THANKS A LOT!!!
We all deserve a pat on the back but this week we are honoring the teachers and staff of Hillside
as we celebrate National Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week. Hillside School is a wonderful
community and the teachers and staff members are an integral part of what makes it wonderful
for our children. Please take the opportunity to tell the teachers and staff members of Hillside
that you appreciate them and value their contribution to our school.
Thanks to all who came out and showed their H.E.A.R.T. on Friday night at Family Fun Night! Hillside
students decorated 50 hearts for the Hearts of Hope program! What a beautiful way to reach out to
others!!

MARKET DAY
Our school community is participating in a fundraising food program called Market Day. Market Day, the
original fundraising food co-op, has been in operation since 1975 and has grown to include thousands of
schools just like ours.
Each month, as a participating Market Day school, restaurant-quality food products, from the same
vendors that supply many upscale restaurants, will be available for purchase. Market Day products are
competitively priced and our organization will earn profit on your purchases. We can earn this money
without our students going door-to-door, without purchasing products we wouldn't ordinarily purchase,
and with the knowledge that all products are of exceptional quality and covered by a Satisfaction
Guarantee!
The order sheet will be coming home once a month with your student. Please take a few minutes to
review it and place an order. We are confident that this fundraising program will not only benefit our
school and the programs we support, but will also benefit you as the consumer.
