Welcome to Growing Readers! Hilliard City Schools knows that working together to nurture a love of reading will help your child develop into a confident reader. Our team of reading coaches and teachers have put together a web page with ideas and activities that will help to create a bond, and stimulate conversation outside of the school day with parents and students. You can check the web page each month for new topics and activities to do at home. It’s our hope that through this yearlong partnership with parents we will empower our students to be better readers.

Army Specialist Ben Harris wanted to give his mom a special surprise. Recently home from Afghanistan, he drove more than 20 hours from his base in Texas to surprise his mom at Scioto Darby Elementary. During a school assembly to learn about compassion, he came from behind the stage for a huge hug. Some of our friends in the media were able to document the special event.
