2015 Spring Calendar Raffle

The 2015 Spring Calendar Raffle is on! Its purpose is to help raise much needed funds to support the PTC-sponsored enrichment programs and to raffle off some fun items to our wonderful Hillside kids and families!

Raffle flyers went home with your student(s) on Monday 5/18. Remember to turn your tickets in before June 8th to have the best chance at winning a school day raffle prize.

For details about tickets, prizes and scheduled drawings please click here.

Any questions? Please contact Amy Lam and/or Robin Gamrath-Schauman.

School Tool Box -School Supply Kits- Sale begins MONDAY, June 1st!

Order your teacher approved school supply kits (no trying to track everything down yourself!) with home delivery! Order online and schedule your delivery date 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 the School Toolbox website and search for Hillside school!

If you have any questions contact Jessica Young.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Committee Chair/ Volunteer Openings

  • Welcome Committee: we are starting a Welcome Committee at Hillside to help families of incoming Kindergarteners and older children who are brand new to our school get to know our community. We would love to brainstorm some ideas for fun community-building activities and would value your input! We have our first official kick-off meeting on Tuesday June 16th at 8pm at Acapulcos. Come join us! Your role in the committee can be flexible to accommodate your schedule. Can't make it that night? No problem, we can keep you informed! If you are interested in participating please send an email to Allison Coburn.

  • Recruiting for the Hillside School Council: the Hillside School Council is seeking two parents to join the committee that sets educational goals for Hillside in accordance with statewide policies and standards. Led by Michael Kascak, the Hillside School Council is comprised of the principal, teachers, three parents and one community member. The Council meets monthly at Hillside after school hours. Parent council members serve for three years. Every school in Massachusetts is required by law to have a School Council. If you are interested in joining the Council, please contact Seema Meloni. If more than two parents are interested we will hold an open election.

  • UDA (Understanding Different Abilities): Come be a part of the team! We are looking for several volunteers to allow this special program to continue for years to come!!! Hillside students enjoy and remember UDA from year to year. The program provides the children with a positive experience that educates them about people who have disabilities. If you would like to volunteer or get more information about the program please contact Christine Shusterman or Michelle Hoffmeister.

  • Hillside-Elliot Basketball game co-chairs: Show your school spirit and help to organize this beloved tradition! We have a great committee, we just need someone to help organize them! For more information about this great event or to volunteer, please contact Seema Meloni.
