June and July Bulletin

In this news letter:

Need to plan ahead?  Here are several ways to get your ducks in a row.

The full year calendar is available on the website.  Tentative dates for the 2013- 2014 school year are already there.  If you look at the upper right hand of the calendar you will see that there are several options.  You can look at it according to the week, the month, or the agenda, which is a list of upcoming dates.  If you click on agenda, you scroll down the side and the date range of listing will continue to expand.

Want a printed record of upcoming months?  You can print out whatever date range you would like by hitting the print button also in the upper right hand corner.  The print option is available in both the monthly and agenda format.

Finally if you have your own google calendar, you can download any individual event by clicking on the event where you will see a link for “copy to my calendar.”

Susan works very hard to keep this calendar current.  It is the best place to get up-to-date information about what is happening at Hillside.  On the 25th of the month, we also send out a monthly bulletin, which serves as a reminder and gives more details for the following month.

REMINDER:  Students are required to bring re-usable water bottles to school every day.  Please make sure you student has one.

Looking for Summer Activities? Here are three great opportunities to fill up those lazy summer days.

Hillside Cavaliers Fencing Camp

Summer 2013

Hillside Cavaliers Fencing Club is offering a week long fencing camp for beginning and intermediate level fencers, both youth and juniors, suggested ages 10-18, interested in the art of the sword.  We will cover effective sabre footwork, bladework, and tactics, and have fun sparring.  Sabre is the fastest, subtlest, most athletic (and, to its practitioners, the most fun) of the three fencing weapons.

Classes and lessons will be taught by world class Sabre Master Wang Yung and long-time coach Kael Sherrard (possibly joined for some sessions by another coach, Jana Broecking).

Hillside Student Community School Gym
5027 159th Pl. S.E.
Bellevue WA  98006

August 5-9, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
(An afternoon session may also be added if there is enough interest.)

$200 for the entire week.

Most basic equipment will be supplied by the camp.
