Hillcrest Family Newsletter

February 2nd, 2017

Great week to connect to Hillcrest!

We look forward to connecting with families next week:

Coffee with the Principal is on Monday at 8:20 in the Hillcrest Library/Media Center. If you have any thoughts on a vision for Hillcrest school, come and join the conversation.

Our next Hillcrest PTO Meeting is on Wednesday, February 7th at 6:15 PM. HERE is the agenda for this month's meeting. The PTO would also like to invite parents to use this FORM if you would like to reach out to ask a question about any PTO events or suggest an agenda item. They PTO knows families aren't always able to attend meetings and this is another way for you to reach out.

Lots of planning in preparation for Italian Night is happening now. A flyer went home to families on Friday...there are many ways to contribute to this event.

Science and Engineering Day - February 14th

Science and Engineering Day is fast approaching! Thank you to everyone who volunteered to bring in supplies to make this day an engaging day of creating and building for all of our students. We still need a couple items and THIS is the Sign-Up-Genius link where you can see what we still need if you are able to donate. Items can be sent to school with your child and dropped off in the office.

Optimist Swim Meet

We are getting geared up for this year's Optimist Swim Meet held on Saturday, March 17th. Hillcrest parent, Bryan Bergmann will be coaching our team again this year and he will be at school on Friday, February 9th, to talk to interested 3rd, 4th and 5th graders about participating in this year's meet. Be sure to have your child attend the information session and grab the information packet Friday over lunch if they are interested.

Late Busses

Our busses generally run on time but occasionally a substitute bus driver may take longer to complete a route. If a bus leaves Hillcrest later than usual (after 3:50) we would send a school messenger to families to let them know that a specific bus is running late. However, if your child's bus does not arrive within 10 minutes of the usual arrival time, you can call FIRST Student at (262)-524-0667 and they would be able to tell you where your child's is on its route. If you call the Hillcrest office after 4:00PM, you may not catch anyone in the office.
