GE Day!

Hillcrest has been granted a Community Service Day from GE! On August 8th, a fleet of volunteers will come to Hillcrest to complete tasks in and around our building to beautify and organize our school. This is an amazing opportunity to complete many jobs in one day! Adult family volunteers are able to help out too; additional details will be shared towards the end of the school year.

Each year, all volunteers receive a free t-shirt with a student created GE Day design on the front. If your child is interested in entering this year's contest, have them complete a design and turn it in to school by April 13th. Four designs from Hillcrest will be sent to GE. From there, a top design will be picked for the volunteers to wear on August 8th throughout southeast Wisconsin.
