May 2022

During the month of May, our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate gratitude. We will learn that gratitude is a choice that we get to make over and over again on where we put our focus and that we can feel grateful even for tough or challenging things in our life. We would encourage our families to practice this trait at home too!

Gratitude: choosing to notice and appreciate things in our life, things in others, and things in the world.

Think About It

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

K-2 Why do you think that saying “thank you” is so important? Gratitude takes practice! What can we do as a family to work on expressing Gratitude more regularly to each other and those around us?

3-5 Who are the people that you’re grateful for? How do you currently express Gratitude? With your words, actions, or thoughts? How does it feel to give Gratitude? How do others respond to your Gratitude?

Our Students of the Month for April - Honesty

If you would like to receive more information about our PTO, please enter your information here.

With the weather warming up, here is a reminder of appropriate attire:

1. Flip Flops are NOT recommended to wear to school. They break easily & provide no protec-

tion for your child’s foot.

2. Blouses, tops, t-shirts and pants should fully cover students’ torso, midriff areas, and under-

garments. “Spaghetti” straps are NOT allowed.

3. High heels or platform sandals are not safe to wear during PE.

4. Shorts and skirts should be no higher than mid-thigh.

5. No undergarments should be visible.

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.
