From the Principal
Last Friday we had our annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale. Students had the opportunity to purchase a plant to give to their mom’s for Mother’s Day. Thank you to all the parents who helped make the event successful.
Friday was a great evening with our Spring Fling! Despite dreary weather, the turn out was terrific as many Hillendale families joined us in the gym and cafeteria for food and fun. Thank you to our amazing PTO for your efforts in putting together this terrific event!
Last Wednesday, a group of 4th and 5th grade students participated in our district-wide 24 math competition. They did a great job and represented Hillendale well! A special congratulations goes out to William Du who placed 2nd among 5th graders in the district. Great job, William!
Finally, a huge Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mom-figures in everyone’s lives. You are the true heroes who keep us going every day. Happy Mother’s Day from everyone at Hillendale!
Have a wonderful week!
Dedicated to Learning
Learning stretched beyond the walls of our school this week as several grades went on exciting field trips. Our 3rd graders visited Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Eagles, as part of their social studies unit on economics to learn about running a large organization.
Our 1st graders traveled to the Academy of Natural Sciences to learn about dinosaurs in conjunction with their science unit.
Finally, our 5th graders toured historic Philadelphia to support their learning of history in social students. These immersive learning experiences were wonderful for all of our kids!
