Community Day Next Friday!
On the last Friday of the first month, we host our Community Day. All events take place during the school day and we find ways to connect students across the school. We have buddy classes that will meet virtually or outside, we have a virtual whole school read aloud and we dance the Husky Hustle. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and all classes can play outside together, too.
We will have a whole school spirit day on Friday. Wear your Hillcrest Husky gear or wear some blue!

Air Purifier Update
In response to requests and feedback from families, PTO took a vote to move forward with covering costs of the purchased HEPA air purifiers for your child's classrooms. A total of 18 units were purchased and each unit was $239 (over $4000 total).
We are asking that anyone interested in helping to contribute to their child's classroom HEPA air purifier, to please send a donation to PTO by October 4th. Donations can be sent to Venmo (@Hillcresthuskiepto) or send a check to school in an envelope labeled to PTO for air purifiers.
If you have any questions, as well, please ask at firstname.lastname@example.org!
