The students at Horizon Elementary participated in a new event at school they called Fitness Frenzy. This was an event created with staff and parent collaboration. Each student completed a fitness obstacle course. Empowering students to take control of their wellness helps prepare them to be Ready for Tomorrow. The day didn’t end at the closing bell though. The Fitness Frenzy was open to parents and siblings later in the evening. They used the evening portion of the night to bring the Horizon community together to help raise funds for their PTO.
Earlier this year Superintendent John Marschhausen shared with the community information about two grants the district will receive related to enhancing school security. Each of our 24 schools are receiving a radio that will enhance communication with the first responder dispatching services in the most serious of school security events.
Sixth grade students at Station are using a new tool that works with the iPad. Osmo offers students a chance to learn while also using their imagination. This picture shows a word game. This inspires students to increase vocabulary skills. Teachers can also use the device to input their own pictures and words to allow review of literacy terms and vocabulary in other subject areas. Being Ready for Tomorrow means giving our students the opportunity to embrace new technology and learn in new ways as they master curriculum.

On Thursday, September 25 our Hilliard community welcomed visitors from Belgium, the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to the Hilliard City School District. The guests visited many schools and spoke with many students and staff.They are visiting Hilliard City Schools because in the words of one official, “No one does it better than Hilliard City Schools.” These visitors are interested in how Hilliard City Schools is engaging students, providing innovative practices for academic success and encouraging our youth to be good global citizens. We are proud to host our international visitors and are excited to share the #HilliardWay.
