Hillcrest Family Newsletter

September 29th, 2017

Message from Mrs. Lincicum

Hillcrest made the Freeman yesterday for showing significant growth in our Forward math scores. HERE is a link to the article if you are interested in reading it. This is evidence of the hard work that ALL Hillcrest staff do for ALL Hillcrest learners every day.

Excitement is building for our next Hillcrest Community event. We hope many of you are able to make it next Friday as we dance the night away. This is the perfect time to connect with other families while supporting the important work our PTO does for our learners.

See you there!

Parking and Traffic

Just a reminder to everyone who drops off in the morning - the circle drive at Door #5 is for bus and daycare drop off only. Please pull straight forward and drop off in front of the baseball field if you are using curbside drop off.

Thank you!

Bus Riders - Everyone!

Please review THESE guidelines with your child (provided by First Student) as we use busses for both before and after school transportation as well as field trip transportation. It is essential that students follow expectations as the bus drivers need to be able to focus on driving safely. Your support with reiterating these expectations is appreciated.

We take pride in our history, inclusive community and our collective sense of wonder!
