Summer Reading

Dear Parents,

Summer Reading assignments are now posted on the district and school websites under the “student” tab. They are also posted on your teacher’s class page. All assignments are due back to school by September 12, 2014.  It is important to have your child read over the summer to enhance reading skills. Sustained summer reading leads to higher graduation rates, positive self-esteem and confidence, not to mention it is just plain fun!

Have a safe and happy summer!

Attention residents of the Hillside community. We want to hear from you! Please take this short survey to help us improve our schools. Thank you.

State Testing Revised!

PARCC Pilot Testing:

A new test called Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers

(PARCC ) is coming to take the place of NJASK and HSPA.  The new test is scheduled to be given during the 2014-2015 school year to all students across New Jersey.  PARCC was piloted at HL, GW,WOK and HHS. Our objective was to test the technology and get some idea of the format of the new test.  The state has informed us the new test will require much more of students than just a test of knowledge.  Students will need to problem solve, determine the best answer from a number of correct answers, and other skills not tested on previous tests.  The Chromebooks recently purchased for students worked well.  Over 300 students were tested with very few technical issues.
