Welcome to Hillside Elementary School!

About Hillside Elementary School

Dr. Briean Madden, Principal
 

Hillside School is home to 360 students in Grades Pre-K-4, and 50 staff members each school day.

In an effort to educate the "whole child," our staff has developed new techniques in meeting the special instructional needs of all students while building student self esteem. Pupil motivation, enrichment and appreciation of all cultures and the development of the full potential of critical thinking are areas of concentration for our staff members.

At the Hillside School, in addition to educational programming, emphasis is placed on social growth through community involvement and commitment. Some of the worthwhile projects included, collecting food for a local food bank and Toys for Tots, and contributing to the Ronald McDonald House.

Minutes from our November 2 "Points of Pride" Meeting Now Online
Our November 2 meeting focused on Points of Pride - those things participants were most proud of within the Mount Laurel Schools. More than 130 community members worked in 30 small groups to identify personal points of pride first, and then discussed those items within the group to come to consensus on items they had identified in common. Here are the complete minutes from the November 2 Points of Pride Meeting.
A Path to Success 2030

The Mount Laurel School District has launched "A Path to Success 2030", a strategic planning initiative that engages our community prior to the development of a new three-year strategic plan for our schools.

I would like to personally invite you to participate in our Strategic Planning Meetings. Your perspective would be a tremendous asset as the entire community comes together for these important discussions. Each of our sessions will focus on a specific theme designed to gather your input. All meetings will be held at the Mount Laurel Hartford School from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., as described below.

New Lunch and Breakfast Menus Online and Improved

Check out our new interactive Cafeteria Menu. Breakfast and Lunch Menus are all in one place, and all schools are accessible through a drop-down menu. Hold your cursor over any item in bold and its complete nutritional value will pop up. Use the button on the top-right of the page to get Carb Counts on all menu items. It's a big step in our shared goal of keeping students healthy as well as wise! Please note that as part of our effort to "go green," lunch menus will not be sent home with students in hard copy after October.
