January 2017


Dear Hillview Families,

 Happy New Year!  Our Hillview family hopes that your family had a memorable, peaceful and relaxing holiday season and winter recess.  December was such a fun and magical month.  It was filled with enjoyable, festive and humorous events for Hillview students, staff members and families.  Looking ahead, many great things are planned for 2017. 

The next general PTO meeting will be on Tuesday, January 10th at 6:30 PM in the library media center. 

Our third grade winter concert is scheduled for 2:00 PM (student assembly) and 7:00 PM on Wednesday, January 18th.  Under Mrs. Shamrock’s guidance and leadership, the third graders have worked very hard to prepare for this culmination of musical talent.  Everyone is looking forward to the show!  In addition, we have a spirit day (pajama day) on January 27th.  This is Reorganization Day, and it is a half day with dismissal at 11:30 am.  Lunch will not be served that day.

The school district recently accepted a check from the Hillview PTO so that a second playground can be added near the end of the first wing.  All of your fundraising and PTO support assisted with this ongoing initiative over the past four years.  All Hillview students and families, along with the Lancaster community, will benefit from the new playground, which will be geared for kindergarteners and first graders.  The playground installation will take place with the capital project work this summer.

I had a nice opportunity to meet with the new school resource officer (SRO), Mr. Bill Loewer.  Officer Loewer will be replacing Officer Formato, who retired last month.   Officer Loewer will visit Hillview on most Mondays and offer mentoring support for students as needed.

Best wishes to all for a happy and healthy 2017!
