Dear Hill Community,
It is Valentine’s Day week. It is always fun to see the excitement our students bring in for the occasion. Thank you all for keeping the student candy and balloons at home! We look forward to a great week. Looking ahead, please also know that there is no school on Monday, February 19th for a student and staff holiday.
Share the Love Food Drive: The Hill Caring & Sharing Committee invites you to SHARE THE LOVE, benefitting HopeAustin food pantry during our February Food Drive. We are asking each class to collect individual microwavable cups of mac & cheese and/or squeezable applesauce. Shop & ship here or bring items to the class or front office where you can find donation boxes. Collection runs February 5th-16th. Thank you for supporting this group who supports our families every week!
NAEP Testing (National Assessment of Educational Progress) from the U.S. Department of Education will take place for some (not all) of our 4th graders this Tuesday, February 13th in the morning. If your 4th grader will be participating, you have already received a letter. No other grades take part in this national assessment.
From our Counselors: You can click here for the February Counselor Corner Newsletter. Also, if your student is identified as Gifted and Talented, click here to check out an opportunity to participate in a virtual student showcase with Austin ISD.
