World War I, known at the time as The Great War, officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”
Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history and after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress changed the holiday from Armistice Day to Veterans Day, a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

popular author visits hillside
Popular Utah author Peggy Eddleman visited Hillside to talk about a writer’s inspiration. Her new book, the sequel to Sky Jumpers, will be in Hillside’s library soon. The Forbidden Flats hit bookstores yesterday just as Hillside’s aspiring writers got a glimpse of the inner workings of Ms. Eddleman’s creative mind. Students may soon use their own creative ideas to launch narrative tales in their language arts classes.

SOLAR FOR SCHOOLS
Hillside’s commitment to green practices is evident in multiple ways from the study of energy and environmental impacts to the daily lunch recycling program managed by National Junior Honor Society members.
Hillside is one of three district schools with solar panels located on our roof thanks to a statewide program. Solar for Schools provides the scholastic resources for Utah students to learn about renewable energy technologies through interactive projects. Students can track live data from the solar installations, compare the data across schools throughout the state, and measure the effects of temperature and location of the energy output. The energy saved since the solar panels’ installation in late 2010 is equivalent to 1761 gallons of gasoline, 2096 trees, and 34,587 pounds of CO2.
