Request for Feedback – Family Survey
School Development Surveys are conducted annually to gather feedback from students, staff, and parents/guardians to inform the school development process. The survey results will be provided to your child’s school and used with other data to identify the school’s strengths and challenges. Your child’s school will then create and implement a plan to build on successes and address areas of challenge.
The survey is anonymous, which means that we cannot connect your survey responses to you. We encourage everyone to participate so that we have the most accurate representation of family perceptions at your school.
Please complete the Family Survey by Friday, May 25th by clicking on the following link: https://www.research.net/r/SDFamily1718EN. If you do not have internet access, you may contact your school to arrange access to a school computer or mobile device for survey completion.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the school development surveys, please contact:
Allan Johnson at 709-729-1126 or email@example.com or
Jennifer Smith at 709-729-5588 or firstname.lastname@example.org or
Patricia Emberley at 709-729-6850 or email@example.com
Thank you for your participation and for being a valued member of your school community.
Traditional Music Day at Hillview
On Wednesday, May 9th, our students will be involved in a full day presentation from four members of Lomond Sound – Hugh Scott, Dave Panting, Gerry Strong and Jane Dennison.
The group will be performing and conducting workshops in traditional music as part of Arts NL’s School Touring Program. During their presentation the group will demonstrate how traditional tunes, songs and dances are part of our cultural heritage and discuss their historical and social value.
Lomond Sound’s school presentation will be a full day event for grades 3-9 (grades K-2 will be involved in some morning activities). The day will start with an opening concert consisting of traditional Newfoundland and Labrador music, songs and dancing. The middle of the day will have presentations and interactive student workshops in song-writing, mandolin, tin whistle and traditional dancing. The day will end with a final concert with students and Lomond Sound performing together.
Parents are welcome to attend the afternoon concert – it will begin around 1:30pm!
Scholastic Book Fair - Success!
Our Scholastic Book Fair finished today with a big celebration. With your help, we surpassed our goal of $2100 in sales...$2203.35 to be exact...Yay! And, as promised, we celebrated the achievement with a "Pie In A Teacher's Face" event. There were four lucky students who smashed pies in the faces of four "unlucky" teachers - it was quite exciting!
Hillview would like to thank the parent volunteers who gave their time to run the Book Fair, teachers K. West and G. Power for organizing this year's fair, and to all of the students and parents who purchased items. Proceeds of the fair will help place literacy resources in students' classrooms and library.

Questions about Busing?
The NLESD has a number of resources available on its website to help answer the most common questions regarding busing. We encourage you to take a look at the site by clicking here.
There is also a bus safety video which highlights students expectations and emergency evacuation procedures. Our students practice these drills each year. You can view the video by clicking here.
We have also placed a couple of NLESD documents about busing on our documents page.
