October Bulletin

First a few reminders and announcements:

We love your pets but unfortunately several students have allergies. So when you visit Hillside, please leave your pets at home.  Our sneezing students thank you!

Interested in a rock climbing club?  If you want to learn more, go to http://hscschool.org/community/teacher-pages/bradley-d-lignoski/climbing-club/. Brad has inserted a form at the bottom of the page to get a sense of interest and availability.


Here are the highlights for the month of October:
