Dear Hillview Families,
We are so thrilled that spring is finally here. As you know, March was a very busy month at Hillview. We cherished making memories at the Talent Show and Hobby Night. There is no question that our students are talented, shining stars! In addition, the Hillview Spring Carnival was a fun and memorable event for all of our students. Looking ahead, we are in the process of preparing for the Art Show, Reading Celebration and Scholastic Book Fair on April 19 from 6:00-7:30 PM. This special book sale is a “buy one, get one” event! Every student will have inspiring art work displayed at the Art Show. This art-enriched and literacy-focused school community gathering is a great time for all ages. Fortunately, all classrooms will have an opportunity to visit the book fair during the school day on April 20 in the LMC, and many exciting reading activities for our students will take place each day throughout that week at school.
Safety continues to be a top priority every day. During daytime performances, including the Talent Show, third grade concerts, school plays, etc., visitors will only be able to attend the evening performances. We also have a very large school population, so available auditorium seating is a priority for the students and supervising staff members. All visitors are adjusting well to our safety policy changes. We appreciate that every visitor brings his/her government-issued photo identification to Hillview. We also ask that all student helpers from other schools bring their Lancaster Central School District-issued photo identification when they are volunteering at our school.
It is our hope that the spring season brings warmth, sunshine and many fascinating learning experiences at Hillview and at home. We hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable spring recess (March 30–April 6). Everyone is looking forward to enjoying the outdoors and nature, along with reading some good books over the break!
