Dear Hillside Families:

I would like to thank the teachers and students that participated at our Martin Luther King Jr. assembly. We had an excellent parent turn-out as well. I am always please with the talented students that are willing to share songs and remind us why we celebrate MLK. The slide-show of kindergarten work was also a nice surprise.

This month we have several events at the school. On January 29th the 5th grade has a Living History Museum in the gym. Students will dress up as famous people and tell about their lives and accomplishments. January 30th is Math Night from 5:30 to 7:00. This will be a fun event for parents and students. Students must be accompanied by a parent to all after school events. Our Student of the Month Assembly will be January 31 starting at 8:30 in the gym.

Attendance Matters: This is the time of year when winter weather and children’s illnesses can take a toll on school attendance. It’s important to get your children to school every day possible. Absences, even if they are excused can add up to academic trouble. This is true whether students are in kindergartener or high school. Children who miss too much school in kindergarten are less likely to read well by third grade. By middle school, absenteeism can predict who will graduate from high school. On Time, Every Day, All Day!

Thank you,

David Young
