What’s Happening at Hillside…
The First Month back!
Welcome back to Hillside – we are so glad to commence our 53rd year with you! We began this year spending a few days getting to know some new faces, renewing old acquaintances, and figuring out how to grow as a community (while maintaining social distance).
Happy September birthday wishes to: Isaac, Ryan, Kael, Julia, Kyle, Julie, and Amelia! We hope you have wonderful days filled with happiness and delicious cake.
Curriculum night will be online this year. Expect an email later this month with links to curriculum videos from staff. Watch curriculum night at a time that suits you best!
Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15th-October 15th. We celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month to recognize the achievements and contributions of Hispanic American champions who have inspired others to achieve success. Here is a great article from the Pew Research Center on the Latino population in the U.S.
The next open house is scheduled for October 7th at 7pm. Due to continued Covid-19 restrictions, masks are required. To RSVP, please sign up here.
Please remember to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with what is happening on campus. Also please upload a photo to your Jupiter profile (parents and students).
Clubs begin the week of September 13th. For information about signing up, please contact Lizeth or the club sponsor.
