Hill Cares Update!

Posted December 7, 2021

It’s inspiring to see Hill come together as a community to support each other. We had a great Harvest Basket distribution and assisted over 60 Hill Families. Each family received 2 boxes of food and a Wal Mart gift card that provided a nice celebratory meal, and food to last for the week of break. Thank you to our amazing community partners (Epworth Foundation, Abiding Hope Church, and Steck Elementary), and all our amazing parent, teacher, and student volunteers. Also, Team Marigold held on for the win for the Legacy Squad Challenge with 490 cans to Team Navy’s 292 cans.

 The Hill Community is a powerful resource for connection and support. Show your Skyhawk pride by helping us make sure all Hill Families, Staff, and Teachers feel appreciated in December by: 

Supporting Hill Families for the holidays:

  • Sponsor a Hill Family for holiday gifts. So many of our families are still struggling, and their ability to provide gifts is out of reach. You can sponsor a family for gifts. Sign up as a Hill Holidays Family Sponsor, to help make the holidays real for all of our Hill students.
  • No time to shop? Contribute to Hill Cares so that all families who request assistance will receive gifts for their students. 
  • Give gifts to the Gift Drive, Gift Drive Wish ListDonation boxes will be in Room 135 and 107. 
  • Do you need support for the holidays? Apply to the Hill Holiday Gift List, here. Hill Holidays Family Application.

Showing our Teachers/Staff how much we appreciate them and their commitment to educating Hill’s students during the nationwide teacher shortage:

  • Fill the holidays with cheer by contributing to Teacher/Staff Holiday Gifts. The PTSA will use all money donated to purchase gift cards for Hill’s teachers and staff. Contributing is voluntary. Give what you feel comfortable giving. 
  • Celebrate teachers in your own way with a homemade gift or card.
