Student, Parent and Community Involvement
- Parents and community members are welcome to be active participants at Hillside Elementary to assist in the education of all our children. Volunteers are visible daily at our school. This year students were able to participate in after school programs that increased their understanding of reading and math as well as technology club, running club and tutoring. The PTO hosted two Bingo nights for the Hillside Community and supported reading by funding Accelerated Reading program that encourages students to read for pleasure. Open House, grade level math and reading nights, monthly student awards assemblies, and author visits were well attended events at the school.
- Hillside Site Council has representation from parents, community members and teachers. This year we reviewed and approved the School Improvement plan and building budget.
- We have an active PTA that sponsors a membership drive at the begging of each school year. They received an award of two-thousand dollars for outstanding participation collecting box-tops. Funds raised from the PTA support classrooms, reading programs, technology and provide sports equipment for the playground.
