September 1, 2017 - This August, the District, in partnership with Hillsboro Parks and Recreation (HPR) and the Hillsboro Police Department (HPD), held the first annual HSD Connected Camp in which 20 middle school boys spent a week participating in positive, engaging and informative activities.
On Monday, the students learned about design and had the opportunity to print their own t-shirts with the camp’s motto of “Possibilities are Endless” at The Printory, a local screen printing and embroidery shop.
Tuesday, they learned about outdoor and water safety at Tualatin River Park and then went kayaking.
Wednesday was Police Day, where they learned about tactical training, Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), K-9 units, and more.
Thursday, students learned about the Fire Department and the services they provide, and toured Station 5; then, they had a chance to tour the Hillsboro Hops facilities across the street.
On Friday, students completed community service by spreading bark dust at Imlay Elementary School.
There was 100 percent attendance at the camp and students gave very positive comments about their experience. Many thanks to HPR and HPD for helping staff and run the camp!
