Testing Tips for Parents

With all the talk of testing and accountability these days we want to be sure you understand who is being tested, when they are being tested and how they are being tested. Susanne Lintz, our Director of Data, will be giving weekly tips on what assessments are taking place and what families and staff can to do to prepare. Hilliard City Schools is dedicated to preparing our students to be Ready for Tomorrow and giving our parents all the information they need.

High School Students from all three high schools competed both against and with each other in a variety of math activities to help all participants prepare for some upcoming state competitions.

Kindergarten Passion Project

The students in Mrs. Walker’s kindergarten class at Crossing Elementary built birdhouses during their passion hour. Passion projects are student chosen programs they accomplish at school day. When students work in teams to address challenges, identify opportunities, and/or conduct research on a question they are learning to be Ready for Tomorrow. In this case the student learned how to read and understand directions, and how to work with tools while building their own birdhouses. We would like to thank Home Depot for this partnership.
