From the Principal

Dear Hillendale,

This week was highlighted for our 3rd graders with our annual Read-a-Thon on Friday night. With the theme of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, our 3rd grade students spent the night in Willy Wonka’s factory playing games, navigating obstacle courses, and enjoying fun activities. Thanks to the wonderful parents who made the night possible!

Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for April 10-12. If you have not done so already, be sure to sign up for conferences with your child's teachers.

PSSAs are coming soon for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. The schedule for PSSAs is as follows.

  • ELA - April 23, 24, and 26
  • Math - April 29, 30
  • Science - May 1, 2 (4th grade only)

Have a great week!

Mr. Audevard

Dedicated to Learning

This past Monday, educators from Longwood Gardens came to Hillendale to visit our 1st grade classes. Working with our Longwood visitors, our 1st graders identified different types of seeds then used the magnifying glass to observe the seed coat and the new plant inside of the seed. Each student even got to plant seeds to take home with them! It was a wonderful morning of learning for our students and a great example of Unionville-Chadds Ford’s partnership with Longwood Gardens.

1st graders explore seeds with our partners from Longwood Gardens.
