In an effort to educate children on the importance of making appropriate decisions, Hillside conducts a character pledge that follows the Pledge of Allegiance during morning announcements. The purpose of our character pledge is to create a common dialogue and consistent message that is delivered each day. Research has shown that such efforts have had a positive impact on school communities. Hillside's Character Pledge is as follows:
I am here to learn and grow.
Today, I promise to make good choices--both in class and at play.
I promise to do what is right and fair even when nobody else is there.
I will treat everyone with kindness and respect.
By doing this, I will help to make Hillside the best!
