We hope you’ve been having a fantastic summer. As the end of July quickly approaches, and we flip to the calendar to August, we think we’re not alone when we say, “Where has the summer gone?!?!”
Once that calendar page shows August, you start seeing the school-related activities appearing. The first is probably our Back to School 101 event held on Tuesday, August, 8, from 10 am to 7 pm. It’s an open-house format, so you can come-and-go as you please.
Amongst all the forms you’ll soon receive in the mail, you’ll see some from your Hillrise PTO. We encourage you to take a few moments to read them, fill out the necessary information and stop by our table at the Back to School 101 event to drop them off. There will be board members and committee chairs working there, so please take a few minutes to say hello and introduce yourself. We’ll be there to chat and answer any questions you might have. (Especially about volunteering for a committee. We know the Volunteer Request form can be overwhelming, especially for new parents!)
In addition to collecting forms, we’ll have some of the assorted Hillrise apparel on display. If you’d like to wait to see the sizes and feel the fabrics before you fill-out your Hillrise Apparel order form, that’s fine. Bring the form with you and complete it there. There are lots of styles from which to choose — we’re sure you won’t be disappointed!
Enjoy these fleeting moments of summer and we’ll see you at Back to School 101!
