Dear Hillview Parents/Guardians,
Throughout October, we began P.A.R.P. (Parents as Reading Partners). Research shows that reading with your child on a daily basis at home makes them stronger and more confident readers at school. Students who participate in P.A.R.P are randomly chosen for the “Read to Ride” Program. In this program, students are picked up at their home before school in a Bowmansville fire truck and are brought to school with one of our staff members.
Hillview also embraced our first set of “Gift of the Month” and Fusion Inside Out assemblies with a character education focus on courage, kindness, caring and friendship. I am sure that your child would love to tell you all about the “Gift of the Month” book that every classroom received and its inspiring message. In addition, students from each classroom were recognized on our character education bulletin board display in the main hallway.
The recent Food and Toiletry Drive for the Lancaster and Depew area brought in a total of 5,560 pounds of food. Six local schools contributed. We have such thoughtful and generous students, staff members and families. Hillview is also “Goin’ Bald for Bucks” to support Roswell Park. We will have a culminating assembly on November 15th to honor survivors, patients and loved ones.
Our PTO already started to organize our annual Veterans Day display, “Hillview’s Hallway of Heroes,” in our main hallway. With family photographs, we will remember our United States veterans and all they sacrifice and/or have sacrificed for our country during the month of November. At the school, and with the help of PTO volunteers, we will proudly share the veterans we know and love.
Just a reminder: parent-teacher conferences take place at the school on December 5th and 6th. Our teachers look forward to meeting with all our parents and guardians. The Scholastic Fall Book Fair has been postponed, but will take place this spring. On behalf of Hillview, we wish all of our families a Happy Thanksgiving and a peaceful and prosperous November.
