Hillside Middle School
The Luke Capistran Memorial 5k & 3k Fun Walk, Kids Walk
This event is held each year in memory of Luke Capistran, a former Hillside Middle school student who passed away from cancer at age 16. Luke loved sports and had a smile that could light up a room, he was loved by all who knew him. The money raised from this community event is used to send Hillside students to summer camp who, due to financial difficulties, would not normally be able to afford to go. Students are allowed to choose which camp they would like to attend. Luke’s mother, Deb Capistran, began teaching Math at Hillside a few years after Luke’s death and she, along with her family and friends, help the Builders Club keep Luke’s memory alive through this community event.
Wondering About School Supplies?
School supplies differ from teacher to teacher. The basic ones that all students will need are pens, pencils, folders, binders, and notebooks. More information is usually sent home the first day of school from the individual teachers.
Teachers are always grateful for donations of tissues, disinfecting wipes, and hand sanitizer.
All students will need a lock for their locker, this should be brought in by the second week of school.
Fall Soccer: We are currently working on providing both boys and girls soccer at our middle schools. Details are currently being worked on. We expect to be able to provide more information once school starts.
