No School on Monday 11/5 & Tuesday 11/6 - See you all on Wednesday!
Lt. Governor Calley Visit at Hilton Steam Center
Students from every grade level demonstrated activities that included coding, robotics, virtual reality, engineering, and 3D printing! They did a tremendous job. We could not be more proud of all that went on in the STEAM Center today and what happens every day here at Hilton.
The next meeting will be held on November 14 at 7pm in the STEAM Center. Child care and food will be provided. Please join us to offer your support, ideas, and most important, to make this an amazing year for our students.
Hilton Family Movie Night (November 16)
Doors open at 6:30, movie starts at 6:45
The first family movie night of the year will be held on November 16. Students will be voting on the Movie in their classrooms. The choices will be between Hotel Transylvania 3, Incredibles 2, Trolls and Sherlock Gnomes. This is a free movie night. Popcorn, water and candy will be available for purchase and the possibility of a gift basket raffle and a door prize! So come in your comfortable clothes (or PJs) and bring your blankets and pillows to enjoy this great family night out.
Popcorn Friday (November 30)
The next Popcorn Friday will be November 30th. For $0.25 (or a Toe Token) your child(ren) can purchase popcorn popped by Hilton’s parents during lunchtime. To volunteer, just visit https://www.myschoolanywhere.com/join.a5w.
Box Tops (November 30)
Please continue to collect box tops. The next deadline submission will be November 30. We will no longer be sending home Box Top Sheets. You can send them to school in a plastic bag with your child’s name and teachers name on it. In the past, money raised through this program financed the field trip transportation as well as granted up to $100 to each classroom for much needed supplies.
Hilton Hound Dog Apparel
The following websites are local businesses which now sell Hilton Hound Dog items. Please check them out. The Holidays will be here soon!
Finland & Fawn Boutique
*New* Artsonia Online Art Gallery
Everyone should have received an email to approve access to Artsonia. The artwork created by our students will be now uploaded to this new online art gallery. You will be able to view your child(ren)’s art online, share with others, create a fan club and order keepsakes. These could make the perfect Holiday gift. Volunteers are still in the process of uploading artwork to this new system. So please keep checking back. If you have not received an email for approval or have any questions, please contact your PTO at HiltonPTO@gmail.com
Hilton Recycling Program
Hilton receives money for recycled paper! There is a green dumpster outside the school located next to Hilton Road. Every Friday, Ms. Michael’s class collects recycled paper throughout the school and places it in the dumpster. You can donate too! But only paper please (no cardboard or phone books). It is an easy way for our school to earn money while teaching students how to protect the environment!
Hilton is now enrolled in the Kroger Rewards Program. Please support the school by linking us to your Kroger Rewards Card. Our number is 68151 or you can just type our school name in the search window at https://www.kroger.com/communityrewards
How fun would it be to shop, while at the same time, earning money for our school? Amazon Smile (https://smile.amazon.com) is through Amazon.com, in which they donate money for most items purchased through their website. The fun part is that the website keeps a running total on your account to see how much money you donate to the school just by shopping with them. Check out this 30 second video to see how you can add a shortcut to your (mobile) home screen to ensure all your Amazon purchases benefit Hilton Elementary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWgglu7ZCDE.
Coca Cola Give
Attention all Coca Cola drinkers! Another way to earn money for Hilton Elementary is through the Coca Cola Give Program. By collecting Coca Cola caps and codes, Hilton can earn money to purchase supplies for physical education, sports, technology and/or arts. Most Coca-Cola beverages that have a product code under its cap, or printed on its paper packaging, are eligible to be used for donation. Here is a link to the reference list of participating brands https://us.coca-cola.com/participating-brands. Please collect these clean items in a plastic bag and send to school with your child. There is a drawer in the office for collections.
If you are planning to volunteer at school at all this year, BAS requires a background check. Here is the link to get that done:
