Earth Month at Hillside Public Schools
On Thursday, March 21st, the ESL Department, led by Supervisor Evelyn Okparaeke, in collaboration with Ola Edwards Vice Principal, Azure Diggs and Math Supervisor, Rita Della Valle, hosted a ESL Parent Resource Night for Grades 2-6 to engage and inform parents of the resources available for their children specific to their English language needs. This event would not be possible without the dedicated teachers of Ola Edwards, Ms. Altenor, Mrs. Huynh, Ms. Rosamalia, and ESL teacher at Hurden Looker, Mrs. DeJesus who volunteered their time to teach parents about the valuable resources available to our multilingual learners both at school and at home. Special shoutout to Custodian Sunny and Security Guard Mel for all their assistance and to Maschio’s for providing food and refreshments. Being multilingual is a superpower and at Hillside Public Schools we celebrate and honor the diversity of all our students!

March Reading Challenge
Massive congratulations are in order for our Hurden Looker Elementary School Mock Trial students! Hurden Looker mock trial placed second out of 73 submissions in their most recent competition! "The triumph of sixth-grade Hillside Enrichment Program students in a mock trial is a testament to their dedication, critical thinking, and teamwork. These young minds displayed an impressive grasp of legal concepts and an ability to articulate their arguments with confidence and precision. Their success reflects not only their academic prowess but also their ability to collaborate effectively as a cohesive unit. This victory not only underscores the importance of extracurricular activities in fostering skills beyond the classroom but also serves as an inspiration to their peers and the broader community. These students have demonstrated that age is not a barrier to excellence and that with determination and effort, anything is achievable. Their achievement in the mock trial serves as a reminder of the potential within every young person and the value of providing opportunities for them to showcase their talents!" Great work, Hurden Looker! #hillsidenj #hillsidepublicschools #mocktrial #newpride #newpathways #newpossibilities

5th-grade students in Ms. Crisanaz's class at Hurden Looker Elementary School recently participated in a V-Lab with Students2Science! This week's V-Lab centered on the Candy Color Wheel and Mixing and Separating Colors. Students explored the relationships between primary and secondary colors as they blended and separated them using a variety of techniques. The concepts of diffusion, chromatographic separation, and the electromagnetic spectrum (visible light) were introduced! #hillsidenj #hillsidepublicschools #newpride #newpathways #newpossibilities

Regardless, Hillside Public Schools is incredibly proud of our Hurden Looker students!
