From the friendly greeting in the morning at drop-off or the cheerful goodbye at the end of the day, the staff at Hillsdale Christian Academy in Tampa not only cares about the physical but also the emotional well-being of each student and family. Emergency or crisis situations are traumatic for everyone involved, but children are the most vulnerable. They are naturally inquisitive, and many ask questions after hearing stories about the events at other schools.
As backpacks and lunches are packed and the finishing touches are put on the start of the day, emergency preparedness at school is probably the furthest thing from your mind. But it’s among the first things on our mind at Hillsdale Christian Academy Tampa.
I love Thanksgiving. The turkey baking. Potatoes flying out of the bowl because a child decided to pull the hand mixer out of the bowl before the beaters stopped spinning. The smell of piping hot rolls just out of the oven. Beautiful Fall centerpieces. Most of all I love the people around my table. The memories and places they all hold in my heart.
One way that schools provide more enrichment and experiential learning for students is by providing extracurricular activities. In addition to an excellent curriculum, Hillsdale Christian Academy also offers a variety of extracurricular programs for our students. Our Christian School in Tampa provides a chance for students to engage in music lessons, art study, competitions, and service projects.
