Hello Parents! Would you like to help our community? Here's how you can help!

As part of our 5th Grade Capstone Project, we are collecting money to help the community.

All kinds of coins, bills, and checks (make checks out to See Kids Dream) are acceptable.

Also, we will be collecting input from all of you to decide how to use the money we raise to help our community to become a better place.

Finally, we will decide how we can use this money to help our community.

Please consider donating change next week, November 16th - 20th. Thank you in advance for your support.

Scouting For Food

ADE Families,

Our Cub Scouts from Pack 483 are kicking off Scouting for Food Monday, November 16th-20th.

A grocery bag has been sent home with your student. Please consider donating a few non perishable items by placing them in the bag and your student can deposit the bag in the donation boxes at the ADE main entrance.

All donations will go to the Hilliard Food Pantry to be of help to those in need this holiday season right here in our community. Thank you for your consideration either way. Any questions please contact <>.

Thank you for your help with this!

Quality Profile Now Online

In October every resident of the Hilliard City School District should have received a copy of the 2015 Quality Profile in the mail. We now have the document posted on the front page our website for you to reference when needed. This gives us a chance to report to our parents and community members on how we are doing as a district. We welcome feedback on the Quality Profile, including what data you want to read about in future Quality Profiles.
