Principal's Message

  • Dear Hillside families,

    I would like to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! I am so excited about beginning a new school year with your family. This year will be full of opportunities to optimize the learning experiences for our young Huskies.  With an increased focus on the whole child, we will be working hard to prepare students for their next chapters in life.

    School leadership and teams have worked hard to streamline our focus, create a shared vision, and make plans to ensure students are not only achieving at their greatest potential, but also growing in all areas and demonstrating great character.

    With your help and support, we are in for a great school year! We have several new staff members joining us who are committed to our school's mission and eager to be part of such a great community. I am thrilled about where we are headed.

    Last year, we embraced the idea being Champions for students- their role models, supports, advocates, coaches, facilitators of learning. This year, we will operate with a similar mindset of being Champions, yet doing it better than before.  With greater intentionality and focus, we plan to Level Up with everything we do. Let us all work together to Level Up, increasing and aligning our efforts on what's best for all of our students to promote their overall success.

    I can't wait to see all returning and new Huskies in a few short weeks!

    Your proud principal,
     Hardray Dumas
