A Letter from Principal Drummond

Dear Hill Community,

We enjoyed seeing all of our families, staff, and friends who attended the Hill Fall Carnival this past Saturday! It was perfect weather for all of the fun activities and food. We want to thank all of our volunteers who make this massive undertaking possible, especially our executive PTA and Dillo Dad group. Their hard work started months in advance, and our school is so grateful for the long hours they put in to support Hill School.

At school, we have wrapped up our first 9 weeks of instruction and many fall conferences. Thank you to all of our staff members for their dedication to our students and their progress. Many teachers will begin tutorials soon, if they have not already begun, for students who need the extra support. We encourage all of our parents and guardians to continue close partnerships with our teachers to ensure all students have solid plans to support them academically and emotionally. We are off to a great start so far as we look ahead to further success.

I want to invite all of our stakeholders to the next Principal Coffee, tomorrow (Thursday), where the Parkhill, Smith, and Cooper architectural team will update attendees on phase one of our future modernized campus with a proposed 10 studio addition and new gym. Discussions will include construction planning, updated parking/traffic plans, and updates from our last community meeting. The team will also be attending our next CAC meeting to examine how the phase one construction will affect our campus for the 20-21 school year. We are excited for the future for Hill School and the opportunities a modernized campus will bring for our community!

With Halloween upon us for Thursday, just a friendly reminder that students should not wear costumes to school on October 31st. We appreciate your support in helping your student dress appropriately as usual.

We hope you have a truly wonderful week!

Principal Drummond
