After-School Sports at Hillside Elementary for Grades 2, 3, 4

Hillside Elementary will be offering an intramural after-school sports program for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students. The program will begin on January 7th and end on May 2nd. It will be held from 3:15 to 4:30 p.m. on a different day for students in each grade.
  • Tuesdays for 2nd grade with Mr. Hauer
  • Wednesdays for 3rd grade with Mr. Hauer
  • Thursdays for 4th grade with Mr. Hauer

The program will be divided into two sessions, each approximately six weeks long. Session 1 will run from the week of January 6th through the week of February 11th. Session 2 will run from the week of March 16th through the week of April 27th. If the day assigned to a grade needs to change for session 2, advance notice will be given. Any 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade student who wishes to participate may do so for one session. Spots will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. Once the first session fills up, we will start the list for the second session. An email will be sent out letting each participant know which session they have been assigned to participate in.

Participating students will need a ride home. The school district cannot supply transportation for this activity, so children and parents will have to arrange their own transportation. Students must be picked up promptly at 4:30 p.m.

See attached flyer for more details.

Would Your Child Be Interested in a Robotics Club at HES? Please Complete Survey

The Hillside PTO, in collaboration with some Hillside teachers, is proposing a new Robotics Club for 1st through 4th graders. In order to ensure success of the program, we need to hear from you! Please complete this brief survey:

If you would prefer to complete the survey by hand, plead do so and return it with your child as soon as possible. All results will be collected and presented to the PTO Board for review.

Due to space and resources, we are proposing that the club have two groups, one for 1st/2nd grade and a second for 3rd/4th grade. The maximum size would be 20 students per group, with a cost of $120 per child.
