The Hillbrook Walkathon Friday, May 3
12 - 2:30 PM


As part of Gratitude Month in May, the annual Hillbrook Walkathon is one of our favorite traditions - an opportunity to make memories, enjoy delicious food, and gather together as a community for a great cause! The Walkathon is an all-school event that supports professional development for our faculty and staff during the summer and throughout the year - all Walkathon donations directly support faculty and staff development, allowing Hillbrook's educators to participate in valuable local and national conferences, workshops, and summer fellowships. Our teachers have benefited from programs focused on all academic disciplines, social emotional learning, making, diversity, equity, and inclusion, the arts, technology and education, and more. 

I went to teacher training at Island School in August 2018 and now I am back with 14 students and a fellow teacher to share the magic alongside of them. Truly amazing. I never would have had the confidence to bring students on this trip if I hadn’t done the summer PD by myself first. The Island School focuses on conservation, sustainability, supporting underserved communities, and challenging their own growth.
-Annie Makela, Director of the Scott Center for Social Entrepreneurship
