Parents and Guardians can now take advantage of our Text Messaging Service that we will be implementing this month. Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages, straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and more.
You can participate in this service by opting in on Friday, January 13, 2017.
You should have received a text message. You needed to respond to this message to opt in. Or, at any time after January 13 you can send a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 67587.
If you did not receive the text, please first check HomeAccess to be sure you have added your cell phone as one of your contact numbers.
You will also be able to opt out of the messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”. SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.
*Terms and Conditions – Message frequency varies. Standard message and data rates may apply. Reply HELP for help. Text STOP to cancel. Mobile carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. See www.schoolmessenger.com/txt for more info.
Students in the ILC Media Communications class entered the Lights, Camera, Save, contest after completing a public service announcement requirement for their class. The contest aimed to have teens create an awareness video to help their peers learn to save money instead of spending money. The videos were submitted to local participating banks, and the banks chose our ILC students as the State of Ohio winner. They will now progress to the national competition and have the opportunity to win up to $5,000.

Hilliard Davidson’s Interact Club sponsored their annual “Color out for Cancer” event at Norwich Elementary School. There was music and activities in the gym, face painting, cookie decorating and card making. SportsClips gave kids “buzz” cuts or colored their hair and donated all the money raised back to the event. All of these activities were provided to promote awareness of cancer and to support families affected by cancer. Just over $800 was raised which the Interact Club will donate to Families for a Cure. Families for a Cure is an organization created by Hilliard families that works with our students and local businesses. Being Ready for Tomorrow means giving our students the opportunities to do something bigger than themselves, to help them find their passion for helping others.

The third grade classrooms finished up an economics unit with a sale of homemade goods. During the lesson the students learned that people are both buyers and sellers of goods and services. Part of the lesson included learning to spend money to meet their needs versus wants. They learned the importance of choosing to spend money on goods and services now, or how to save that money. The opportunity to create innovative products to sell and to make smart purchases prepares them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
