Do you want your child assigned to a class next year?
Register online by May 1st!

Parents need to log into their Parent Cloud account, click on the Registration Tile and complete the 2017-2018 registration.  If new to AISD the parent must create a parent cloud account at my.austinisd.org.  If parent email has changed this school year, please send the new email via hill@austinisd.org to update the new information.  Having trouble with the parent cloud?  Call the Parent Technology Support Help Line at 512-414-9187.  Completion of the registration process helps us determine staffing needs for the new school year.

The District is excited about Online Registration and is hoping for 100% participation! Computers are available in the office if you do not have access to a computer at home.  If you are unsure about returning to Hill next year, go ahead and register online.  It is easier to take a student out of a class vs. put them in a class at the last minute.

Again, PLEASE COMPLETE ONLINE REGISTRATION NOW!!!! THANK YOU!

My Bucket is Full, Thanks!

Our kids hear a lot about filling people’s buckets, but let’s be clear.  They are NOT referring to the LOST AND FOUND BUCKET!
I am perfectly happy with an empty bucket.

It was a pretty slow week.  More items were leaving lost and found than coming in.  Then on Thursday, I arrived in the morning to find my bucket FULL!  I know you guys are worried about my job security as kids are wearing fewer and fewer jackets with the nice weather.  Don’t worry, I am not paid per item.  I will be ok.  I will push through.  I will find new interests.  I appreciate your concern and my EMOTIONAL bucket is full.

Guess that Theme (first to email me all 4 correct answers will win a prize lostandfound@hillelementary.com)
  

Which one Does Not Belong? (I thought I was seeing that jacket a lot.)

Thanks,

Dillo Cards Enrollment

The Dillo Cards program is a no-cost-to-you PTA fundraiser. The PTA purchases gift cards from participating merchants at a discount, then the PTA sells the cards to you at face value. The PTA makes a profit from the discount. For example, you pay $100 for a $100 gift card. In the case of HEB, Hill earns $4 and HEB earns $96. You can use the gift cards for your monthly shopping.  You can subscribe to monthly pre-paid cards from stores including HEB, Randalls, Whole Foods, and Starbucks to be sent to your home.  The PTA offers special gift cards for the holidays to local businesses and restaurants.  All purchases directly benefit Hill!  Click Here to order your cards today!


Scholarship for Graduating Seniors

The Hill Elementary Alumni Scholarship was established in 2011 to honor Hill’s 40th anniversary. It is now called The Suzanne and Vincent Torres Hill Elementary Alumni Scholarship in honor of Mr. Torres and his wife, and their dedication to our school and the district. The goal is to recognize former students who have excelled in their academic endeavors, supported their community through service projects, and proven they possess a drive to further their education. By granting this scholarship, we encourage students to continue their academic endeavors beyond high school and hope to strengthen the relationship between Hill and its alumni. This year, one scholarship in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded. To apply, click here.
