Breakfast/Lunch Menu for February

PurposeFull People Social Emotional Learning

February 2022

During the month of February, our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate kindness. We will focus on how to be kind to ourselves, to our environment, to animals, and to one another. We would encourage our families to practice this trait at home too!

Kindness: the choice to act with words, gifts, or actions to bring appreciation, positivity, and encouragement to others and yourself.

Think About It

Here are some questions to ask your child at home or talk about as a family:

K-2 What does kindness look like in our home? What does it look like in our neighborhood? Why is it important to show Kindness to people who aren’t kind to you? What acts of kindness have others shown you lately and how did you respond? How did it make you feel? How do random acts of kindness help you grow?

3-5 In our family, give examples of how we show kindness to others? How can we bring even more kindness into our home? Some people say that the most genuine act of kindness is done when no one else is looking. What do you think that means? Can you think of any ways to show genuine Kindness? When are times that it’s difficult for you to show kindness? What helps you practice kindness even if it’s difficult?

Every Friday is Husky Pride Day- Wear your Husky Shirts or blue!

Names in coats and lunch boxes

Please remember to put your student's name in coats and lunch boxes. Our lost and found is filling up fast and we have no way to get them back to the owners.

School Hours

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday- 8:30-3:15

Wednesdays 8:30-1:55

Please DO NOT drop off your student before 8:25, as there is no supervision outside until this time.

Ipad Insurance information

Does your student have Ipad insurance? Just $25 per year covers many oopsies that could be very expensive. This can be paid in the office by cash/check or ParentVue by Credit/Debit.
