This Week at Hillcrest
It is a reminder of how important it is for all of us to stay connected to school and close to our students. Our work as a school is to make sure all students understand that each individual is an essential part of our community and our students are cared for by many people!
Next Week at Hillcrest
Thursday, February 22nd is an early release day for all students in the School District of Waukesha. Students will be dismissed at 1:40 on Thursday. Please note, if you plan to use the YMCA for after school care, you must register for that day separately. HERE is a flyer with information for families interested in using Y Care for that afternoon.
Young Rembrandts will not run on the Early Release Day.
