November Newsletter
Welcome to the month of November! We have had two successful months of school, just completed our first round of Parent-Teacher Conferences for the year, and held a districtwide Fuel Up to Play 60 event on Tuesday! We have a lot to be proud of, and continue to set goals and put forth our best effort so that we can continue to evolve and transform as the Holy Hill Area School District.

School News
Lots of ghosts, goblins, princesses, and ninjas graced the halls and classrooms of Friess Lake Elementary on Halloween! Our kids celebrated all of their hard work thus far in the 2018-2019 school year by wearing their Halloween costumes to school, participating in a parade, and some community building with treats in their classrooms! Thank you to all the parent volunteers and teachers for making our kids Halloween truly special!
Friess Lake Elementary students and staff have been fortunate to have the opportunity to meet and partake in performances from member’s of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra through our Arts and Community Education (ACE)  program!

Our first "Coffee With The Principal" will be held at Friess Lake Elementary School in our Commons area on November 13 from 9:00 am-10:00 am. Coffee with the Principal events will be held once a trimester in an effort to showcase all of the wonderful learning students have accomplished. These events will also be for community building amongst families, and the school. We will have coffee, informal conversation, and camaraderie!

October 30th was the Fuel Up to Play 60 Kick Off event at RMS. While the weather caused us to move the event indoors, the turn-out was excellent with approximately 100 families participating! Great job to our student ambassadors, staff, parents, and students who participated in our healthy food and fitness stations. A shout-out to all in costume and to those who brought jack o'lanterns.

The West Bend Daily News was present to document the event, so watch closely for a news feature!

This was a great event demonstrating the power of CommUNITY in action. You all made it a great night in the Holy Hill Area School District!

What's New(s)!
New District Website
Thank you for your patience as we continue to work with our vendor behind the scenes to unveil our new website. We received great news this week: our design draft has been reviewed and approved and we have instructed our vendor to move forward with the development phase of the website. We are currently working to schedule our training sessions with the vendor. Once our training sessions have been held, we will begin importing our district information into the website. Our tentative release date for the new website (which will still be located at hhasd.org) is December 3rd.

In the interim, please enjoy a sneak preview below:

You Shop. Amazon Gives.
Amazon Smile is a program where Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to H.H.O.P.S. It’s a super easy way to raise money for H.H.O.P.S. and you can share this information with your families and friends (even if they are out of state).
Step 1: Log into www.smile.amazon.com

Step 2: Use your current Amazon account email address and your password (YES, if you have
amazon prime, it will accept it when you log in!)

Step 3: If you don’t have a current Amazon Account create one (Name, Email Address, and
create a password).

Step 4: It will say “Choose a spotlight or charity or search all charitable organizations” you will
want to “search all charitable organizations”, at this point type in Richfield Scholarship and hit
enter. The first response should be Richfield Scholarship Association Inc. Select that.

Step 5: Start Shopping! It really is THAT easy!

You must log into www.smile.amazon.com every time you shop (there is not an app. for Amazon
Smile, so you must go into your browser and type the address). It will recognize your amazon
prime account so you will still get free shipping with Amazon Smile.

There is absolutely no extra cost to you, or the H.H.O.P.S. program for using Amazon Smile.
This year, both building principals will be sharing weekly Friday Flyers with parents. As such, we will be monitoring the Open Rate and Click Rate of the district newsletter, and will also discuss necessity at one of the early Parent Sounding Board meetings, to determine if all three are needed and/or desired. If you have specific feedback, please feel free to contact your grade level rep on PSB, or email Ms. Villalobos directly.
