Please help us show appreciation for our dedicated and hard-working teachers and staff members! Similar to our efforts in the winter, we will be collecting gifts for ALL teachers and staff. On Monday June 7th, we will host an appreciation breakfast, decorate Hillside with student-created signs, and deliver our gifts!
Year End Gift Collection Donations
Participation in the gift collection is optional, the amount is at your discretion and individual contributors are anonymous.
Gifts will be collected for two groups until June 2nd:
- Core Teachers (about 20 people) Amounts collected will be distributed evenly across all core teachers. The donation amount is up to you!
- Faculty and Staff (about 85 people) This group includes ALL other teachers*, faculty and staff who make Hillside such a special place. A suggested amount is $10 per child.
* Includes special area teachers. A portion of the funds collected for special area teachers in the winter were reserved and will be paid as part of their year-end gift.
You may make a donation toward the Year end Gift Collection by credit card through our online form: donation form
To donate by Venmo, use the QR code here, or send your donation to our PTO Venmo address [@HillsideElem-PTO]. Please note in the “What’s it for?” section of Venmo how much should be allocated to core teachers and faculty/staff groups. If this information is not provided, the funds will be distributed between the groups as needed.
To donate by cash or check, please complete the bottom portion of this flyer and follow the instructions for returning to Hillside.
Once gifts are purchased for all teachers and staff, a small balance may remain; these amounts will be rolled into next year’s collection efforts. If you prefer to give directly to your child’s teacher or a staff member, you may mail your gift or drop off at the front desk.
Year End Appreciation Breakfast
On June 7th, we will host a final staff and teacher appreciate breakfast and deliver the year-end gifts. If you would like to contribute to the breakfast, please sign up here: June 7th Sign Up
In addition to collecting food for the breakfast, please help us decorate! We encourage all interested students to create signs showing their HES pride and gratitude. We will use these signs to decorate the school for the breakfast and to offer cheer during the final week of this nutty year! We will let you know where you can drop off these signs as the June 7th event approaches.
Please contact Jami (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kate (email@example.com) with any questions. Thanks for your consideration and enjoy your Summer!
