February 2017

Dear Hillview Families,

 To further promote character education and the district’s “Bully Proof Partnership,” Hillview will participate in the fourth annual districtwide “Day of Kindness” on February 14th.  Every LCSD school has generated a variety of special activities to celebrate this day.  Our HV Bully Proof Partnership Team, HV Building Planning Team and HV PTO have proudly planned a multitude of projects to celebrate the spectacular character that is exemplified at our school on a daily basis.  Last month, students, staff members and parents were asked to complete a school climate survey at each LCSD school.  We hope that you were able to participate.  The surveys will be processed by University at Buffalo personnel and then the data will be shared with the schools.  I look forward to reviewing the results with Hillview stakeholder groups when they are made available.

For the Day of Kindness, students and staff members will sign a kindness pledge which will be displayed near the gymnasium.  In addition, we will participate in several kindness service projects for our community: creating Valentine’s Day cards for local veterans and for the residents of St. Elizabeth’s Home, writing thank you notes to our bus drivers and decorating grocery bags with kind messages for the customers at Tops grocery store next door.  Our Good Citizens’ Club members will also present at a “Gift of the Month” assembly on February 16th.  Our “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully” or “Let Friendship Grow” t-shirts will be worn for that assembly.  In addition, our PTO will generously sponsor a good character assembly with The Hill Brothers on February 17th

On the evening of February 14th, the LCSD Bully Proof Partnership Team will host a “Day of Kindness Family Fun Night” at the LHS Field House.  The event begins at 5:30 PM, and the evening will include a variety of games, character-building activities, face-painting, pizza and more.  The cost per family is $5.00.  Tickets are available for purchase in our main office and at the door that evening.  It is always a really fun event!

Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy 100th Day of School!  Enjoy the mid-winter recess (February 20th-24th) with your family.  Spending time at the public library with lots of good books or at a museum with historical and scientific items to study would be perfect places to visit during the chilly, winter weather.
