A final THANK YOU to all of you who contributed to the Annual Dues & Challenge Drive! The final numbers are in and we raised over $17,500, which exceeded our goal!!!!
We are thrilled to be able to continue enhancing the Hillside curriculum with many engaging programs made possible by your generosity.
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.
If you are interested or want to learn more about any of these roles, please click on the buttons below:
We are collecting Box Tops for Education again this year. Collection sheets and a collection box for sheets/box tops are located at the PTC bulletin board near Lori's desk.
Classes will compete to collect the highest amount of Box Tops. The winning class will receive a POPSICLE PARTY!
What are Box Tops?
For those that are new to this... Box Tops for Education are available on a number of food and non-food brand boxes. For every UNEXPIRED intact Box Top we send in as a school community, the Box Tops for Education program will pay the PTC 10 cents... and those quickly add up. Our goal this year is to raise $1,000 in Box Tops funds!
Disclaimer: Please note that the Hillside PTC is not asking or encouraging that you purchase any of these products for the purposes of this contest. However, if you happen to purchase a product that has a Box Top, DON'T DISCARD THE BOX TOP :) We'll gladly take them.
Start saving those Box Tops now!!! Any questions, please contact our Box Tops Coordinator, Joyce McCafferty.
The Coffee Pond photographers will be at Hillside on Friday, October 13th to capture pictures of our K-5th-graders. They need our help to make sure all bows are in place, shirts are tucked in, and smiles are on those sweet little faces! Please consider volunteering for a block that day which hopefully coincides with your child's class. Thanks for your help!
