornhole/Kickball Classic. The event will take place on Sunday afternoon, October 6th at the Wally Choice Community Center in Glenfield Park. You do not have to play cornhole or kickball to join in the fun! The idea is to come together as a school community to get to know each other a little better and have some laughs. Wally Choice Community Center is BYO and alcohol is permitted. Kids are also totally welcome to cheer on their teachers and parents or just run around the playground. More details to follow soon, but be sure to save the date.

SHOW YOUR SCHOOL SPIRIT-GET YOUR HILLSIDE SWAG

It’s that time of year again to get your Hillside swag on! Hillside Spirit Wear can be purchased anytime, anywhere at our online store: www.hillsideeagles.com. We will also have apparel and merchandise for sale at the following events: Back-to-School Picnic and Back-to-School night. Come on out and show your Hillside spirit!

JOIN THE HILLSIDE PTA FACEBOOK GROUP


The Hillside PTA has started a NEW Closed Facebook Group where they will post important information about events, registration deadlines, and volunteer opportunities and will also keep you up to date on the daily school schedule (a.k.a. the “A” day and “B” day schedule). You can join the group here
