    Term One Report Cards go home on February 4, 2015
    Assessment is an important part of our learning at Hilson.  Instruction, assessment and evaluation in today’s classrooms support multiple learning goals. Students need to learn more than facts – they must acquire 21st century skills such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
    The OCDSB has created a fantastic guide for parents which offers clear, meaningful information about assessment, evaluation and reporting.  Please click on the link below to learn more about assessment and evaluation in the OCDSB.  This guide will also 
    provide you with tips on how to communicate with your child and their teachers and
    answers some of the most common questions you may have regarding your child’s education. 

    100 Years of Learning!


    7pm Oct 22, 2014

    Dear Parents/ Guardians
    Thank you for your incredible support throughout the day. Our staff members were amazing at creating a supportive environment throughout the day, with a clear focus on learning. As always, our number one priority is student wellness and safety.
    Although our office was very busy today, we tried very hard to keep things as normal as possible for the children.  There will be a mass Synervoice phone call to all families in the OCDSB regarding the day’s events. The message will include resources to assist parents in speaking with your children.
    Please have a well-deserved restful night with your children.
    Lisa Clayton
