Hillside Academy for Excellence will be hosting Parent University on December 11, 2014, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Partnering with the community to bring awareness and information to our parents on a variety of topics is very important.

A wealth of information for supporting and nurturing their child

Childcare will be provided for children ages 3 and up. Popcorn and a movie provided. Children 2 and under will stay with parents.

Turkey Trot

Our first ever Turkey Trot was a huge success, thanks to the efforts and work of our awesome PTA!  We loved having everyone out, even in the cold!


Veterans Day

See our students as they perform for the veterans! Thank you to GRS-TV for coming out!


Our students participated in an event to set a new Guinness World Record for "Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day." Check out the PE Activities page!

Canned Food Drive

For more than 20 years, Garland ISD has worked alongside the Garland Christmas Association to help provide a joyful holiday season for residents less fortunate. Last year, GISD students donated more than 100,000 food items! This year, GISD is teaming up with the Salvation Army, Good Samaritans, Operation Rowlett Reindeer and the Crossroads House Food Pantry. Please help Hillside to help others by donating canned goods. Cans will be collected through Friday, November 21st.

Enriched Music and Art Auditions

Auditions are soon approaching! If your child auditions and qualifies, they are provided a permanent spot in the Enriched Music and Art Gifted and Talented Program. The February audition is for entrance next year (2015-2016). We recommend those who are currently taking part in enriched music and/or art as a "Promising" student take the audition since they are not guaranteed a spot in the class next year. While teachers cannot personally prep them for the audition, we are here for any question you might have or suggestion for a successful audition.

Students who are interested in auditioning for Enriched Art and/or Music may fill out an online application to reserve a testing spot. Please visit the GISD Gifted/Talented website and fill out an application: When you fill out your online application, be sure to select "Art" and/or "Music" as your area of interest. Application Deadline: December 5, 2014 (online application) Audition Date: Saturday February 7, 2015 Audition Location: Walnut Glen Academy 3101 Edgewood Drive Garland, TX 75042-6345

Grade Level Newsletters

Each week, your child will receive a newsletter from their teachers that make you aware of things happening around the school and reminders of upcoming events. Please check your grade level's tabs located in the "Activities" section of the website to access the newsletters online.
