** Special Note for 4th and 5th Grade Parents **:

Elementary Progress Reports for students in Grades K -3 are now posted in Home Access under the 'Grades' tab.

These cute cards were created with designs done by students at Alton Darby Elementary with the assistance of art teacher, Becky Bowers. They are blank on the inside…perfect for Holiday cards, thank-you cards, get well cards, etc.

You can purchase a set of 12 cards, including all four designs, for just $20! All proceeds benefit the Hilliard Education Foundation. Click HERE for ordering information.

The Hilliard Education Foundation supports and enhances the education of all Hilliard City Schools students, by soliciting, managing, and distributing funds for educational purposes and activities which may not otherwise be funded.

A Staff Wish Comes True

Each month, during a Board of Education meeting, Superintendent John Marschhausen grants a wish for a staff member. He has challenged staff to wish for things that can change lives, or changes how we do things in Hilliard. We have had wishes for healthy vending machines, little libraries outside the elementary buildings and to take students on field trips to the Ohio Statehouse. Here you read more and watch a short video on the fourth wish granted just last week.
