Social Action Club?

In Social Action Club, we try to promote and help the community. For example: donating to homeless foundations, so the homeless people can feel more comfortable throughout the winter year.

What is the problem that we are going to take some steps towards?

This 2017 winter is going to be a cold one. In December, to help the families those are not so fortunate to have nice warm homes. We are going to donate useful objects that will be listed below.

If you would like the opportunity to still contribute please keep in mind that only new items can be donated to Inn From The Cold. Here is a list of new items they are in need of:

  • new clothing, coats and accesories
  • new childcare supplies
  • new footwear
  • gift cards
  • new bed and bath supplies
  • new toiletries

Please see the Inn From the Cold website for specific examples and ideas.

Thank you again for your thoughtful contributions to this special initiative.

Sincerely,
Hillhurst School and the Social Action Club

Passion Projects

Another new initiative at Hillhurst School this year is “Passion Projects.” In the previous school year, a committee of teachers started planning for this initiative based on the question, “How can we connect our students as a school-wide community and increase their intellectual engagement?” 

Passion Projects give students an opportunity to broaden and deepen their learning while increasing engagement. Students have the opportunity to collaborate and work with students from different ages and classes from Grades 3-6. This enhances the sense of community at Hillhurst and also allows them to work with different teachers on staff. Some of the Passion Projects include: 

  • Scratch Coding Club
  • Chess Club, 
  • Foods
  • 3-D Printing Club
  • Photography Club
  • Robotics Club
  • Art Club

Passion Projects will continue to expand and grow as student interest does. Passion Projects take place from 11:00 AM -12:00 PM on a six week schedule.
