Here's why Sarah Boily is a Hilton Hero: "Without a doubt, Sarah goes above and beyond in her everyday lesson planning and teaching. She helps every student make a connection to the content that she is teaching, and spends countless hours planning and taking care of the little details that really bring history to life in the 21st century. She even spends time creating elaborate bulletin boards to acknowledge and celebrate world holidays and historic events that may not be covered in class. She helps to make learning meaningful and fun for everyone!"

Night at the Village was a night of pizza, pups, pics, games, and most importantly, BOOKS! The One School, One Book launch was a chance for families to pick up this year's selection, "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" by Chris Grabenstein. Families will read the book together over the next few weeks. The event strives to increase parental involvement, bridge the home-school connection, and build a true community of readers.

Yes, they're that good! Each year, the Hilton High School Jazz Ensemble plays for 25 min. on the Gibbs St. stage at the Rochester International Jazz Fest. This year, on Thurs., June 27 from 6-7 p.m., they will play in the Big Tent at Main St./Gibbs St. "This is a wonderful honor considering most of the events in this particular venue are ticketed, or require the RIJF Club Pass, and are usually offered to professional Jazz Artists/Groups," said Jared Streiff, music teacher. Mark the date and support these talented young artists!

MW Principal Dr. Marc D’Amico and Assistant Principal Steve Sorensen fell victim to an unexpected dessert attack last Thursday when Assistant Principal Dr. Laura Mayer willingly took on the task of throwing a pie in their faces. It was a sweet reward for the seventh graders who donated the most personal care items in a challenge with the eighth graders. Together, the classes donated over 700 items, including 120 bottles of shampoo, to the Hilton-Parma Emergency Food Shelf. In addition to the personal care items, basket raffles among staff raised $450, the 5 Buy Five Charity Art Show raised about $200, and Melos Café raised $150 – all for the Food Shelf. “Our school is happy to be able to help people in our community and to teach our students the importance of taking care of each other,” said D’Amico.
