A Message from Principal Tim Bednar
With 980 students enrolled, Hillside STEAM Academy launched this school year on August 17 and the staff was there to welcome parents and students with open arms . Because of Hawk Prep Days and the hard work of the Hillside staff, PTSA, and ASB, a high percentage of our students had their locks, lockers, books, agendas, and PE supplies before the first day of school.
During the first three days of instruction, teachers imparted important information to the students about their classes, character development, and how to be successful in middle school. The counseling department has worked tirelessly to balance classes and to make sure students were placed correctly into classes. As of Monday, August 22, 2016, we are ready to embark on the 2016-2017 educational journey, and we are looking forward to all the wonderful accomplishments of our student body.
Last Tuesday, Hillside STEAM academy was placed in a Lockdown at the end of lunch. The Lockdown occurred because of police activity near the school. Our students were never in danger, but they were placed in a Lockdown for precautionary reasons. The students were very well trained as they quickly and orderly moved into safe, locked classrooms. The students will continue to be trained in safety procedures as the year progresses. When you are notified of an emergency at Hillside STEAM Academy, please do not call the school or show up in the parking lot; instead, check our website, twitter, email, and phone messages. The police department has an App called Nixle. They will send you updates on any emergency situation in our area.
Thank you for a Great Start,
Principal of Hillside STEAM Academy
