Dear Hillview Families,
I hope that everyone had a restful, healthy and enjoyable summer with family and friends. Today, we were extremely excited to begin a brand new school year! It went very well, and everyone had a wonderful day together at our school. It was great to meet all of our new students and to see students together again with new and old friends.
Just some friendly reminders:
All Lancaster schools offer a breakfast program. Research shows that children learn better after eating a healthy breakfast. Breakfast costs $1.50, it can be picked up in the cafeteria food line, and it will be eaten in the cafeteria. The regular price for lunch is $2.40. There is an option of free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch for those who qualify. Forms for free and reduced lunch/breakfast are still available, so please call 686-3245 if you need a form.
Our first PTO meeting will be held in the Hillview library media center this Tuesday, September 12th at 6 pm. Information about joining the PTO was sent home today in your child’s red take home folder. We hope that you and your family are able to join the PTO during our membership drive, which runs until October 9th. This organization does so many wonderful things for our students and school.
Open House is “meet the teacher night” for parents only, and we look forward to seeing you on Thursday, September 21st. Please remember that students will be dismissed at 1:00 PM. Students will still attend lunch on that day. You will be informed about the grade level curriculum and classroom expectations at Open House. A detailed schedule for the evening will be sent home as we get closer.
On a daily basis, please ensure that written notification is turned in to your child’s teacher regarding any type of dismissal changes, including pick up, YMCA, daycare or school bus changes. We greatly appreciate your efforts to avoid last minute dismissal changes as well. We also request that parents pay close attention to the parking signs. Please park in designated parking spaces. Parking in the front drop-off loop or in the bus loop before school, during the school day and at dismissal is prohibited. Working together, we can ensure that emergency vehicles have access to the building at all times. In addition, if you are new to the school, Mrs. Bacher is our school nurse. Please contact her at 686-3283 if there are any medical questions or concerns that need to be shared regarding your child.
Please note: Monthly “Hillview Happenings” newsletters, PTO newsletters and our school’s monthly event calendar will be posted in the “Virtual Backpack” section on our Hillview website. In addition, please follow Hillview on Twitter at HillviewES@EsHillview. Many fun pictures and events from school are shared there on certain occasions.
I look forward to working and learning with all Hillview Elementary School students, staff and families. It is going to be an outstanding school year with much success for all learners!
