Do you find your kids chained to their devices all summer long? Join us on May 6th for our third Community Innovation Hour as we share strategies on how to make this a more balanced digital summer. We will showcase engaging educational apps, help you set boundaries on using devices and offer some alternatives when it’s time to shut off the device. This event is free and we will have free babysitting for children over two years old. The event will take place at the ILC, 5323 Cemetery Rd, from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
Over the next several weeks we will launch a series of videos defining the Hilliard Way. The Hilliard Way is more than a tag line; it’s how we ensure excellence for our students and community. In these videos different members of our school district and community will share what the Hilliard Way means to them and how this simple philosophy ensures that we are all Ready for Tomorrow.
The Imagination Network at the ILC features two very unique programs. These programs fall under the umbrella we title “Academy VIBE.” VIBE consists of several classes that utilize our green screen (television) studio and our soundproof music studio. Musically gifted students join to learn about the ins and out of sound engineering as they form their own bands and perform using cover songs and original compositions. Students with a creative side that see a future in the broadcasting or journalism field join to learn about video, editing, communications, and often join with the musical side of the class to create music videos and partner projects.

Unfortunately we must prepare for more than a fire or a tornado . . . we must prepare and drill for the event of a safety threat. It is the world today; we must be prepared for the worst. Read More…
