Dear Hillview Parents/Guardians,
Thank you to the PTO and to our Hillview families and staff members who worked so hard to support the fall fundraiser. These contributions directly impact our students and provide endless opportunities that enhance their academic experiences and social growth. Your continued support of our school’s fundraising efforts is greatly appreciated.
Throughout October, we began P.A.R.P. (Parents as Reading Partners). Research shows that reading with your child on a daily basis at home makes them stronger and more confident readers at school. The school also embraced our first set of “Gift of the Month” assemblies with a character education focus on kindness, caring and friendship. Two of our school mascots, Ella the Elephant and Max the Monkey, even joined the fun while students shared character trait connections about the gift of the month book, Stone Soup. I am sure that your child would love to tell you all about the book and its thoughtful message. In addition, students continue to earn “Shout Outs” for the character education bulletin board display in the main hallway on a daily basis, and we are extremely proud of them. Responsibility and honesty are the character traits for November and December.
A “Fusion Inside Out” assembly will take place on November 3rd with a focus on the big idea of gratitude, which is perfect as we approach the holiday season. Please have your child wear his/her blue Be a Buddy or Let Friendship Grow shirt that day. As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we will gratefully accept any non-perishable food donations for the Trinity Food Pantry. The food drive has begun and will run until the morning of Monday, November 20th.
We will remember our United States veterans and all they have sacrificed for our country during the month of November. At school, with the help of parent volunteers, we proudly share“Hillview’s Hallway of Heroes” to display photographs and information about the veterans we know and love.
Just a reminder: parent-teacher conferences take place on November 30th and December 1st. Please remember to stop by the Scholastic Book Fair in the gymnasium on those days. In addition, the short holiday break takes place on November 23rd and 24th. On behalf of Hillview, we wish all of our families a Happy Thanksgiving and a peaceful and prosperous November.
Mrs. Moeller Principal
