From the Principal

Dear Hilltop parents,

We are off to a wonderful start.  It was exciting to see all our children back in the building and ready for an amazing 2015-16 school year.

Thank you to our Beachwood PTO for the delicious breakfast on Friday.  The staff appreciated the special treat.  We encourage all parents to join the PTO. You may do that by visiting the PTO page on our Beachwood website and selecting Join 2015-16 PTO .  The PTO offers many volunteer opportunities in the school and will be assisting with several special projects. PTO is still recruiting Room Parent Coordinators.  Please email Maria Bennett with your child's teacher's name, your name and contact information if you're interested in volunteering.  

Please take advantage of the online payment system. All you need to get started are a credit card and your student's ID number. You will not be required to use the credit card once the account is set up, but it will allow you to monitor your child's lunch account and what he or she is purchasing. You may still send cash or checks in with your student to put into their lunch account, if you choose, or have the convenience of adding money to their account with your credit card from home. Click here to log in to or set up your account. Beachwood Schools does not permit negative-balance accounts or provide credit.

Children need healthy meals to learn. Beachwood Schools offers healthy meals every school day. Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals. Click here for more information about the 2015-2016 Free & Reduced Lunch Program and to download an application.

Hilltop Doors are open to welcome students at 7:45 am.  Please be sure to keep your children safe by staying with them until the doors open at 7:45am.  3rd & 4th grade students go to the cafeteria and 5th graders to the gym for a short time of silent reading before homeroom teachers take them to class.  Please be sure they have a book in their book bag.  School starts at 8:00 am.

1. Obey the bus driver!
2. Go to a seat.
3. If there are problems between students, the bus driver may
    assign seats. This is for everyone's safety.
4. Do not throw things on the bus or put things out of the windows.
5.Trash and unwanted items should be put into the trash can.
6. Glass objects, sharp items, bats, balls, skateboards, sleds and
    animals are NOT allowed on the bus at any time.

We are looking forward to another fabulous week with your children.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
