April 2022

During the month of April, our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate honesty. We will focus on thinking and acting in a way that feels consistent, kind, and sincere. Additionally, we will talk about the cost of lying and what it does to our body and mind. We would encourage our families to practice this trait at home too!

Honesty: living truthfully in your words and actions and thoughts

Think About It

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

K-2 Sometimes, people cheat or do not play by the rules when they are playing a game. How do you think they feel if they win the game by cheating? Do you think it is better to cheat and win or be honest and lose? When is it most difficult for you to tell the truth?

3-5 How important is it to you that your friends are honest? When your friends are dishonest with you, how does it make you feel? What should you do about it? Being honest is an important part of being a person with integrity. Some people say that integrity means, “doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” What might it feel like to be a person with integrity

Every Friday is Husky Pride Day- Wear your Husky Shirts or blue!

Students who ride bikes need to bring a lock to lock them up on the bike rack

It's getting to be that time of year when lawns are taken care of again. We also need to keep a clear path for fire safety. We need all bikes to be kept on the bike rack out front every day. Please send a lock to school with your student so that they are kept secure. Remember to walk them on the sidewalk in front of the school, please.

Come support the Hillside PTO with this fun fundraiser on April 21st
