Hillside Elementary PTO


Giving Tuesday....
Thank you for all of your support already this school year. As I mentioned previously, with all the provisions and restrictions this year for our current state of affairs I felt it best to keep everyone safe, as much fun as it is to shop and provide for our families in need this holiday season this way I see best -
For safety reasons, I have decided to just do a gift card drive this year rather than shop for specific wish list items. We would like to offer each family the following - grocery gift card and store gift cards for the family (which includes all children under the age of 18) gift cards of their choosing. I sent out a form asking what type of gift cards the parents would like to have to shop for their family. You are always welcome, if you wish, to purchase an item for families as well, I am not discouraging this, but making the best effort to keep everyone healthy.
Below is the link to the HILLSIDE ES Sign-Up Genius. If you are able to help, please take a look at the requests. I have broken down the requests by family numbers.
***Please as in the past list your family number on your gift item.***
There are several ways we can handle delivery of the gift cards:
You are welcome to send them direct to me: 19060 Arroyo Ter Leesburg, VA 20176
You are welcome to either Venmo or Paypal the amount you wish, and I will happily go purchase the gift card. Please reach out to me for my Venmo or Paypal information.
You are welcome to drop items off direct to my home.
If need be, I can pick up items direct from you with no person to person direct contact.
**Please have items in no later than Wednesday, December 16th**
**Gift Cards may be any domination you wish to donate**
Please contact me if you have any questions my email - [email protected] or on my Cell Ph 714-768-5070 (text message is best)
This will be sent out to our school Neighborhood Needs Network via email, Sign-Up Genius and posted on all of the neighborhood social media platforms, so you will probably be seeing it a lot in the coming days.
Please let me know if you have any questions. And thank you again so much for your ongoing support.
Mrs Aubel will be handing our Kids Heart Challenge prizes from last February’s event for though’s that participated. Please stop by to pick them up Tomorrow during the instructional materials distribution.
The Specialists are excited to see our students (virtually of course). Please checkout our video to see your Specials teachers.
Thank you so much for the gift card - we have the BEST PTO ever! You are always there to support us and I am so appreciative for everything that you do for us and our students. 😊
It’s that time of year for the Original Works art fundraiser! Students have worked hard on an art project in school which they can have printed on different things (mugs, notebooks, magnets, etc.). The artwork and the Original Works packet will be coming home tomorrow in your child's Thursday folder. If you want to order something, please return your child's artwork, completed order form, and payment by March 26th.

I received an email last night regarding the change in the 5th Grade school supplies. I already purchased the school supply kit. Could you let me know how I go about ensuring my son has the corrected supplies? Thank you.

We engage, enrich and extend educational experiences in a supportive learning environment to strengthen our community of students, parents and staff.

We're asking that at least 2 parents from each class volunteer to decorate their child's teacher's classroom door. We're also seeking volunteers to decorate the specialists' doors. Resource teachers are assigned to a grade so ideally, a parent from that grade will volunteer for the Resource specialist.

If your class already has volunteers, please consider decorating a specialist's door or one of the teachers without a volunteer (which is noted on the sign-up). If volunteers do not sign up, Care and Share will provide generic posters to cover the doors that do not have volunteers so that all doors are decorated in some fashion.

Use the link below to sign-up as a volunteer.

Make your input known!

Every year, Hillside asks for parent input regarding the class placement of students who are returning to Hillside for the upcoming school year. Teachers and administrators meet near the end of each school year to develop tentative class lists based upon available information in each child’s academic record and teacher input about each student’s learning needs. Developing class lists aims to create cohesive cohorts of students at every grade level who can function and learn together in a positive classroom environment. We try to create a balance of race, gender, and academic needs in each class where students are with peers with whom they can collaboratively learn together.

See Mr Mill's emails for the survey link or click here. The survey closes April 30.



Teachers will be putting your child's artwork and the Original Works ordering forms in your child's take home folder Wednesday through Friday.

Make sure you check out their art even if you don't plan on ordering anything! They worked hard on it!

Original Works fundraising information has been sent home. Look for the flyer in your child's backpack for ordering information.
