Since joining Hilliard City Schools earlier this year, I have learned the importance of “The Hilliard Way.” This idea of Hilliard City Schools’ success begins and ends with the people who do the work that supports student learning is one of the things I love the most about our schools. We have amazing people who greet our students at the bus stop, answer a million different questions on the phones and keep our schools safe and clean. Our teachers are at the core of the district and they create the excellence that helps every student to reach their potential. Our administrators provide great leadership and support to make sure our schools are ready for tomorrow. But part of the Hilliard Way also includes those who serve on our Board of Education.

Students at Alton Darby, Horizon and Ridgewood elementary schools talked to a NASA scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California via Skype. Hilliard Schools Media Specialist Christina Dorr is a NASA education volunteer. She was able to set up the Skype lesson for the fifth grade classes to meet science curriculum standards of investigating the Earth’s location in the solar system and exploring the universe. The students learned about the Mars Rover Curiosity from Sarah Milkovich, a scientist on the team running the mission. Being able to interact with professionals in the real world is preparing Hilliard Schools students to be Ready For Tomorrow.
