Parent Engagement Sessions
Hillview invites parents to join us regularly as we address important topics relevant to the middle school experience. Our programming will reflect what we sense are needs our parent community has, as well as our goals and philosophy for middle school students on their path through adolescence to high school. Our sessions will feature presentations and an opportunity for parents to engage with members of our staff. We look forward to seeing you on Zoom, and hopefully in person when the opportunity arises.
