We teachers and staff definitely appreciate you, our Community, and we hope you feel the same towards us. If you do, here are 5 ways to show your appreciation:
1. Tell us!
If you have a chance, send a note, email, phone call, or just stop in to express your support for the Hillside teachers. Thankfully, our wonderful community allows us to feel connected to our students’ families, but I assure you, a word of appreciation brightens our days.
2. Tell others!
In the age of digital investigation, online ratings/comments are often the way that families learn about our school. Several families have already reviewed Hillside, and I honestly got teary and humble reading the reviews people have written. If you have not yet reviewed us, please consider taking ten minutes and doing so. The same review can be used for multiple sites, making it even easier for you. To add a Google Review, google “Hillside Student Community School” and click on the “Write a Review” that will be on the right-hand side (where the red arrow is on the picture to the right).
3. Give (even a little) for GiveBIG
This year, you can donate any time from now through 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday 5/3/16, and have your donation count for our GiveBIG total! Each donation, no matter the size, adds to our “stretch funds” from the Seattle Foundation. We are hoping to use these funds to continue our development of Hillside’s physical spaces.
Teacher Appreciation week should, for Hillside, actually start on Sunday, 5/1, with the annual History Feast. This year, notable figures from Ancient through Medeival History will meet and discourse. Who would want to miss that? It will be in the gym at 5:30 p.m.
5. Hang Out!
The final Open House of this school year is Thursday, 5/5, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. We aim to celebrate the close of the GiveBIG fundraiser, as well as to welcome our new families for 2016-2017.
