The  PTA strives to positively impact the lives of all students and their families by providing meaningful educational opportunities and engaging family activities throughout the school year. We will sponsor programs to enhance the academic experience and learning environment of all students. We will foster communication and cooperation between parents, teachers, staff and the local community.
Coin ChallengeNov 1

The Coin Challenge will officially start Friday, Nov 1st and will run through Nov.15th. Donate your loose change to Hillside and help purchase books for our school community. Every year Hillside classes compete to collect the most coins to help fund teachers' classroom wish lists. This year the class that collects the most coins will win a Game Day and Pizza Party! There will be one winning class in each grade. All the proceeds go to fund books for the Hillside community. To participate, you can send coins with your child in bags or other easily accessible containers. No bills please.

The Hillside Scholastic Book Fair will open for business Monday, Nov. 11th and will be open until Friday, Nov. 15th. As in past years, the students will shop on their own during scheduled class periods and lunchtime.
