I am so excited to finally have students back in the building. I have appreciated ALL the efforts of parents, students, teachers, staff, and district and community workers at the end of the year during remote learning.  It was a difficult situation for many. I was pleased with what we were able to accomplish with a short period of time to adjust.

What matters most to me now is that students will be returning on August 25th.  We will be functioning differently to help keep students as healthy as possible.  At the front of my thoughts are any negative impacts remote learning had on any given student.  We are determined to assess the situation as accurately as possible and make a plan to help students grow.

4 years ago the faculty and administration of the school adopted this purpose statement:

Hillfield Elementary is committed to fostering success for lifelong learners and confident problem-solvers in a safe environment.  Through collaboration, students will be enabled to reach their highest potential.

I can assure you this still is our purpose.  I have witnessed an extraordinary amount of effort and dedication from our employees on behalf of your students.  They will continue to do so. They will continue to adapt to the best of their abilities. Your students will see growth.

Thank you for all you do!  Thank you for your trust and support as we kick off a unique school year. I always want to encourage you to join our PTA. They will continue to do great things for our school.  Together we can tap into the potential inside each of our kids.
