Principal's Thoughts

Dear Page Hilltop Families:


We are heading into the last few days of October. This month passed so quickly! Before we head into November, we have two school events/activities left: the Literacy Live parade on Monday @ 2:00 pm and the opening of our Page Hilltop Pumpkin Patch.


All PH families are invited to view the parade. You may park your vehicles and find a good standing spot by the Washington Street grounds, the lower gym parking lot, or the grassy areas by the PH entrance.


You are also encouraged to check out our wonderful pumpkin patch. The students and staff have come up with some amazing pumpkin creations. Check out some of these decorated pumpkins. The rest of them will be in the patch on Monday.


Thanks, as always, for sharing your children with us!


Fred Deppe, Principal

Matt Lutinski, Assistant Principal
