It is with a heavy heart that this community learned of the passing of Ted Hilton. Surrounded by and teaching children… that is how most will remember Mr. Hilton. He was more than the principal of West Side School for 43 years, his presence and legendary stories at assemblies continued throughout his life with visits to West Side. Each principal who followed in the footsteps of Mr. Hilton, welcomed him back to ring the bell at the start of opening day.
As a district, we RISE Up to help those in need! Goosehill, West Side and Lloyd Harbor joined the Jr./Sr. High School Social Action Club who coordinated donations across all four buildings with the Townwide Fund of Huntington to sponsor the food drive from January 27 - February 10. Jr./Sr. High Psychologist, Dr. Beth Chase, shared, “Now, more than ever, families in our local community need food, pantry items, and everyday necessities to help get through this challenging time.”
For ten years, Teachers College (TC) staff developers from Columbia University have worked in partnership with CSH School District, providing on-site classroom demonstration lessons and professional development workshops focused on content and pedagogy. Due to COVID-19, these on-site lessons are now virtual and have not skipped a beat! Not only has Teachers College continued to support staff here at CSH, but they have taken it a step further by helping to support teachers with remote instruction tools.
Art teachers, Samantha Hayes and Colleen Beneville, inspired their art students to share thoughtful Valentines cards of thanks for US Troops during the school-wide “RISE UP” campaign.

Classes throughout the Jr./Sr. High were asked to focus on a certain pillar of character during the weeklong campaign.
