December Astro Message
Dream big. Reach for the Stars. Together we achieve success!
Please see the announcement below about the date change for our all-school music concert. Mrs. Pratt is back from her maternity leave and getting the students ready to perform. It will be a fun evening. There are many events listed below that are happening here and around the community. I hope you have a chance to get out and enjoy them.
With the snowflakes starting to fall, make sure you know how to get information about school closures. Here's the link to the Hillsboro School District website information.

An impressive display of talent!

Language Arts Adoption Update
On Monday, December 16, the District will host an open house where families can preview materials from our Language Arts Adoption. This will be an opportunity to look at bilingual materials from two major publishers as well as the technology and SPED supports they provide in the classroom. The open house will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Event Room at the Brookwood Library, 2850 NE Brookwood Pkwy. We encourage families to take advantage of the open house and provide input on how to best serve and support our students in literacy.
Online Verification Window Extended to December 31
All parents are asked to review and update information we have for their family in our student information system through ParentVUE between Oct. 21 and Dec.31. This Online Verification takes the place of paper verification that has typically occurred in the fall of each year. It is extremely important for families to verify that their family and student information is correct and up to date. Having accurate contact information for parents is critical for communicating school and district news, as well as attendance and emergency notifications. Even if nothing has changed for your family, it is still critical that families verify that the records we have are accurate and up to date. The Online Verification process is quick and easy.
Detailed instructions for how to update your records through the OnlineVerification process may be found HERE. If you don’t have a ParentVUE account or have difficulty completing the online verification process, please request assistance from the office staff at your student’s school.
