From the Principal
I hope that your huskies enjoyed our Student Wellness Day this past Thursday and Clean Up Day on Friday! A special thank you to all the families that helped make both special events possible. We are so grateful for your partnership and all the time and energy you give to all of us at Hillendale!
With the PSSA starting tomorrow (Monday, 4/24) for our 3rd - 5th graders, please take some time to review the email I shared with you all on 3/27 regarding the PSSA and feel free to reach out with any questions you might have.
I look forward to seeing many of you at our "Party for the Pavilion" this Friday evening! See below for more information and for links to our PTO's online auction that evening.
Have a great week!

Call for Patton Career Fair Participants
On Friday, May 26th (8am-11am), Patton Middle School will be hosting a Career Fair for our 7th grade students. We are looking for parent and community volunteers from various professional and technical careers to speak to our students about their chosen career paths.
The goal of this event is to expose our students to the variety of careers that exist, and to get them thinking about what careers they may be interested in exploring further. This event also serves as part of our K-12 programming to meet the PA standards for Career Education and Work.
If you are interested in participating in the career fair please fill out this form. All interested volunteers will be sent more information regarding the day. If you need more information or have questions, please contact Cara Malone, the 7th grade School Counselor, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-347-2000 ext. 3825.
