The fifth grade trip to camp is the most exciting trip for our students. Our Eagles look forward to camp as soon as they hear about it. This annual camping trip is part of the science curriculum. Students participate in fishing, archery, hiking, and canoeing. While at camp, students learn about landforms, weathering, animal observation, teamwork, and ecology.
In addition to the science curriculum, Camp Grady Spruce is a time for the students to collaborate with each other on different activities and projects. The relationships and friendships grow at camp.
Hillside attends camp October 7 - 11, 2019. This is an unforgettable experience.
Each year, our students travel to Enterprise City in Richardson, Texas. This trip covers economic concepts that are taught in the Social Studies curriculum. Students also practice math concepts while at Enterprise City.
At Enterprise City, students receive hands-on training and experiences over the concepts they study at school. Students elect a mayor, run the post office, run their own businesses, and manage their money with a "checking account."
