Thank You Hilliard Schools Family

As a superintendent, transitioning to a new school home can be unsettling and daunting. Not only does the transition apply to the new superintendent’s professional life, the transition is very personal as well. In addition to gaining traction and acquiring professional information about the district, the superintendent’s family is creating a new home and learning a new community. Read More

Hilliard Tharp’s Darby Creek Field Days

The student teams at Hilliard Tharp are investigating the health of the Darby Creek System. In preparation for a trip to the creek, the students have been discussing potential dangers to the system and how they can prevent the threats from harming the system. The Ohio E.P.A is counting on accurate data from the sixth graders. They are specifically looking for macroinvertebrates living in the creek. The teams will spend several days working to identify the macroinvertebrates to ensure they draw an accurate conclusion. This falls in line with the sixth grade science curriculum as students conduct investigations then apply math skills to evaluate and analyze data. After each team analyzes all data, they then send water quality assessments to the Ohio E.P.A.

Hilliard School Board Member recognized as most outstanding in Ohio

Reading at Home Summer Program

Students at Washington Elementary didn’t let a little rain keep them from celebrating their successful summer reading program. A medal, picnic lunch and extra recess time awaited those who read 22 hours and answered ten comprehension questions over the summer. Reading and learning to read are problem solving processes that require year round work. Beginners develop basic concepts, as they grow, students learn to analyze and evaluate texts to demonstrate their understanding of text. The Washington reading at home program is a collaboration of the PTO, staff and parents, all working together to inspire the love of reading. More than 230 students participated in the program.

Power use cut back to save money and help prevent blackouts

The Hilliard City School district was asked to shed electric use on Wednesday (September 11) due to a critical need in the power grid serving thirteen states and Washington DC. The district, along with thousands of other institutions and businesses, complied to protect the 61 million people served in this area. While major energy components such as our mechanical systems were turned off and may have caused some to notice a temperature change, it saved others from being completely without power.
