Hillside High School had a successful school opening. All students arrived in the required uniform – Khaki pants/skirts, black, white or maroon shirts. Teachers welcomed students into their classrooms where they provided orientation activities (fire drills, handbook, curriculum, rules and regulations, morning and dismissal procedures, etc.)
It was a great pleasure meeting and greeting the parents who took the time to visit their children’s classroom on Thursday, September 29th, at our Back to School Night. A student’s school success is linked closely to parental interest and involvement.
