Hillcrest Family Newsletter

November 10th, 2017

Opportunities to Connect

Next week holds opportunities to connect as a community and connect to the important work taking place everyday at Hillcrest. Be sure to check out the PTO section of the newsletter for some of these events!

On Monday, you are invited to Coffee with the Principal. Family members are welcome to join me in the Library/Media Center for some coffee and conversation. This will be an opportunity for families to give input on topics that will be discussed at next week's Site Council meeting. The topics up for discussion are traffic flow issues before and after school and options for our after school programming. If you are interested in coffee or in giving input into any of those topics, please take a moment to complete this short survey. I look forward to seeing you there!
