6/19 Hillside Graduation! Congratulations to our Seniors!
We will celebrate the ceremony in the field behind the gym on Saturday, June 19, at 10:30 am. Space is limited to approximately 50 masked audience members in pods or distanced, and priority is given to the families of graduates and to teachers. Please register in advance with Lizeth (firstname.lastname@example.org). Stay tuned for any updates!
The Hillside staff would like to share our utmost gratitude to all the families of students aged twelve and older who have already pursued Covid-19 vaccination. In addition to a fully vaccinated faculty, the overwhelming majority of Hillside’s eligible students have begun or finished their full vaccination. Thank you for prioritizing your health and the health of our community!
2021-2022 Year Schedule Proposal
Hillside is considering changing the start of Zero Period next year to 8:20 am instead of 8:00 am. This would bump First Period to 9:15 am and end the day at 3:20 pm. Clubs would also end later at 4:50 pm.
In recent years, various studies have indicated that teenagers function better with a later start to the school day. Before COVID, Hillside’s Zero Hour began at 8:00. Following the 2020-21 adjustment to the schedule, we thought that the upcoming year would be a good time to consider broaching a slightly later start. This option is not carved in stone! Please give us your thoughts about this idea by emailing Lizeth.

Hillside Players perform William Shakespeare’s As You Like It!
Come to this gender-bending show full of love, jealousy, betrayal, comedy, and reconciliation held in the field behind the gym as our woods become the Forest of Arden!
Tickets are limited and will not be available at the door due to audience limitation. Please buy tickets for your preferred evening at Brown Paper Tickets. Seats are limited to 50 masked audience members in pods or distanced. The show will go on, rain or shine. If rain is predicted, bring your umbrellas or raingear. As the exiled Old Duke says about rough living, “These are counsellors that feelingly persuade me what I am.”
Happy birthday to our summer birthdays:
June birthdays: Bravo, Rhosey, Lizeth
July birthdays: Tavish, Paul, Sam, Thomas, Rowan, Wis
August birthdays: Ashton, Joshua, Noah, Megan, Kalan, Karen
Enjoy the beauty of our forest
The students in the Environmental Science course enjoyed the beauty and observed nature in a sit spot on the Hillside property. The forestry elective created art and hung it in the trees
Megan’s Departure – A Note from the Director
Dear Hillside Families,
As some of you may already know, Megan Owen has decided to leave her position at Hillside for personal reasons. We are sad to see her go, but feel very fortunate to have benefited from her many gifts as the 5th and 6th grade humanities teacher during this last year. She has shown insight, wisdom, dedication, talent, and sensitivity, and has supported her students through a challenging time. We hope to stay in touch with her, and she may return as a substitute. We are grateful to her, and will miss her very much!
We thank her and wish her the best!

Are you considering sending your child to a preparatory school near Kirkland? Deciding which academic setting will be best for your son or daughter can be difficult. This is especially true for new parents and families that have recently relocated. It’s even more stressful because the decision you make now can have a huge impact on your child’s academic future. As you weigh your options, keep these important preparatory school benefits in mind.
It is not uncommon for a preparatory school to have better facilities than nearby public options. In fact, equipment of all kinds is likely to be higher quality and more frequently updated. As you tour the school in question, take note of the building and supplies available.
A preparatory school will have a wide array of highly-trained and experienced educators ready to assist your child with all of his or her needs. This is particularly relevant for children with learning disabilities, as teachers with special education training will be better able to address these conditions.
Small Classroom Sizes
No one wants their child to become lost in the crowd. That’s why choosing a preparatory school with small class sizes is really important. This ensures your son or daughter will receive the individualized attention they need and deserve in order to become a successful learner. With fewer students per class there will be fewer distractions and teachers can monitor progress better.
