Looking for something to do during Winter Conferences? Join the Hillside PTO for an Ice Skating Social on Thursday, March 2nd from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
Mark your calendars for the Hillside Parent Social, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 18, 2017, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Berwyn Tavern, located at 625 Lancaster Avenue.
The PTO Social Committee has been busy planning a great evening called Shamrock Shenanigans.
It’s a fun night to meet up with other Hillside parents and raise money for our school. Watch for details on how to register online to view and bid on the Parent Social Shamrock Auction directly from your phone. You do not need to be at the Parent Social to bid online, however, Hillside exclusive items and teacher experience items will only be available the night of the social.
The school board voted on 1/23/17 unanimously on the resolution that the T/E School District opposes the legislation to eliminate school property taxes. This very same Senate Bill 76 was defeated by one vote in 2015 and will likely come to the floor again this year. The District is looking to make as many parents and community members aware of this legislation and encourages resident involvement in opposing this legislation. For details see the TESD Legislative Alert on the District website. Any questions can be directed to Dr. Wendy Towle, Ad Hoc Legislative Committee Administrative Liaison, (610) 240-1903.
