4/25/22 Monday Message from Dr. Hart-Olivis

Good evening Hillandale Families, this is Dr. Hart-Olivis with this week’s Monday Message.

Join us for a Hillandale Family Dine Out Night tonight, Monday, April 25 at Pomodoro Italian Kitchen at 1811 Hillandale Road.  We’d love to see you, and don’t forget to tell them you’re part of The Hillandale Family for part of the evening’s profit to come back to our students at Hillandale.

Thank you to our many families who were able to join us for Hike for Hillandale last week.  It was so wonderful to be able to invite families and volunteers to the building again to enjoy our beautiful outdoor trail!  We extend special thanks to our families and staff members who helped set up the event and planning over the past weeks for a huge success Friday.  As the donations continue to be turned in, we’re thrilled to find out how much money The Hillandale Family has raised!

Students in third through fifth grades have started taking CASE 21 assessments, the benchmark tests that will let us know what work we need to do for our final push with students as they look toward end of grade testing.  Students have been working on stamina and practicing the most powerful standards as they get ready for these assessments and, of course, the EOGs.  Since the last CASE 21 assessment in December, students have developed goals and focused on where they can grow.  I’ll be sweetening those victories by recognizing the students who make tremendous growth, from the middle-of-year CASE 21 to this spring version.  Please be sure your child has enough rest, and, if possible a good breakfast in the morning.  Please also encourage your child to use great study practices and to try their best when the test comes.  Not only will students with incredible growth be recognized, but their names will also be entered in a raffle for special prizes!

You may be receiving messages by phone and through mail if you have not yet updated your student’s information on PowerSchool Parent Portal to get ready for the 2022-23 school year.  Families, we need your help in completing this step to solidify your child’s enrollment for next year.  Now you can complete all of your back-to-school paperwork online quickly, easily, and securely. This is a great way to update your contact information, fill out forms, and stay connected with your school.
