Students taking Academy INC or Project INC classes at the Innovative Learning Center will learn how to run a business and then create their own company. One part of being a responsible business owner in the community is to know what the laws are to protect consumers. This week representatives from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office of consumer protection spoke to the students. Consumer Educators Lindsey Coughlin and Danielle Murphey talked to the students about scams, how to avoid them and about deceptive advertising practices. All subjects any student would need to know, but especially those who are inspired to own their own business. Just an example of how Hilliard City Schools helping every student to be ready for tomorrow.
Quick, name one thing a school secretary does? I bet you can’t name just one. The hats the secretaries in the Hilliard City School District wear vary from day to day, and sometimes minute to minute. Debbie Kirk has been at Hilliard Crossing since the school opened. 21 years later, she still doesn’t have a set daily routine. School secretaries might often be seen on the phone with parents, but they also take care of tummy aches, parking permits and just keeping the school in order. From preschool to high school they care most about connecting with the students they see every day. Hilliard City Schools is ready for tomorrow thanks to caring staff members like Debbie!
The Hilliard City Schools cares about your student and that includes making sure your student is safe coming to and from school. There are 8,400 students on 126 buses each day. And those buses cover about 7,500 miles per day on the road. You can be sure drivers like Miss Fergie, who has been a driver for 29 years, and the entire transportation staff is working hard to get your student safely home to you. If you have any questions about transportation you can contact them here.
That was what she said to me, and I never forgot it.
Her name was Nancy Peterson (Mrs. Peterson to the seventh-grade version of me) and in that moment – for me – I felt it: magic.
The light bulb went off; the lesson made sense; my confidence grew. Read More
When a need arises, you can always find a staff member ready to step in. During the first week of school Avery Elementary needed a crossing guard. Director of Human Resources Roy Walker was there and jumped right in. Just one of the great things about the Hilliard City School Staff, everyone cares about your student. There is a willingness to jump in and get things done, because we care about your student.
There is a need for three crossing guards in the district. These positions are for two hours a day, one hour in the morning and one hour at dismissal. The pay is $7.85 per hour. If you, or someone you know is interested please e-mail Roy Walker. You can also call his office at 614-921-7000
What a big step it is to go from elementary school to sixth grade. The Hilliard Station Staff knows how important team building can be. Not only does it open the lines of communication, but the students learn how to work together. Today they spent some time outside making new friends and learning new skills.
It’s a simple color coded sticker Mr. Colby Hirns places on his students at Hilliard Memorial Middle School, but it represents a portion of a continent’s population. When students see how small the U.S. is compared to the rest of the world, their eyes are opened to an understanding of what his World Studies class will mean to them. Through world history students can learn the culture and development of other nations. In this class he used stickers to grab their attention but snuck in math and team building skills too. Students created equations to determine how many people were born each day and worked together to solve the problem. Mr. Hirn’s lesson: If we just learned about U.S. history we’d never learn how the global world we live in actually works.
