We are proud to announce that our One2One program is up and running and today students in grades 6 through 12 have an iPad assigned to them during the school year that they can use in class and at home. Our elementary students are also using iPads throughout the school day.

The Columbus Museum of Art and the Past Foundation have selected Hilliard City Schools to host a Community Cardboard Challenge for the second year in a row. The event took place over the weekend and involved many of our elementary schools. Students from the entire district were invited to attend the play day.
Students (and their parents) had the opportunity to play and experiment while learning and using their critical thinking skills. It was a morning of imagination, creative challenges, and cardboard fueled fun!

Ms. Santagata’s Writer’s Craft students were given the opportunity to personalize their work. They were able to listen to and study their favorite songs. Giving students a choice in their assignments allows them to follow their passions. They did the research and then presented their findings to their peers & principals in the Weaver courtyard. Their songs played in the background as they read with passion and purpose.
