Dear Parents/Guardians,

December is upon us along with plans for Christmas activities and events at Hillsborough Elementary School. First, let me say thank you for coming to Parent/Teacher interviews this past week.  Communicating about your child’s progress is an important part of supporting student learning.

As we prepare for the winter season and the potential for snow storms, please be sure you have returned the information sheet regarding contingency plans should schools close early due to weather or other unexpected situations.

       The Home and School pie order has been placed. Thank you to all those who sold pies and to those who ordered pies.  The pies will be delivered on Thursday, Dec. 8th. The truck will be at the school from 3pm-7pm. Please stop by to pick up your child’s pie order.  We will have copies of the orders there.  THANK YOU for all your support! Winners will be announced soon!  A few more notes from the Home and School Association:

  • Home and School information can be found on Facebook by searching for Hillsborough Home and School Association.

  • Please consider becoming a member. A table will be set up at the Christmas concert so parents can join.

  • Tickets for front row seating at the Christmas Concert will be sold by the H&S the evening of the concert  ($2 for one ticket or $5 for three)

  • H&S will be organizing the Shopping Party on Dec. 19th – Please send in gently used items before this date. Our students enjoy shopping for family and friends at this event! Each item will be .50 (Max number of items K-2 will be 6 and Gr 3-5 will be 6-8. This number could change depending on how many items come in.) If you can volunteer for this event, please contact the school at 734-3700 or Angela Barkhouse at abarkhouse@rogers.com

Again this year, Anglophone East will support local food banks with their “Fill the Bus” campaign.  Students are invited to bring non-perishable food items to contribute to this event.  The bus will arrive to pick up items on Dec. 20th.

As this will be the last newsletter before the Christmas holidays, the staff here at Hillsborough Elementary School want to wish you a safe and joyous Christmas holiday and we look forward to your return in January of 2017!
