Author Visit and Book Signing

We have an author coming to visit!! On April 26th, Author Lynne Brunell is coming to visit

Hillcrest! She is the award winning writer for “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and her most recent publication Turn this Book Into a Beehivewill be available for purchase at a discount through Boswell Books.

Forward Testing

If your child is in 3rd through 5th grade, our Forward Testing takes place next week.

Please help your child come to school ready to do their best. A good night's sleep and a good breakfast helps them start their day on a positive note. Remind your child that this is an opportunity to show all that they have learned already this year. We don't want this to be a stressful event for students...just a chance to show how amazing they all are! Thank you for your help in preparing your child.
