In the Spotlight


    June 2019    

    Dear Hillview Families,

    There are many special, culminating events and activities in store for our students in June.  We thank all the families who took the time to vote last month on May 21st.  Fortunately, the school budget passed, allowing for wonderful academic and extracurricular programs and activities to continue within the Lancaster Central School District.  We also thank all of our Hillview students who went to vote with their parents.  The “Kids Vote” results are in; we will have a “bonus” spirit day on June 6th, and our students can wear their favorite sports team attire.  The Kindergarten End of the Year Celebration will be held on June 7th, a Flag Day Ceremony for the students will happen on June 14th, the Hillview Field Day is set for June 21st and the Third Grade Moving Up Day Ceremony is scheduled for June 26th.  Please note that only pre-registered volunteers will be able to attend our Field Day.  Additional information about Field Day will be sent home very soon.  In addition, our PTO thoughtfully sponsors a variety of fun and educational field trips for all students to enjoy from now until the end of June.  Please refer to the attached June calendar for details. 

    On behalf of the Hillview staff, I want to express how grateful we are to the PTO and to our parent volunteers for all of the time they invest and for all of the wonderful things they do for our students and school.  So many families fundraised and donated their time throughout the school year.  The PTO is still looking for chairpersons for events for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please take a look at “Sign Up Genius” for the Hillview PTO for more details and volunteer opportunities.  Here is how to utilize Sign Up Genius:

    1. Go to: signupgenius.com.
    2. For a tablet or larger: click the search button in the upper right corner.
    3. For mobile friendly (no app): scroll to the bottom and click “find.”
    4. Email search: ptopres2018@gmail.com.
    5. For a tablet or larger: enter the case sensitive code.
    6. Mobile friendly (no app): solve the math problem.
    7. You’re in! Pick your event and sign up.
    8. Create login for reminders to use next time.


    With warmer weather approaching us, classes will be taking turns on both playgrounds.  Please ensure that your child wears sneakers to school so that he/she can safely participate in the playground fun.  Students are not allowed to wear flip flops, and they will need to adhere to the school’s dress code policy as well.  Parents can refer to the Parent/Student Handbook or call the school if they have any questions about the dress code.

    The K-3 schools will be sending home class placement letters the week of August 12th.  This is new for all of the K-3 schools.  Class supply lists will be made available on the Hillview website before the school year ends.  Many families have decided to order “pre-made” supply kits from TeacherTailored, in advance.  The deadline for ordering the kits is June 21st.  The kits will be at the school in the cafeteria on Supply Drop Off Day (August 29th).  More information about supply drop off will be included with the class placement letters. 

    We look forward to a fun and memorable conclusion to another fantastic school year.  Every person in this school community, including students, staff members and family members, make Hillview such a positive and rewarding place to be, to work and to learn every day.  I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable last month of the 2018-2019 school year.  As a school, we wish our third grade students the best of luck as they prepare for their transition to William Street School.  They will be missed very much.  Have a terrific summer!

    Best wishes,

    Mrs. Moeller
