Change for Change for Orangutans
The Hillcrest Elementary third grade students want Hillcrest to help save the orangutans! Orangutans are almost extinct because people are taking away their habitats by cutting down trees. These trees are used for paper as well as making palm oil plantations to produce goods such as peanut butter. We can all help by bringing in change between Monday, May 3rd through Monday, May 17th. All donations will go to the World Wildlife Fund towards a symbolic adoption of a wild orangutan. Our goal is to reach at least $55.00.

PTO Staff Appreciation
We are so excited to be celebrating Staff Appreciation Week next week, May 2nd-7th. As you know, we have an amazing staff at Hillcrest that helps our kids each and everyday.
To show our appreciation this week we want to “fill their buckets”. At Hillcrest they continuously teach how to fill each other up instead of tear each other down, let’s work together to fill these staff’s buckets!
Outside each classroom on Monday May 2nd, for the whole week, will be a bucket for the teacher as well as the aides that work with your child in that classroom. The office, custodians, special ed and specials teachers will also have one, so let’s appreciate them all. Each day feel free to bring in a small goodie or token or your appreciation. We asked the teachers for some favorites or ideas to help out, feel free to use this for ideas for the staff that work with your child!
Consider sending in items:
Monday - Something to Eat
Tuesday-Something to Drink
Friday-Something for the class
Also, ITEMS can be brought to Chalk the Walk on Sunday.
Flyer with staff's favorites can be found HERE
