Dear Hill Families,

The holidays are a time to unplug and spend time with the ones you love. I plan on spending quaility time with my husband and our three kiddos over the next two weeks. From my family to yours I want to wish you a relaxing holiday season.

I look forward to seeing everyone back in the building January 7th rested and ready for the start of the new year! 2019 here we come!

Hugs to you all,

Shari Pawlus

Investing in the Learning of Pre-Kindergarten in Troy

We know that a high-quality preschool experience makes all the difference as children enter Kindergarten. That's why we are so excited to show you the progress on our new Troy School District preschool AND tell you about an important night where you can learn more.

In his week's WORLD CLASS WEDNESDAY SPOTLIGHT VIDEO, we give you a sneak peak at our new building and demonstrate what the "Troy Difference" means for our youngest learners (note--the building is even MORE complete then it was when we shot this video.)

If you have a child entering preschool, please make plans to attend our information night on January 15, where you can learn much more about the programs offered, how to enroll and what getting this "Best Start" could do for your child. Explore, Create, Connect at our Troy School District Preschool!

TSD Preschool Survey

A Dear ONE Troy,

We are busy preparing for the opening of our new Troy School District Preschool next fall and are looking for input from families with preschool age children. If you have children who will be entering preschool in the near future (or are currently enrolled in a preschool program,) we would appreciate you taking a moment to share your thoughts with us. Also, please share this survey link with any other parents who might be able to give input as well.

IMPORTANT: Save the Date If you are interested in our NEW Troy School District Preschool, plan to attend our Information Night for Parents on Tuesday, January 15 from 6-7 pm in the Troy High School auditorium. Details on this night and Early Bird Registration opportunities will be sent out very soon, but mark your calendar NOW!

Preschool parents, thank you again for taking the time to fill out this survey:

Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

We are Still Collecting Fleece for MLK Day of Service Project on January 21st


We need donations of 2.5 yards of fleece to make finished blankets of at least 4ft x 6ft. The width on fleece at fabric stores is just over 4 feet, so if donors buy 2.5 yards of fleece, that would be perfect. If you want to send in 5 yards or 10 yards or 20 yards, that is wonderful as well—the goal is to be able to cut into 2.5 yard increments. Each blanket consists of two pieces of fleece—usually one solid and one printed, but you are free to donate whatever you would like. Remember, these blankets will be used by children, veterans and adult patients, so think about patterns that would appeal to any of those groups.

Noon Aides needed

Even if you are available only one or two days a week!

Troy Food Service is Hiring

The Troy Schools Food Service Department, which is contracted by the Sodexo Corporation, is seeking friendly people willing to fill various vacancies within the Food Service Department that are responsible for providing lunches to the students of the Troy School District. Not to worry if you haven’t had previous experience, as “on the job” training will be available!

Depending on the school, the hours would primarily be during the middle of the day, and would range from 3 to 4 hours a day. And you would be earning some extra money while your students are in school! Come join our Food Service Staff by calling 248-823-5089, or please email us at ngervais@troy.k12.mi.us. I look forward to hearing from you!

Gayle M. Moran, Director, General Manager, Sodexo Corporation
