Merry Christmas and lots of holiday cheer!
Now that it is almost Christmas day, Hillwood Academic Day School, its students and teachers, are preparing for the big party on Friday, December 10. So, now is the time to get read for the talent show and another free dress day. There will also a gathering for parents upstairs with lots of food that students and their families will be bringing in to share.
We will also be giving presents to one another with the Secret Santa event that we do at Hillwood each year. Students pick a name from a hat and then either make or buy a gift for that individual. Zack, an eighth-grade student, has been appointed the Deputy of Santa at the North Pole, and he will be assisted by the sixth-grade students. Zack will begin gift-giving first thing Friday morning.
Parents are welcome to join the Hillwood festivities from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The talent show will be from 1:30 to 2:30. Students will be singing songs in Spanish, performing skits, dancing, and playing musical instruments. Even the kindergarten kids and first graders will at the front of the center room performing. The parent gathering upstairs begins at 2:30.
Below is a holiday card for readers of The Hillwood Herald. Have a safe and wonderful holiday, and remember that the school will be closed until Monday, January 3, 2011.
