From the Principal
I hope you are enjoying your weekend! It was incredible to welcome so many of you to our Bingo Night this past Friday evening. We are proud to share that over 400 guests joined us in support of our school and PTO! Nothing says husky spirit like a 100 kid conga line on a Friday night!
Thank you for all your support of our Penny Drive which concluded this past Friday. We are excited to turn those donations into actionable service learning for our students starting this week with our Bag Lunch Program.
I hope you all have a great week!
Hillendale Elementary Principal
Valentine's Day at HES
We are excited to celebrate Valentines Day at Hillendale this February! Students are welcome (but not required) to bring valentines to school as long as students have a valentine for each child in their class and as long as no edible treats are included. Individual teachers and grade levels may make more specific requests. We hope your huskies enjoy this tradition!

Drumroll…….Our school raised a total of $2,485.57 as counted by our students!!!
The classes with the three highest total donations were:
1st place - Mrs. O’Neil - $253.71
2nd place - Miss Marchetto - $245.89
3rd place - Mrs. Collins - $243.04
These classes will choose a special day in coordination with their teacher as a prize (e.g., pajama day).
All money collected will go to the Bagged Lunch Program, which provides lunches to SILO (an organization that feeds people in need throughout Southern Chester County). Over the next 6 weeks, each grade will take its turn packing the lunches.
Harlem Wizards are coming to UCF!
The Wizards game will feature some of Hillendale's own: Principal Leight, Miss Ricci, Mr. Picard, and Mr. Ricci will all be participating. Bring the whole family to cheer them on!
