Dear Hillside Parents:

MAP testing is currently underway for second through fifth grades. These are benchmark test that are given three times per year to determine student growth in reading and math. Please encourage your children to do their best and make sure they are at school on time. We start the test as soon as students get to class to give them plenty of time to finish them.

Our kindergarten and first grade student will also be taking their last benchmark test starting April 15th. The Star test is used to determine growth in reading. We had very good results during our Winter test and expect lots of growth this time as well.

Our Student of the Month Assembly will be March 29th at 8:20 in the gym. All parents are welcome to attend. Spring Break is April 1st to the 5th. We are all hoping for sunny weather and a time for students to recharge for the last months of school. Hillside will be having Battle of the Books on April 19th this is a competition for selected fifth grade students. April 23rd is Kindergarten Orientation from 5:30 to 7:00. This is a time for new Kindergarten parents to ask questions and finish registration. Finally, the Student of the Moth Assembly in April is scheduled on the 26th at 8:20 in the gym.

Thank you,
David Young
