What’s Happening at Hillside
The 10th and 11th grade used the words of Zora Neale Hurston and August Wilson to craft slam poems in their American Literature block. Featured picture of Tavish, the slam winner!
Our Open House this Thursday is still a go! We will continue to monitor and follow the recommendations regarding COVID-19; as of now, we should practice good hygiene but are not advised to cancel gatherings. Please join us—and recommend the amazing Hillside experience to any families you know looking at their next academic step. Thursday 3/5 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
At Hillside, we value reading. We also value transforming personal reading experience into student projects! The 7thand 8thgraders created board games based on books, while 5thand 6thmade original book covers, scrapbooks, and more!
Branches of Government
The 5/6 students explored the foundations of our government by creating Government Super Heroes! Each student identified the origin story (what article of the Constitution established the branch), powers (checks and balances over other branches), weaknesses (how other branches can check them), and learned about the branch’s basic function. Our completed mobile is in the classroom, so come on in to see how the balancing act is going!
