SUPPORT OUR SMALL LEARNING COMMUNITIES!

Since 2009, the Foundation has offset district shortfalls by raising money to ensure that our unique Small Learning Community flourish at HHS. Most of our funds raised come directly from our families. We are counting on your support each year. 

 

Please donate today (payment plan option available) and please consider corporate matching if your company provides this. 

 

We are counting on your support to help fund: 

  1. Hillsdale High School Staffing for SLC model 

  2. Faculty Professional Development

  3. Technology support and science equipment 

  4. Grants to Booster Groups 

 

The 2021-22 Documents to Donate packet can be found here for information on donating to the Foundation, PTSO and Boosters.

PEACE PANTRY

PEACE PANTRY: VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Moving forward, we will continue to support 150 Hillsdale and Bridge families with food from Second Harvest Food Bank, Mi Rancho Market and our baking team at Transfiguration Church. In addition, we hope to break ground soon on our Community Garden to further support families with fresh fruits and vegetables.

 

Our greatest need right now is volunteers to make home deliveries or work the emergency drive through. In addition, there is a need for bilingual volunteer support to help greet families. Together, we can support all families. Hillsdale Stands Together.
