Hello Hillside

Hello Hillside is a school-wide program designed to foster a sense of community within the school. The program is student-run (usually, by fifth-graders), and includes birthday celebrations, important classroom and school announcements, and highlights of classroom work. All students, faculty, and staff attend. Parents are welcome to attend, and asked to please sit in the chairs on the outer edge of the gym circle, thereby allowing faculty and staff to sit closest to their students.

Hillside Learning Fair

The Hillside Learning Fair involves students sharing their knowledge with the Hillside community on a variety of topics from hot sauce to how the human heart beats.

Walking School Bus

 Enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise at the start of the school day! The Walking School Bus can "pick-up" your child along with a group of 6-8 other children and get them safely to school under adult supervision. All students can participate in this program, even students that live far from Hillside. The program runs on Wednesday mornings in October and May. For more information contact the PTO at
