  • TOYS FOR TOTS

    Toys for Tots!

    On December 1st, Hilldale will begin collecting for the U.S. Marine Corps' "Toys For Tots" program.  The toys must be NEW and may be for children of any age.  Please bring the UNWRAPPED toy to school and place the train tag that went home with your child on the gift with your child’s name.  We will be placing each tag on the bulletin board in the main hall!  The collection will run until Friday, December 16th.

  • Message in a Bottle - food
     
    Student Council will be holding a holiday food collection for the Montville Kiwanis Food Pantry during the month of December.  There will be collection bins located at the front hallway, and all food that is collected will be donated to Montville residents in need.  Mr. Jones, Mrs. Weber, and Student Council reps will drop off all food gathered before the winter break.
     
    In the past, we've asked the Food Pantry for a list of the "Top 6" items that they need, and they can be found below. 
     
    Although any non-perishable items are welcomed, these are the food pantry's TOP 6 NEEDED ITEMS:
     
     Macaroni & Cheese ~  Spaghetti ~  Tuna Fish 
     Canned Fruit ~  Cold Cereal ~  Pancake Mix 

    NO GLASS JARS PLEASE!
     
     For every 2 items of food that you bring it, your name will be entered into a raffle for a $2.00 gift certificate at the School Store!  Five winners will be drawn before Winter Recess!
     
    ALSO, PLEASE CHECK YOUR EXPIRATION DATES: BY NJ LAW, THE FOOD PANTRY CANNOT HAND OUT ANY FOOD THAT HAS AN OLD EXPIRATION DATE!

  • We Tackled Kids Cancer!

    Thanks to all of the kids, families, and teachers who donated money or baked goods, Hilldale was able to raise $1,129 for Eli Manning's Challenge to "Tackle Kids Cancer"!  Eli will be donating $100,000 to match community fundraisers like ours, and to date, his charity has raised more than $2,500,000. Thanks to Mr. Dedoussis for organizing this!

  • Oodles of Noodles! 
     
    On behalf of the Student Council, Mr. Jones and Mrs. Weber would like to thank the entire Hilldale community for their support of our "Halloween Glowstick" fundraiser.  We were able to donate over 1,100 single-serve Cup of Noodles to the Homeless Bus!  We were totally shocked, and the generosity of the Hilldale families never ceases to amaze us.  Thank you again!

  • READ TO SUCCEED
    Six Flags Great Adventure!
     
    Hilldale School will be participating in the "Read to Succeed" reading incentive program for the fifth year in a row! Mr. Jones and Mrs. Weber will be employing the help of the Student Council to get the word out.  The reading incentive program is completely voluntary, but we are encouraging all students to participate.  Students can either read on their own, or have books read to them.  Read to Succeed forms MUST be handed in by Wednesday, February 24, 2017.

    A quick summary of the Read to Succeed program is below:

    * This is an individual contest.  Last year, we had 140 students participate, so we're looking for even more readers this year!
    * Students must complete 6 hours of recreational reading at home by February 24, 2017.  The Reading Log was sent home on November 14, so students have 102 days to read six hours...that comes to about 3-1/2 minutes a night - everyone can do that!
    * Log the date, book title, time, and have parents initial the Student Reading Log each time you read at home.
    * Once students have completed 6 hours of reading, they must have a parent sign at the bottom and return it to school by February 24.
    * Participating students will receive 1 free ticket to Six Flags Great Adventure for the summer of 2017.  
    * Read the Parent Letter that was sent home on 11/14/16 for more information.
