ADE Friday Update

Week 3 - Sept 8-11

ADC Field Day 2015 was AMAZING!

Our combined Field Day with Darby Creek Elementary was a huge success!

Special thanks to all of the volunteers, to Alton Darby PTO and Darby Creek PTO.

And a very special THANKS to Mr. Burkhart and Mr. Decker for planning and organizing this amazing event!

We want to PERSONALIZE Curriculum Night for YOU!

We are excited to provide you with an opportunity to learn more about a topic related to learning that you want to know more about through our Parent EdCamp Curriculum Night on Sept 16 from 5:30-7pm!

What is Parent EdCamp??

Parent Edcamp is an opportunity designed specifically for parents and their needs.

Our very first Parent EdCamp was a huge success last year and so we're back for another round.

Instead of a traditional Curriculum Night, you are helping us give you what you need to make this a successful year and partnership in your child's learning.

Take the survey and tell us what YOU need!

Our Annual Mumpkin Fundraiser ends September 8th. Delivery is scheduled for September 30th. Send your order to school with your child.

Thanks for supporting ADE PTO!

Updates and Info

INVEST in the Hilliard Way

Over the next two weeks the Get Connected Blog will feature a series from Superintendent John Marschhausen focusing on the Hilliard Way. Each day he will discuss how our culture drives what we do and why we do it. You can read the I.N.V.E.S.T series on our web page.

Cross Country Teams Demonstrate Culture of Leadership

In case you missed this story in the media this week you might want to take a look. A group of varsity runners on the Hilliard Darby cross country team have been working with a 7th grade runner at Heritage Middle School. It’s a tremendous story that shows what a culture of leadership we have in Hilliard. You can read the Columbus Dispatch story here, and watch the Channel 4 story here.

Free Parent iPad Classes

The Hilliard Technology Department will be offering free parent classes for those wanting to learn more about iPads and internet safety. More details will be posted in the coming weeks, but for now please save these dates. You can attend one or all, and it doesn't have to be where your child goes to school.
