Flamingo Flocking Fundraising

Is it spring yet? Flamingo Flocking Fever has hit Hillside! Yes, those Pepto pink birds will be landing in a Hillside neighborhood near you in early spring. What a great way to shake off the winter chill and laugh a little with our kids, friends, and neighbors. Flocking orders will be taken March 5th through 16th. The flocks will arrive in early April after spring break. Each flock will stay on the lawn for one day and then “migrate” to its next location. Click here for more details and get the flock insurance from here.

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.

TE All-Call Reminder

When serious weather conditions or other emergencies make it necessary to close or delay the opening of schools, announcements will be made on the TE All-Call Mass Communication System, the TESD website, the T/E Information Hotline—(610) 240-1970, T/E TV on Comcast Cable Channel 14 and Verizon Channel 20, as well as on local television stations. Parents are encouraged to establish emergency procedures with their children ahead of time to prepare for early school closings.

Automated phone calls, text messages, and emails will be sent to parents through the TE All-Call system, powered by SchoolMessenger.
