Happy Friday! We had a great first full week at Hillside! Today we held our first fire drill of the year. The children were wonderful. They exited the building quickly and quietly. As mandated by state law we will hold several more fire drills this fall.
Just a reminder that Back To School Nights are next week. Grades 3 & 4 are Tuesday, September 17th and Grades K, 1 & 2 are Thursday, September 19th. Both evenings will begin at 7:00pm with grade level presentations followed by time in classrooms. Specific grades will be presenting in the following areas so when you arrive, please go directly to the assigned area: Kindergarten - Cafe, 1st Grade - All Purpose Room, 2nd Grade - Small Gym, 3rd Grade - All Purpose Room, 4th Grade - Cafe. At 7:45pm, you will be invited to the All Purpose Room (big gym) for refreshments provided by the PTSA and have the opportunity to speak with special area teachers, and numerous community groups.
