Hillcrest Message

This week certainly was a good example of Wisconsin weather this time of year! Thank you for continuing to send winter gear with your children as we are heading outside whenever the weather permits.

Martin Luther King Jr Day is recognized on Monday. Many classrooms will have ways to recognize Dr. King throughout the day or even throughout next week. We DO have school in Waukesha on that day.

There is no school on Monday, January 22nd or Tuesday, January 23rd. These are professional development days for teachers and there is no school for students.

Culver's Night - January 16th

The January Hillcrest Culver's Night will be on Tuesday, January 16th from 5PM to 8PM at the Culver's near Woodman's. Be sure to stop by for some Nestle Crunch Swirl custard! The Hillcrest PTO gets a percentage of all proceeds from the evening. No flyer is required to donate.
