ARE YOU IN - SUPPORT YOUR PTO & MPAEF
The PTOs for Encinal, Laurel, Oak Knoll and Hillview, along with the Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation, are working together to make our schools the best they can be for all of our kids. When you support your PTO, you make possible curriculum enrichment, field trips, community building events, and well-supplied classrooms. When you support the MPAEF, you are putting more teachers in our schools – both in the classroom and in specialized areas such as art, music, drama, library and science. All of this makes a real difference in your child’s day and, ultimately, in their education.








Please support these organizations today.
Start by clicking here. PTO donations are due by September 24. Make your commitment to the MPAEF by November 20.

 
BUS AND TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION
Planning the School Commute - Classes resume on Wednesday, August 20 so parents should take a moment to plan their students' trip to and from campus.

HV 5th to 6th Grade Compacted Math Summer Bridge Program

As we transition to the Common Core (national standards for Math and English), it is necessary for incoming 6th grade students to have a strong foundation in three math concepts prior to entering the “Compacted Math 6B/7” course; this is the first course in the double-accelerated tracks. The three concepts that students must learn, practice, and show mastery in are: Decimals, Fractions, and Measurement & Geometry. The program is completely online and self-paced. All students interested in the opportunity to join the Compacted Math 6B/7 course are encouraged to complete the summer program. Completion of the Summer Bridge Program is NOT a guarantee for admittance into the Compacted Math 6B/7 course. If, as you complete the program you realize you are not ready, do not worry; there are many opportunities to join faster paced programs once you are in middle school.

The deadline for registration for this program was June 20. If you are still interested in your student participating, please email Willy Haug (whaug@mpcsd.org).

PLEASE NOTE: All students will be given an assessment during Camp Hillview to confirm math placement. Click HERE to go the Google Site containing all the Summer Bridge materials.

Individual Parent Feedback Form
Dear Parents of 2014 - 2015 Hillview Students...Do you have information that you would like us to know about your child so that we may consider it when scheduling them for their 2014 - 2015 school year classes? Please don't call for an appointment, as the sheer number of requests would far exceed our capacity to honor them. Instead, simply download this feedback form, complete it, and return it to Hillview before August 8 (sooner is preferred!). You can either scan it and email to the counselor, or return it in person to the front office. This form will allow you to share with us your student's academic stengths and areas of struggle, special needs or requirements, and so on. Remember that we do not entertain requests for specific teachers or academies, but you do have the opportunity to share with us the characteristics of teachers who work well with your child.
Elective Request 2014
The window for making elective and alternate PE choices for the 2014 - 2015 school year closed on May 28. At this point, you may contact your student's counselor, but we will be giving preference to those students who met the deadline. If you missed the deadline, you still may get your first choices, but your chances are reduced.

Information about our elective options is provided below.
