Emilio Umeoka the Vice President of Sales for Apple Education recently brought a team to visit our District and learn from our teachers and students. Members of their team commented on the strength of the Hilliard culture. They were excited to see the passion, energy and engagement of students and staff.
Our vision is aligned with our purpose. Unlike other places, we aren’t just talking the talk. Our culture and behavior is evident in our work. To quote one of the Apple Executives, “You guys just breathe this stuff.”
Yes . . . we breathe it because it is our core. Our hearts and minds are aligned. We embrace innovation and we have a true passion for growth.

Students in the Family and Consumer Science class at Heritage Middle School had the opportunity to work with the King Arthur Flour Company on a community outreach program. A representative from the company taught students how to make bread during a recent class. All the students were sent home with donated flour and yeast. They were asked to bake a loaf of bread at home and bring it back to school. The bread will be donated to Star House, which is an Ohio State University organization serving homeless teens of Central Ohio. Collaboration with our business community is an essential part of how we prepare students to be Ready for Tomorrow. We are grateful to work with companies such as the King Arthur Flour Company.
From time to time Superintendent John Marschhausen is asked similar questions from different members of the community. In an effort to share the answers with everyone he puts the questions here with his candid responses.
My son is a high school athlete. Our neighbor’s kids are in the band and always selling things and asking for money. What is the district’s position on mandatory fundraisers?
First of all, and I can’t be any more direct, there are no mandatory fundraisers. If you feel your child is being pressured into selling items or asking for money, please contact your school’s principal. We don’t force student participation in fundraising activities. Read More

From building a bench that the actors will sit on during the garden scene to creating a pirate ship, Tech Crew’s job is to make the director’s vision a reality. Read More
