From the Principal
Happy "Day 100!" It is hard to believe that we are already past the midway point of the school year. Especially in our primary grades, Day 100 is a wonderful way to reflect on all the joy we have experienced together thus far this school year while also learning about place value and number sense.
If you have any questions about Valentine's Day, please see below and feel free to reach out to your child's teacher or me if you need any clarification.
All Hillendale students are welcome to join our staff in an Eagles Spirit Day this Friday, February 10th!
I hope you all have a great week!
Hillendale Elementary Principal
Winter Weather Attire
It is our intention to be outside for recess every school day. This includes on cold and damp weather days where warm clothing (coat, hat, gloves, etc.) is a necessity. Please dress your child with the expectation that they will be outside for a minimum of 25 minutes every school day. Additionally, muddy fields and wet slides are taking a toll on our stock of extra clothing in the nurse's office. If you happen to be "spring cleaning" a bit early, we are looking for donations of elastic waist athletic pants and leggings, especially in size 5 - adult small (boys & girls). If you have any questions about potential donations, please reach out to Mrs. Walter at email@example.com. We appreciate your partnership in helping all our huskies experience warm, dry outdoor physical activity every day!
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!
