Hillsdale Herons PTO


Is there a back to school night tomorrow night?
Is there a way to order online through the book fair? My son went tonight, but they were sold out of what we was looking for.
Did I miss info on this week's schedule of appreciation? I had no idea it was bring a flower day.
A huge THANK YOU to all of our wonderful parents who donated food to our staff appreciation breakfast and smoothie bar today! It was a huge hit! 🏝
If anyone can help with this we'd really appreciate it!
Hi friends! We need YOUR help getting these recess duty shifts filled for our teachers for teacher appreciation week! They'd love the entire week OFF duty! Please sign up if you can! Some of them just require you to be there for 15 minutes before school starts! You can do that RIGHT? ;)
Are candy grams available for Valentine's day this year?
Do you know when the 100th day of school is?
I recently signed my daughter up for this , and we need more girls at Hillsdale to sign up!
Thank you Hillsdale PTO! You have done an amazing job this year and tonight's carnival was a big hit! It's been a wild first year and you all have rolled with the punches and made so many things happen. 👍😍
These Silent Auction Baskets are AMAZING!! Come check them out at the carnival next Thursday May 25th!!

The mission of the Hillsdale Herons PTO is to support the amazing teachers and students of Hillsdale

A double kiss for that cute little pig! Thank you Officer Bridges and Mrs. Deatrick for being such good sports and giving a Shaka to everyone out there for their support of our event! Between your coins and Farmstead attendance, we raised $1,718 to send to King Kamehameha III Elementary School!!! We can’t wait to send that check off to support the school, staff and students. Thanks Hillsdale families for being so generous ❤️❤️❤️


Tonight’s the night - Farmstead! Mrs. Deatrick and Officer Bridges were within a few dollars of each other and have BOTH agreed to Kiss the Pig! Come out between 4pm-8pm to enjoy the activities and Kiss the Pig will be at 7:30pm.

With your coins donations we raised $1,300 to send to King Kamehameha III Elementary School! The money raised tonight at Farmstead will also be included in that so make sure to mention Hillsdale Elementary when purchasing your tickets tonight!


Tomorrow is the last day to bring in/ donate coins to find out who will Kiss The Pig Thursday out at Farmstead! Don’t forget all of our proceeds from both events will be donated to King Kamehameha III Elementary in Maui. Our very own Mrs. Deatrick gives us such a great insight and understanding about the Lahaina community and where the funds will go to support the school and students ❤️


Happy Monday families! This Thursday is our night out at Farmstead! All the info is on the flyer. Don’t forget to mention Hillsdale Elementary so we get credit! We hope to see you there 🎃🐷

Happy parent teacher conference time! The PTO provided Costa Vida for staff dinner tonight!

And those piggy jars are ready for your coins! We also have a Venmo page if you’d like to donate that way. Just make sure you put down the teacher your donations are going towards! We are accepting donations until the end of the school day Wednesday 10/18! Reminder: all proceeds are going to support King Kamehameha III Elementary School ❤️

Some facts about our proceeds donation: Mrs. Deatrick taught at King Kamehameha III Elementary School for 10 years and is still in close contact with her former coworkers. The school was sadly completely destroyed in the fires. Many of the students not only lost their school but also their homes. All money raised will go directly to rebuilding and benefiting students!!!


1..2..3..4..we declare a PENNY WAR!!! Kiss the Pig is back with 22 staff members ready to pucker up on our Farmstead night happening at 7:30pm on October 19th! The staff member with the most change will Kiss the Pig 😘🐷

This year we’re giving back to a fellow elementary school in need! Our very own Mrs. Deatrick taught at King Kamehameha III Elementary in Lahaina that was devastated by the Maui fires. All proceeds from the penny wars and Farmstead night will be donated to the school to help support their students! So clean out your car, look under the couch cushions and check your dryers for coins 💰Jars are out on a table by the staff pictures and ready for donations!

Happy Monday families! We’re starting to get prepped for the Fun Run! Student shirts have been counted and sorted and teacher shirts look amazing ☺️ More updates coming later in the week. Don’t forget tomorrow is picture day and no school on Wednesday!


We are happy to announce that our annual Fun Run is back and will be kicking off September 25th! This is our BIGGEST fundraiser of the year and so much fun for our students!

The Fun Run itself will be on Friday Oct. 6th. 🏃‍♀️🏃The schedule for grade levels and more info coming soon!


Happy Tuesday Hillsdale families! We’d like to invite you to our first family event of the year happening Friday September 29th from 5:30-7:00 at the Hillsdale park!

We will draw one students name per grade level for a $25 gift card 😃Hope to see you there!!!


The first Hillsdale PTO meeting of the year is tomorrow at 7:00 in the school library! If you can’t make it you can also join via teams. These meetings, especially this first one, are a great way to see what is happening at the school and where/how the funds are being spent throughout the year. It’s you as parents that are making these events, field trips etc happen via fundraising, donations etc. so why not see how it’s being spent. You don’t have to join the PTO or pay dues to be involved! Hope to see you tomorrow!


We’ve been getting some questions about tomorrow night!


Happy Tuesday Herons families! Hope everyone is finding their flow as we are now back in full swing with the school year. Here’s a list of upcoming events including a new this year PTO sponsored event at the end of September! More details to come. Don’t forget back to school night is Thursday night and our first PTO meeting if the year will be next week!

Happy Friday Hillsdale families! Hope your students had a great first week back! The PTO started the year off by treating staff to breakfast this morning! Mark your calendars for our first PTO meeting Thursday Sept. 7th at 7pm in the library to see how you can help support our amazing staff and students this year ☺️


Hope everyone had a great teacher/staff Meet and Greet! Tomorrow is the day!

So let’s talk parking! I’m sure you could all see from last night how busy it can get around the school. For the safety of all families, you will see in red on the map where there are NO PARKING signs posted on the adjacent streets to the school; S. Stockenham facing south just past the school and E. Lachlan one side of the street. We all know the school parking lot is small but the main streets get crowded when lined on both sides. Other options include parking on the lower level of the YMCA by the park and walking in, or parking further back on the streets to walk in. Miss Maddy will be there to help you get across the street at the main crosswalk!

Be patient, be on the lookout when crossing the street, don’t forget backpacks, don’t be late and have a great first day!!!


It’s almost goodbye to summer and hello to our awesome Herons staff! Don’t forget TOMORROW food trucks will be at the school from 4-7pm and Meet & Greet will be from 4:30-6pm! Stop by the PTO table inside the front doors of the school to find out how you can support our amazing staff and students this school year. Throughout the school year we need volunteers to help support various fundraisers and staff events throughout the year. Don’t have much time? No worries, we can still use your help! Come see us!!!


This is a reminder that since the first day of school is on Wednesday, it’s a late start day! Tardy bell rings at 9:25 😉


One week from today is Meet & Greet from 4:30-6pm! These are our featured food trucks so come hungry; they’re excited to serve you! They’ll be set-up from 4-7pm in the bus loop.


Anyone else feel like summer just flew by?!?! Two weeks from tonight staff will be back on campus and ready to greet you! The PTO will also have a table for you to find out how you can help support or amazing staff and students this year!

Today the PTO sponsored a school wide assembly with nationally known animal expert Corbin Maxey! In split assemblies he presented and taught students about different animals and the importance of treating animals with respect. He even made sure to share with the teachers that Tarantulas make excellent classroom pets! He invited a couple of students and staff members up to participate by holding done if the animals. His biggest animal was a snake that he rescued 20 years ago when Mrs. Bair was his assistant principal at Lake Hazel Middle School! If you’d like to check out his show, he’ll be at The Village on Wednesday nights for the month of June 🐍🐢🦎
