The Hillside School Parking Lot: Please DO NOT park in any parking spaces which are labeled
for the Office and especially for the Principal. Even if you are going to stay ‘just a minute’, there are
designated Visitor parking spaces. This also applies to after school hours. Also, the yellow-lined space
next to the Principal’s parking space IS NOT a parking space. When there are no more Visitor spaces
available, you must park on the street. Thank you for your cooperation.
**Attention all 5th grade parents**
We need your child's "favorites" and a baby picture of your child between the ages of 6
months and 1 year. Click here for the form & the specifics on the baby picture. Both are due
March 12th!!! If it is not received by Friday, March 12, it will not be included in the
yearbook!! We are still missing a good amount of baby pictures and favorites, so if you haven’t
sent them in yet, please do so by Friday, March 12.

50/50 PreSale Raffle -- We could all use some extra cash and the pot is growing. One
lucky winner will get half of the money and why shouldn’t it be you? Buy a raffle
ticket (or two, three, more) and take a chance at winning some cold, hard cash. This raffle will close March 18th and
the winner will be drawn on the following night. If you didn’t receive tickets or want more, please contact Carmela
Ullman at (973) 992-7144. (Cash or check payable to Hillside PTA) And if you're not buying any tickets or are
unable to sell them, please return them to Carmela.

You can purchase (or sell) as many tickets as you like. Friends, family, fellow employees and
neighbors are eligible to participate.
Whoever purchases a ticket KEEPS the portion with the “50/50” details on it. Return, with the
money, the portion that has the name, address and phone number. (Please write neatly so we
can contact the winner if they’re not present for the drawing.)
This is an off-premise raffle. These tickets will not be sold during our event on March 19th but the
winning ticket will be drawn that night. Due to strict auditing regulations, the winning ticket holder
MUST be able to provide their ticket stub in order to claim their prize.
The Big Event -- Friday, March 19th
We need help Friday morning with transporting baskets from 55 Wellington Road to Hanover Manor in
East Hanover. If you've got a minivan and want to help, please show up at 8:45 a.m. ready to go.
We'll also need volunteers to distribute programs and handle ticket sales. Michelle Allen is coordinating
the schedule and the more volunteers we get, the less we all have to do. Volunteers can arrive early to
preview the baskets and put tickets in before the crowd starts to swarm. You're going to be socializing
anyway so why not help the PTA -- it's a lot of fun. Contact [email protected]

In preparation for our June Field Day, you’ll want to get your Hillside student geared up with our brandnew Hillside Baseball Caps to keep the sun out of their eyes and their focus on the fun. And don’t forget,
for all those cool beach nights this summer, your kids will stay warm wearing their new Hillside Full-Zip
Hoodies, Pullover Sweatshirts, and cozy Flannel PJ’s. All items are available in youth and adult sizes so
moms and dads (maybe even grandma?) can look as awesome as their kids.

books can be fiction, non-fiction, picture or chapter books. No board books or adult books. Left
over books will be donated to a resource center in Newark, part of the Newark Library. If you
have any questions, or lots of books (too many to send into school with your child) then email
