Community partnerships are vital to the success of the Hilliard School District. We know that the safety and security of our students must be our highest priority. That is why we are so proud of the close partnership we have with our local first responders.

Sixteen Hilliard students competed in the local Hilliard Optimist Oratorical Contest, held at Heritage Golf Club. Coached by Hilliard teachers Pam Antos, Missy Brown, and Matt Carlstrom, students delivered speeches on this year’s national topic of “How My Best Brings Out the Best in Others.” Special congratulations to this year’s award winners: First Place went to Nicole Hampton and Rahul Manne (Darby High School). Second Place was awarded to Rushda Kamal (Bradley High School) and Abhinav Gadde (Darby), and Zahra Khuhro and Nathan Hampton (Heritage Middle School) took third place. These students brought home a total of $1000 in scholarships. Nicole and Rahul will now advance to the Regional Oratorical Contest, to be held on Saturday, April 23, in Brunswick, Ohio. Participating in any Optimist Contest or athletic league qualifies students to apply for the Hilliard Optimist Club’s $5,000 scholarships, awarded each spring to two students from each Hilliard high school.
To celebrate Read Across America Week and Dr. Seuss’ birthday this month the students at Darby Creek Elementary and Brown Elementary hosted a school-wide reading event. All students grades K-5 lined the halls and read for 10 minutes to celebrate reading and Dr. Seuss. Students could be seen reading quietly, while others read aloud to their friends. Many students even wore red, white, and blue and Dr. Seuss clothing. When students can embrace their love for reading they are Ready for Tomorrow.
Fifth grade student Nalah-Simone sang a song to her music class about a month ago. Music Teacher Joyce Brandt told Phil Nagy, a music instructor at the ILC about her and he was willing to help her make a recording of her song. He had the perfect high school student to work with Nalah-Simone. Cami Rice, a junior at Bradley High School, worked with Nalah-Simone once already and they plan to work together once a week. Giving students
the opportunity to follow their passions prepares them to be Ready for Tomorrow.

There will also be camp t-shirts, opening and closing camp ceremonies and lots of wonderful memories! Get more information!
