Volunteer Reminders

As we get to the part of the year when we get to have the opportunity for field trips, we wanted to remind parents of some volunteer information to keep in mind:


— Volunteers are required to have a district volunteer badge. Click here for information about obtaining a volunteer badge: http://www.hilliardschools.org/schools/volunteer/


— Field trips are grade-level specific. Therefore arrangements need to be made for siblings or others in your care if volunteering.


Please contact the district office at (614) 921-7000 for more information about volunteering.

HCSD Events and Info

Technology Connections


Chief Technology Officer Rich Boettner wants to keep our community up to date on how our students and staff are using iPads as part of our One2One program. In his Technology Connections Blog you can find information on the program, read his blogs and watch videos of our students in action.

Hilliard Free Lunch Summer Camp


FUN, FRIENDS & a FREE nutritious lunch in the summer! Hilliard Free Lunch Summer Camp for Kids will have THREE Hilliard camp locations this summer. A healthy lunch is served daily through the USDA Summer Food Service Program. Camp is in session Monday through Friday June 15 - July 29 (closed July 4). To register for the camp please click here. Also, please share this information with your friends and on social media.



Honor a Teacher through HEF


Make a gift in honor of your favorite teacher and the Hilliard Education Foundation will send an e-card with your message of thanks to the teacher you’re honoring. All gifts will be matched up to $2,500 by KEMBA Financial Credit Union. Funds raised will help support classroom grants that enable our teachers and students to do more. This is a perfect way to thank a teacher through the end of the school year.


Online Flyer Connection


Be sure to check out this week’s Flyer Connection page. There is information on summer sports camps, academic summer camps and community 5k run/walks. In an effort to reduce clutter from our students’ backpacks, we are asking parents to click here on a regular basis.
