Reflect on This….
Perhaps the greatest skill for a parent today is learning not to be hurt, truly
understanding that what teenagers say and scream means nothing other than
that they are teenagers and this is how teenagers today behave… Your teenage
children cannot diminish you unless you allow them to.
Hillside Gardens Look Great!
As you are dropping off or picking up your children please take a moment to look
around and enjoy our wonderful gardens. All the plants you see growing have
been planted in the previous year by our own Hillside students. The Garden
Committee would like to thank all the families who volunteered over the summer
to water and weed. A special thanks to Lexi Mastras, who personally volunteer
to adopt the butterfly garden and cared for it the entire summer.
From The Office:
Reminder! Please send in the medical forms and the signed Code of Conduct
