Silent Auction Items

In the spring, there will be a Silent Auction at our Hillcrest Carnival. If you haven't been to the carnival before, it is an indoor event with inflatables and games for the entire family and the event is A LOT of fun! There will be a silent auction in the library. You don't want to miss this! Here are some items that I have seen in the past: gift cards to restaurants and coffee shops, coffee/adult beverages, bowling parties, landscaping services, theater tickets, pieces of art, tickets to sporting events, signed memorabilia, massages, hair/beauty products, party packages, music/instrument/sport related lessons, etc. Please contact Thea Sheffert if you are able to donate a service or item to the silent auction.

Changes in Dismissal

Please continue to send a note with your child if there is a change in their dismissal routine. A substitute doesn't have access to my email or voicemail and I attach the notes right to our dismissal clipboard. If there is a last minute change, it is fine to email me. If you don't hear back from me, please contact the office. Keep in mind that our trusted school nurse, Susie, is no longer at Hillcrest. It will be helpful for the person(s) filling in if you remember to call the attendance line.
