Portrait of a Learner Input

As you may be aware, our district is working on a strategic planning process with our community.  To date, the Community Design Team, made up of almost 300 people, has met twice to dig into this work.  This process is designed to be highly collaborative to ensure all stakeholders—staff, parents, families, students, business, and community leaders—are given opportunities to share their ideas and feedback on our district’s future direction.

At this stage, we want to engage the larger community as well.  You can read more about the Portrait of a Learner by clicking here for our web page.  We are asking for your input on the key competencies you feel are essential for our students.  You can view a list of potential competencies by clicking here, and you can add your own standards as well.  Please click this link to submit your feedback.  We will also ask our secondary students to give feedback on what is important to them.

Hilliard Education Foundation Save the Date

Spaghetti Dinner to Support Weekend Food for Hilliard Students

Feeding Hilliard Students is the signature project of the Hilliard Kiwanis Club. Each week volunteers pack five hundred plastic bags with non-perishable single-serving food items for distribution through our local elementary schools. These bags are delivered to the schools on the last day of school each week. The schools identify the students in need of these bags and distribute them to those students.

To support this program, you are invited to attend a Kiwanis Club-hosted spaghetti dinner on Saturday, November 19, at the Hilliard Senior Center from 4 pm to 7:30 pm.
