Dear Hillside Families,
Thank you for assisting the Hillside Organization of Parents & Educators “HOPE" (also known as the Hillside PTO ) Nominations Committee with your suggestions and nominations of possible candidates. At this time, we wanted to share details regarding this year’s election process of Board Members for the 2016-2017 school year. Additionally, we are excited to announce the current slate of nominees for each position and share their Candidate Statements. Please click here to download a PDF to Meet The Candidates

1st Day School Supply Kits

Avoid the hassle of shopping for school supplies and order a complete kit for your child that will be delivered to his or her classroom at back to school night. Visit to place your order before the June 30th deadline.

Be Involved

We’re already thinking about PTO committee chairs for next year and hope you will consider lending your time and expertise. All you need is a desire to share your skills, make a difference, work collaboratively toward shared goals, and the willingness to commit a few hours from your schedule. A list of PTO volunteer opportunities for next year will be available soon.  For questions in the meantime, please contact Carol at

Grocery Card Link-Up
If you did not get a chance to provide your Harris Teeter or Giant grocery card numbers to our Grocery Card Link-Up Chair, Ginger Rogers, please link your cards on-line or in the stores right away using our codes: Harris Teeter - Hillside ES TIE code is 5196; Giant code is 03607. We have two fewer grocery stores participating in the program this year, so we need as many parent cards linked as possible. Thanks for your help!

Hillside PTO Logo  
Please join the Hillside PTO to ensure that we can continue to provide educational enrichment activities for our children and programs that strengthen our parent-teacher community.  

The $20 annual family membership fee supplements the main source of PTO revenue that is generated by fundraising activities during the year.  The PTO budget is allocated to a wide variety of PTO-sponsored events and services that would not be possible otherwise, and that directly benefit ALL of our children, our families and the faculty.

Show your HAWK PRIDE by displaying our Hillside PTO car magnet that you will receive free when you join the PTO.    (One magnet per family. Additional magnets are available for purchase in the Spirit Store.)

Thank you for your support!  We are looking forward to a great year getting to know you and supporting Hillside.

-- Carol Williams Nickelson and David Nickelson, Hillside PTO Co-Presidents
