Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are thrilled to announce that between the Thanksgiving Break and Winter Break, Hillside will be holding our interdisciplinary program, Hillside Hallmark. From November 30-December 16, students will participate in this innovative program.
Hillside Hallmark is a chance for students to investigate something that they find interesting and do a deeper dive into exploring that topic. With guidance from Hillside faculty, students will spend their days investigating, using hands-on, experiential learning to discover more about a specific topic. Students will take respite from their traditional academic curriculum and tackle questions and topics that are unique and interesting to them. We expect the Hillside Hallmark to shape each student's world view and to provide them with thought provoking experiences.
Students will be required to keep a daily journal, take photos to document their experiences and present their Hillside Hallmark
Examples of some of the opportunities available this year include:
Creative Writing Workshop
Independent Studio Art
The Science of Music and Sound
New England in the American Revolution
