From Mr. Drummond

Dear Hill Community,

We are one week away from the fall break! There will be no school from 11/20-11/24. As we get closer to the Thanksgiving holiday, we encourage you to consider recognizing a staff member for an AISD RAVE Award to show your appreciation!

We also have no school Monday, November 13th (tomorrow). This is in observance of Diwali.  Diwali is known as the Festival of Lights and is a Hindu observance celebrated throughout the world. We hope all families celebrating have an excellent holiday. Also, join me in celebrating our Pre-K and PE Teacher Assistants this week during their appreciation week!

Enroll your student for the 24-25 school year: Enroll Austin is now open to register your student(s) for the fall of 2024. Please visit to get started now. Registration is open earlier this year, and we encourage our families to register early so we have an accurate picture for fall staffing. You can click here for an infographic and QR Code with more information. This link has the information in Spanish. Lastly, here is an introductory video as Enroll Austin went live this week!

Join us this Thursday at our Hill library at 7:45 am for our General PTA Meeting. AISD Board Trustee Kathryn Whitley Chu will join us to engage with our community. We hope to see you there.

Support Hill families this Holiday Season: This year the Hill Caring & Sharing Committee is coordinating a GIFT CARD DRIVE for our Hill families in need this holiday season.  We are changing up our gift drive this year and collecting GIFT CARDS ONLY. We will not be collecting individual gifts this year.  If you would like to donate, you may SIGN UP HERE to donate a gift card(s) from HEB, OLD NAVY and/or TARGET.  You are welcome to sign up for as many slots as your budget allows. Gift cards may be placed in the collection envelope outside of the Counselor’s office.  Deadline to donate: Friday, December 8th. 

We wanted to include a link to information on the parent portal and Parent Self Serve Instructions. There is a lot of information on how to access different items for your student, including grades and attendance. For our Spanish-speaking families, the Parent Self Serve Instructions (Spanish) are included here. 

Have an excellent week. We will see you back on campus on Tuesday, Hill Community!
