Deanna G. Taylor Academy students were treated to a baked potato bar on Wednesday, December 6th, 2023, by none other than @maschiofood! The bar consisted of baked potatoes, adobo chicken, cheese sauce, toppings, herb breadsticks, and slushy cups! Maschio's continues to serve our students gourmet meals and make us hungry. Swipe left to see flyers for the upcoming chef days here in Hillside Public Schools!

Hey Hillside, did you know that it's American Education Week? American Education Week happens annually the week before Thanksgiving! "Each day of the week has its own theme, during which public-school community members and workers are celebrated! "Festivities honor the team of people who work in our nation’s public schools, everyone from the bus driver and classroom teacher to the cafeteria worker and administrative staff, plus countless others!"
Today we recognize and celebrate Education Support Professionals! Be sure to thank the workers of Hillside Public Schools wherever you see them!

Shout out to Ms. Altenor at Ola Edwards Community School for sharing these photos! Students collaborated to test how different surfaces affect the speed and distance of a ball. Students created a kick system to simulate a soccer kick on different surfaces. They tested a golf ball's distance after a "kick" on sandpaper, carpet, and "wax-covered" carpet to replicate a soccer ball being rolled on concrete, grass, and a gym floor! Students chose which variables stayed the same vs. which ones changed. Great work Ms. Altenor, Science Department, and all of our teachers for continuously providing fun, interactive learning!

Social media only allows us to post 10 photos, but that's just a small percentage of the number of images we have of Halloween here at Hillside Public Schools! Schools across our district hosted Halloween parades, including A.P. Morris, Deanna Taylor, Hurden Looker, and Ola Edwards! At Hillside High School, both students and staff dressed in costumes, and Mrs. Deutsch's AP Language and Composition students even wrote short horror stories! It's been a fun, creative day in Hillside Public Schools, and these are just a few pictures that capture the spirit of today's celebrations. More content to come! @hillsidehs_schoolcounseling @hillsidestuco @partycity @spirithalloween

We have enough photos from Pink Out Day to post about it for weeks on end, it's safe to say it was a massive success here at Hillside Public Schools! Here are just a FEW images of students and staff from each school in our district, as well as the Board Office. The best pink-out-attired school hasn't been awarded yet, it's a hard decision, but how are you liking the pink spirit from last Friday? :)
