Friends Of Hillside

                          Friends of Hillside Fundraiser for the 2017-2018 School Year

Year after year, parents of Hillside Elementary students have kindly donated to the Friends of Hillside Fundraiser (formerly the Hawky Campaign). These funds continue to be used for many different activities and items benefiting each and every student at the school. This year, the PTO will use this campaign as the primary fundraiser for Hillside.

We understand that it is sometimes hard as a parent to volunteer your time due to other obligations. Life gets so busy with work, kids, and activities that volunteering can become a burden. In order to reduce the need for some of the time-consuming fundraisers we’ve put on in previous years, the PTO this year is running the Friends of Hillside fundraiser to collect monetary donations from parents. Without this fundraiser and generous donations from parents, the Hillside PTO would lack sufficient funding for all of our great programs.

Each family that contributes to the Friends of Hillside fundraiser will be recognized in the Hillside PTO newsletter as a thank you for your generous donation..

Ball in the House! A Capella Group Will Rock Hillside! 

Ball in the House will perform for Hillside on Tuesday, November 14th, at 2:15 p.m. All grades are invited.

Ball in the House is five guys, five voices, that’s it. Taking a cappella to the next stage, with vocal drums/beatbox and vocal bass under lush harmonies, they create a sound that’s hard to believe. Following in the path of classic harmony groups like Boyz II Men, the Temptations, and Take 6, while incorporating the pop and neo-soul influence of artists like Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, and Pharrell Williams, Ball in the House moves audiences with their music.
