Naming of the Hillside High School gymnasium floor

The Hillside Board of Education announced at its meeting of January 19, 2017 that it would like to name the newly–renovated floor of the Hillside High School gymnasium.  Board policy states that “Facility names shall be descriptive and/or significant to the schools and community.”

Community members are invited to make comments and submit names to Dr. Antoine Gayles, Superintendent of Schools.  He may be contacted at 195 Virginia Street, Hillside, by email at agayles@hillsidek12.org or by telephone at 908-352-7664, ext. 6400.

Principal's Message A Message from the Principal

February is the time to celebrate Love and Black History


As parents, you have unique ways of sending your children messages of love.  Sometimes, a child just doesn’t get the message and thinks his/her parents don’t care.

“There are at least three languages of love,” says child development specialist H. Wallace Goddard.  They are showing, telling and touching:

  • A child who wants to be shown love—wants you to do things with him/her.  So arrange to spend some quality time with them.
  • A tell-me child wants to hear words like, “I love you,” “I’m so glad you’re my child” and “I enjoy being with you.”
  • A touch-me child needs a parent to hug him/her, no matter how old they are.

Notice what your child asks for. 

Watch how your child sends his/her own messages of love. 

Once you’ve figured this out, plan how you will send your child messages of love.

At Hillside High School we conduct activities throughout the school year that focus students’ attention on the significant contributions members of various race & ethnic groups have made to our society, during the month of February we celebrate the accomplishments of Black Americans.
