Dear Hillside Middle School Community,

Hello, my name is Jason Quartararo (pronounced Quarter-Arrow),  I want to welcome you to Hillside Middle School. I actually started my career in education at Hillside. I was a long-term substitute teacher before I accepted a full time teaching position in Moorpark. I previously served as an assistant principal at Santa Susana High School and  principal at Chaparral Middle School in Moorpark.

Effective communication and a strong alliance with our parents are priorities at HMS. We believe that a strong partnership between home and school leads to student success. We utilize multiple communication methods to work with our parents and research shows that with a school/home partnership, students will find more success in school. The school will be using the The Hillside Happenings, an online newsletter that will be sent to families weekly on the happenings at Hillside.

I am very excited for you to meet Assistant Principal, Ms. Christine Lobitz  and Mr. Thomas Buckle.  Rounding out our team are our wonderful school counselors, Ms. Cheri Toyen and Mr. Matthew Thompson.
