UPDATE: Mosaic Mural News
Very exciting news! The mural mosaic project is set to start in about 1 month and we are so close to our fundraising goal (about $1,000 more to go!).

Joshua Winer will be at Hillside working with the students to create the mural from April 28th until May 17th. Information on how parents can participate in helping students during class time will be emailed soon. Please consider volunteering your time to this exciting community project!

PTC Committee Chairs Needed
We still need a few more committee chairs! Jillian Erdos (Spring Fling lead Co-Chair) is looking for a Co-Chair to assist with this year's event as well as take the lead for next year. This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking to get involved, and those who want to dabble in Event Planning.
The committees and committee chairs are critical to the PTC. Without the very dedicated parents who volunteer, we would not be able to hold the many enrichment activities and community events sponsored by the PTC. Please contact either Amy Lam or Jessica Young if interested.
