The PTC depends very heavily on parent volunteerism. We are fortunate to have many very dedicated parents who step up each year to run committees, but we are always looking for more help! Below are some great volunteer opportunities we hope you will consider.
Do you remember what it was like to be a new family at Hillside? Are you interested in welcoming new families to Hillside? Do you love our community and want to share your knowledge about it with those just starting out? Volunteer to be a buddy family! Our Welcome Committee is seeking existing families who would be willing to be paired with a new family over the summer. Reach out via email, perhaps meet up at a playground to introduce yourselves, and generally be available to answer any questions a new family may have. If you are interested please email Sarah Docktor and Julie Hand.
Samantha Shapiro would love to have a co-chair next year to help her work with students to put together the Hillside Yearbook for 2018-19. This is creative and very rewarding work!! Email Samantha and Meg if you are interested.
Online ordering for teacher-approved school supply kits is OPEN! Order online through School Toolbox and schedule your delivery date to your home for anytime this summer! No need to worry about the back to school rush! Not only is this a quick and easy way to get all of your school supplies but a portion of the proceeds benefit Hillside School! This program is being offered to rising 1st through 5th graders. (Rising kindergarteners will receive a separate letter this summer from their teacher.) No need to know which teacher you have next year - each grade level has a pre-built school supply box already loaded on the school toolbox site - so you can one-click order all your teacher approved supplies! You can also order additional supplies for your home or other siblings not at Hillside! Go to School Toolbox and search for Hillside School!
If you have any questions email Jessica Young.
Consider the Hillside Gift Book program. For a $15 donation that goes directly to the Hillside Media Center, you can get a personalized name plate placed into a specially selected book in the Hillside Media Center. Imagine the look of delight when your child or other honoree sees their name in the front cover of the book!
