Hilton students roll up their sleeves for Eighth Annual Make a Difference Day

The Hilton School District and several community agencies recently joined together to sponsor the Eighth Annual Make a Difference Day. The largest national day of helping others through volunteerism, Make a Difference Day is always held the fourth Saturday in October.

Hilton students were involved in projects throughout the community, including: collecting electronics for recycling; sorting and collecting food for Hilton-Parma Food Shelf; visiting and doing activities with residents at Hilton East; making flowers for chemotherapy patients; collecting gently used coats, hats and mittens; sponsoring a blood drive; doing fall cleanup at Mt. Carmel House; working in a community garden that supplies the food shelf with fresh produce; and cleaning up trails and planting a tree at Parma Town Park.

Volunteers gathered in the cafeteria at Hilton High School both before and after volunteering where they enjoyed breakfast and lunch donated by the Latta Road Wegmans store.

    Hilton Central School District - Hilton CSD uses Video Coaching to fine tune instructional skills

    Hilton Central School District is in its second year of using the video coaching program, a program developed and implemented to improve teachers’ instructional skills. The participating teacher’s lesson is video recorded, followed by the teacher working with a video coach in a confidential environment to celebrate good teaching and identify areas for improvement.

    Participation is voluntary and involves videotaping two 10-15 segments of instruction, then meeting with the coach to determine one instructional goal to work on and strategies for achieving the goal.

    Jim Thompson, a Video Coaching consultant, is coaching the teachers. He has over 40 years of experience in instruction and his work as a school leader has been recognized both statewide and nationwide.

    The program was made possible with seed money in the amount of $25,000 from Senator Joe Robach. In addition to funding the cost of the program, the money was used for Swivl technology - a video reflection and skill development cloud platform.
