Learn about Issue 58

State of the Schools

Superintendent John Marschhausen would like to invite you to one of three evenings of State of the Schools Events. The events will give all residents, parents, students and staff members the opportunity to learn about the direction our schools are headed and what this means for the community. “I’m excited to share not only the great things happening in our schools, but the vision for the future,” said Dr. Marschhausen.

Each night will begin with a musical performance from one of our student groups, and then there will be a short address from Dr. Marschhausen.

Monday, October 24th 6- 7pm at Darby HS

Tuesday, October 25th at 6- 7pm at Davidson HS

Wednesday, October 26th at 6- 7pm at Bradley HS

Each night will be the same so please pick one that fits your schedule. Please invite staff, friends, neighbors and family members.

Engage in Education

Each year, the Hilliard Education Foundation invites the community to join them for a special look into the amazing work of the Hilliard City School District. Known for its innovation, creativity and superior quality, our District is on the cutting‐edge of education and HEF is proud to support its efforts. This year, we are celebrating the arts! We will be featuring student performances, a student art gallery and interactive art stations! All proceeds will further our mission to continue providing innovative and creative experiences. Find out how to be a sponsor of the event or to purchase tickets.

Early Voting has Begun

As you know, the upcoming election contains important issues, and none is more important than Issue 58, the combined 4.5 mill operating and $50 million bond levy for our Hilliard City Schools. We want to remind you of a voting option that hundreds of our parents have already used.

The State of Ohio has made voting by mail (also known as absentee voting) extremely easy and convenient. By submitting a completed application, you and any other voting members of your household can avoid long lines, bad weather, and busy schedules to vote from the comfort of your home. Read More

International Flag Dedication

Ridgewood Elementary School invited all of their English Language Learner (ELL) students and their families to attend an International Flag Dedication Celebration! This year opened with nine new flags flying in the entrance. The new flags represent the different countries from which our ELL students come: Mexico, China, Cambodia, Iraq, Palestine, Senegal, India, Taiwan, and the Philippines. Tara Grove, principal, and Kristin Pease, ELL teacher, planned this event, with several parent helpers. Parents, grandparents, siblings, and even cousins came to support their ELL student and to meet new people. Many family pictures were taken under the flags of their native country. There was international food, a video of all the students, and short presentations by the students telling our audience more about their native countries. There was even an impromptu flag parade, similar to the Olympics! In Hilliard our diversity is our strength; it’s what makes Hilliard students Ready for Tomorrow.

National Merit Recognition

Hilliard City Schools is proud to announce 26 students have received recognition from the National Merit Scholarship Program. Each year, more than 1.5 million students across the country enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Of these students, approximately 50,000 or the top three percent are identified as high scorers who receive further recognition.

This year, Hilliard City Schools is proud to recognize these seniors as either Commended Students or Semifinalists in the National Merit program. Read More
