Dear Hillview Families,
Happy New Year! Our Hillview staff members hope that your family had a memorable, peaceful and relaxing holiday season and winter recess. December was such a fun and magical month. It was filled with enjoyable, festive and humorous events for Hillview students, staff members and families.
We thank all of our parents and guardians who took the time to vote last month on December 11th. Voters approved the capital project work, and we are grateful for their support. All LCSD schools will benefit from the project. Our Hillview students even had an opportunity to vote for an additional spirit day that evening. A “bonus” sports/athletic attire spirit day take place this Friday, January 4th. Pajama Day will also take place on Friday, January 18th.
Looking ahead, many great things are planned for 2019. Our winter concert/night of the arts for third graders is scheduled for 7:00 PM on Thursday, January 17th. With the guidance and leadership of Mrs. Shamrock and Mrs. Hrusa, the third graders have worked very hard since September to prepare for this culmination of musical and artistic talent.
The next general PTO meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 22nd at 6:30 PM in the library media center. We are thrilled for the next six months of school. Best wishes to all for a happy and healthy 2019!
