BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND....BINGO FAMILY NIGHT!!!

The PTA invites Hillside students and their families to a night of fun, games and prizes. This is a family
event and not a drop off…no exceptions. Bingo night will be held on Friday, May 15 from 7-9pm
downstairs at the Community Center located on Hillside Avenue. The PTA will be selling baked goods,
snacks and beverages for a small fee. Space is limited….get your RSVP in quickly!

In honor of Mother’s Day, your “cost” to participate is to bring one (or more if you wish) from the list of
items below to benefit the Women’s Shelter of Apostle House.

      •   Baby Wipes
      •   Crib Sheets (new)
      •   Twin Bed Sheets (new)
      •   Diapers (Especially size 3 but they will take everything – even open or partially full packages)
      •   Gift Cards (i.e. discount stores like Target, Babies R Us)

Committee Thank Yous

Thank you, Garine Issasi – our Earth Day committee chair, for organizing the collection of junk mail trees.
The goal was to create a visual message to show just how much paper is wasted on junk mail!

Thank you, Cesar & Pasqua Garcia – our Budget Task Force committee, and thank you to our poll
watchers who helped facilitate voting for the School Election/Budget Vote.




Reflect On This…

Whatever people do, feel, think, or say, don’t take it personally. Others are going to have their
own opinion according to their belief system, so whatever they think about you is not about you,
but it is about them.
