  • March 2023 “Hillview Happenings”

    Dear Hillview Families,

    Please have your child bring his/her favorite book to school on Thursday, March 16th for our school-wide Drop Everything and Read (“D.E.A.R.”) time beginning at 10:00 am.  All students and staff members will be able to enjoy 20 minutes of uninterrupted reading time with some fictional or informational text.

    A friendly reminder:  If your child would like to pass out birthday invitations at school, please adhere to the following guidelines.  If your child is a boy, he can invite all of the boys from the class or all of the students from his class.  If your child is a girl, she can invite all of the girls from the class or all of the students from her class.  Students cannot distribute invitations to other students in other classes at school.  Thank you for your cooperation.

    On Tuesday, March 21st, Hillview will participate in the “Rock your Socks” day to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day.  Everyone at Hillview should wear their most colorful and/or decorative socks that day. 

    We hope that all of our families can join us for the Hillview Talent Show on Friday, March 10th at 6:30 pm in our Hillview auditorium.  We thank Mrs. Shamrock, Mrs. Carroll, Mrs. Paolella and Mrs. Ping for organizing and planning this event. We are extremely excited to see our students perform and share all of their incredible talent!

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th!  We also look forward to celebrating the first day of spring and to the warmer weather that it brings to all of us in Western New York!
