Two Key PTO Leadership Positions That Need to Be Filled

Two Key PTO Leadership Positions to Fill

Hillside PTO has two key leadership positions available for 2018-2019. Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out to volunteer! We have filled many of our positions for next year, but we still need two additional volunteers to join our board. The remaining available positions are president and vice president of membership and school services. Please consider joining our collaborative, dynamic, and fun PTO Board. Both positions allow you to shape and vote to approve next year’s PTO agenda. Please contact Natalie Hoffmann to volunteer or ask questions.

Thank You from Book Fair Committee

Our book fair was a huge success this spring! The planning committee would like to thank everyone who shopped with us and, especially, those who volunteered their time to help. Because of you, Hillside kids had a blast picking out their favorite books, and our teachers received $750 in new titles.
Through our Book Fair Change Challenge and Scholastic’s dollar matching program, Hillside has raised $2400 to buy books for children in need this year. Way to go Hillside!!

WE NEED YOU TO MAKE THESE BASKETS A SUCCESS! This fundraiser is critical to ensuring our budget is met and we can fund our Theme Week Cultural Arts program in May.

New Pennsylvania Immunization Requirements Go Into Effect August 1, 2017

Beginning August 1, 2017, parents will have a significantly shorter time frame to provide proof of vaccination, due to changes in school immunization regulations by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Previously, families may have had up to 8 months to provide proof of immunization. The new regulations require families to provide proof of immunization on or before the first day of school or risk their child’s exclusion. The new regulations are intended to ensure that children attending school are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of preventable diseases.

To accommodate this change, the deadline for submissions for items to be included in the upcoming week’s Highlights likewise shifts to Tuesdays at 5 p.m. To submit an item for inclusion in the newsletter, please complete this form.
