Enhanced and strengthened by the talents of all residents as developed and nurtured through our dedicated Pre K-12 Hinsdale School District; 
Enriched by new residents and businesses attracted by the quality of the education and experiences provided to our youth to realize their full potential. Within our community children will be able to intellectually flourish and develop their paths towards becoming good citizens and contributing members of society; 
Secure in the availability of the financial and volunteer resources 
necessary to sustain this vision. 

Values:

To honor, treasure and nurture the gifts of each and every child in our community without any distinction to race, religion, ethnic heritage, 
disability, economic standing, gender identity or any other such 
characteristic;  

To respect the responsibilities of the elected officials and employed 
professionals engaged in the administration of the Hinsdale School District;

To be respectful fiduciaries of the resources entrusted to our stewardship to assure their use in accordance with the intentions of all donors and 
grantors;

ABOUT THE HINSDALE 5TH GRADE WALL TILE PROJECT

 

In 2018, upon the opening of the new addition to the Hinsdale Elementary School, the Hinsdale Education Foundation (HEF) launched the 5th Grade Wall Tile Project.

Through this project every 5th grade student designs a tile that will be part of a class display to be permanently installed in the corridor of the new addition.

Eight wall sections have been designated to extend this project to include the 5th grade classes thru 2026.   This schedule will provide for the participation of every Pre-K thru 5th grade student in school when the new addition opened.

On DARE Graduation day in 2019 the first 5th Grade Display was unveiled.  Thirty-eight students each created a tile design to express the theme “Helping Hands”.  The resulting display is a fascinating presentation of the generosity and creativity of the class. 

The process of collaborating as a class on setting a theme, then creating a design to present that theme, develops skills essential to success in the higher grades and in life in general.

The tile project provides a meaningful way for 5th graders to mark their graduation to Middle School.  Making a personal and permanent contribution to the building recognizes the maturity level they have achieved.
