When you start looking at your middle and high school students’ schedule for the 2015-2016 school year you will notice substantial decreases in fees for certain classes. This is due to changes the School Board made to fee schedules adopted during the May 11th Board meeting.
For middle school, 16 fees have been completely removed; these include social studies and some science fees. At the high school level fees have been removed for 49 courses, including world languages, math and performing arts. There are still AP charged course fees. Read More
In an effort to help save families money our middle school teachers and administrators have dramatically reduced the number of school supplies you need to buy for your student. By writing our own textbooks and focusing on blended learning in our classrooms our team has been able to cut out some supplies. We understand the costs associated with back to school time and we want to do our part to keep those costs as low as possible for our families. Read More
Many of you have noticed some of the lighting poles and mounting racks were not correctly installed around the football stadium. We want to assure you that we have been working with the installation contractor and the city to bring the project up to our standards without disruption to the start of the school year. The general contractor for the light pole project will be on-site for roughly 2 weeks.
We are not pleased that it has gone in this direction; but we insist that it be done correctly. We will stay on top of this until the job is complete and up to our standards. Thank you for your support as we work through this issue.
Students and parents are invited to join the Hilliard City Schools Transportation Services for a First Time Riders Open House. This fun-filled event will allow students who are new to riding a school bus to:
- explore a school bus up close;
- learn about bus safety;
- take a ride;
- meet “Buster the Bus”; and,
- capture that first bus ride moment on camera!
Stop by anytime from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, August 8 at Hilliard Heritage Middle School, 5670 Scioto Darby Road in Hilliard.
Here is a video we did last year explaining the 5th grade capstone project. As more families enter 5th grade this year we thought it would make for a great Throwback Thursday post!
