What is happening at Hillside in January…

Spotlight on

Bake Sale Success!
Thanks to the hard work of the Intermediate Class and the community’s generosity, we raised $550 dollars! This means each student (and Sigrid) will have $50 dollars to lend on Kiva.org—our plan is for this money to be in the student’s care until they leave Hillside, meaning that whenever their selected loan is paid back, they can re-loan the money, creating a long-term experience with supporting people working to better their situation.
Edible Egypt
The Intermediate Class was also busy making our own, historic twist on gingerbread houses—recreating Ancient Egyptian landmarks!
Climate Change Carnival
On Friday, February 10th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm Hillside’s Environmental Science class will be hosting a Climate Change Carnival.   A $10 suggested donation will get you tickets to make purchases at our bake sale and play climate change related games designed by the students.  We also plan to have a recycled art station and environmentally themed face painting.  We will finish the evening with presentations on climate change by the students followed by a game of Jeopardy to test your new knowledge.
All proceeds will go to a charity fighting climate change.  Join us, and bring your friends!
Open House
Whether the groundhog sees his shadow or not—you can still join us for February’s Open House! Please pass along our invitation to anyone you know who might be interested in our learning environment.
