Box Tops
Go Digital

Box Tops make a difference at our school, and this year they are going digital! Download the Box Tops for Education app and scan your receipt on participating products to automatically submit earnings (10 cents for each item) to Hillside. 
 
Your efforts help Hillside earn between $1,000 and $1,500 each year. Our 4th grade Student Council members work with an advisor to brainstorm ideas for how to use the money, and vote on the final choice, which has added up to not one but two Gaga pits for our students, and much more.
 
If you (or your kids) loved collecting the old Box Tops, we have good news for you: clipped Box Tops can still be submitted to Janet Pesto in the Hillside office, as long as they can be found on products in the grocery store. Our next deadline for submittal is coming up, so please send in your clipped  box tops ASAP.
 
Please see the above flyer for more details, and take a moment to download the app now! Any Box Top related questions can be directed to Dorothy Neagle at dneagle@ptsahastings.org.

Pace Car: 
Take the Pledge

In an effort to calm traffic around town and keep our kids and other pedestrians safe, the PTSA has started a Pace Car program, similar to Dobbs Ferry and Irvington.  Pledge to drive safely and follow the traffic rules, and you will receive a magnet to put on the rear bumper of your car!  Here’s the pledge:

 

As a HOH Pace Car driver, I pledge to:

  • Drive within the speed limit and obey all traffic regulations, especially near schools.

  • Share the road safely with pedestrians, bicyclists, and other drivers.

  • Yield to pedestrians who are within the crosswalk and at unmarked intersections.

  • Put my phone down while driving. I will not drive while texting or making phone calls (even making hands-free phone calls impairs safe driving).

  • Walk, bike, carpool, or use public transportation whenever possible.

  • Display the HOH PACE CAR magnet and decal on my car.

  • Encourage others to take the HOH PACE CAR pledge.

Follow the “Cheddar Up” link and become a Pace Car driver!

DeCicco’s
Gives Back

DeCicco’s has changed the way it collects receipts for the rebate program that helps our schools! You MUST take action to keep the contributions coming!
 
For several years, DeCicco’s has generously given back 1% of total purchases to local school PTSAs, based on receipts left in boxes by the door. In 2015-16, this amounted to $xxx donated to the Hastings PTSA, allowing us to fund many efforts for our kids.
 
Starting this fall, DeCicco’s will contribute automatically when your DeCicco’s card is scanned. You must make sure your card is linked to Hastings schools for your kids to receive this benefit.
 
If you already have a DeCicco’s card, it can be linked to Hastings Schools. You can do so by visiting the Customer Service desk in the Ardsley DeCicco’s store or by filling out this form, which is submitted directly to DeCicco’s Ardsley.
 
If you do not have a DeCicco’s card (or if you have lost yours), you may fill out the attached paper form and bring it to the Ardsley store. Blank forms are also available at the store.
