Twas the Week Before Winter Break and All Through the School....

Hour of Code - December 11th!

The Hour of Code was a HUGE success! Click here to watch the video that will give you a glimpse into our Hour of Code.

December- Acts of Kindness Month

Two years ago we began a tradition at Hilsman of making December a month of kindness. Throughout this month, we encourage the Hilsman community to commit intentional acts of kindness toward others. Sites like Random Acts of Kindness and Kindspring have lists of ideas to help you get started. You might even want to take the 21 Day Gratitude Challenge from  At Hilsman, each classroom will have a Grinch, and the goal will be to fill the Grinch with hearts that have our acts of kindness written on them. Please join us in helping to make our community a kinder place during the month of December.

Project Safe Stomp Out Domestic Violence

Congratulations to Hilsman's Step Team for placing 2nd in the Audience Favorite category at the step show last Sunday.

PTO and School Council News

Happy December, parents! A few bits of news from PTO. First, as you begin thinking about your holiday shopping, PLEASE remember to use the Hilsman Amazon link for any shopping you do on Go to: and click on the link for amazon. This gives PTO a small commission off of your purchases (but it does not raise your cost for the items one penny!) This is a great and EASY way to support the school. Share this link with your family and friends!

Second, don’t forget that Yankee Candle orders can still be made online through the website until early January. These sales still benefit our PTO. Please email to be sent the link, if you’d like to use this for some holiday shopping.

Third, we will be doing a “We love our teachers” holiday snack event December 17th. We ask parents to donate cookies, snacks, spreads, and other yummy holiday goodies so that our teachers can come in for a tasty snack and know how much they are appreciated. Please bring your items in between 8-9 a.m.

There will be a Menchie's percentage night on Monday, December 15th, and one more skate night on December 19th. Please consider allowing your child to come out an join the fun!
