The Husky Howler

Week of March 27, 2023 Issue 30

Word of the Week: FINALE

Dear Hillcrest Community,

We have a very busy week full of events for our students. We kick off the 4 day week with the Asian American History Project. Tuesday is also Spring Picture Day. On Wednesday we will cheer our Huskies on at the Math Field Day competition, and at the end of the week, we will participate in the much anticipated PTA Walk-a-thon.

We take this opportunity to officially welcome back our 5th grade teacher Mrs. Virginia Lee and cheerfully welcome the newest member to Hillcrest, Ms. Yuen Ming Lee - our new School Community Coordinator in Mandarin.

Wishing you all a warm, safe, and peaceful Spring Break.

School will be closed April 3 - April 7, 2023
