Hillsdale and the community have a few families in need of Holiday help this December.  If you would like to help, please bring unwrapped items to the school by December 17th.  Click on the link below…  Thank you!

Channel 7 came to our class on Wednesday and it was AWESOME!  The kids represented our class and school very well.  Looking forward to seeing our class on the news!  🙂  They said it would air in the next couple of weeks and they will email me with details.  It will also be online for those who miss it!  

Growth and Development

Our Growth and Development video will be Friday, December 7th.   Students must return the signed permission slip in order to watch the video.

Mbots coming to our classroom!

I am very excited to announce that I have received a grant for over $1,400 to purchase some Mbots for our classroom.  My husband will be coming into our classroom to teach coding and building of robots using critical thinking skills.  I am beyond excited to get started!  I will send pictures when we receive our STEAM goodies!  ?

I am so grateful for each of you! I have changed Math centers to Monday, Wednesday and Thursday because of Math focus groups. I am still looking for more volunteers. If you are able to help with Math centers on Monday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoon for 1 hour, that would be great. Even if it’s just once a month.
