Ipad Insurance

Pad insurance is $25 per student. It may be paid through ParentVue or by sending check or cash to school with your scholar. We highly recommend this insurance. You never know when an accident is going to happen. If you have not paid the insurance then you will be responsible for the cost to fix or replace the iPad.

September Breakfast and lunch menu will be on Hillside's website as soon as it is provided to us

PurposeFull People character traits for our students of the month

September 2022

We are on our 2nd year of SEL/character curriculum, PurposeFull People by Character Strong. Each month, scholars will learn and practice a character trait. We would encourage our families to practice this trait at home too! During the month of September, our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate RESPECT. We will focus on using good manners, using kind language, being courteous to one another, resolving conflicts peacefully, and treating one another as we would want to be treated (and how they want to be treated!). Our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate respect. We encourage our families to practice this trait at home too!

Respect: seeing good in people and things (and treating them with care)

Think About It

Here are some questions to ask your child at home or talk about as a family:

K-2 What does “treat others the way you want to be treated” mean? What do “good manners” look like in our family? How does using good manners show respect? How do we already show respect at home? How can we do a better job showing respect as both kids and adults?

3-5 How does respect look, sound, and feel at school? How does respect look, sound, and feel at home? Do you have to like a person in order to be respectful? Or, can you be respectful to someone even if you don’t particularly care for or agree with them? Resolving conflict peacefully is part of being respectful. How can we show respect even when we disagree with someone?

HES PTO Meeting

Join our PTO Thursday, September 15th from 5:00-6:00 PM in the Hillside Library. We look forward to seeing you there.
