The Husky Howler


Word of the Week - VIVID

Dear Hillcrest Community,

We are officially in the midst of festivities and celebrations. We are also celebrating the end of our first trimester and the accomplishments of our students. We hope you take advantage of parent conferences to get to know your child's teacher, get up-to-date information about your child, and to see the progress being made. Thank you to Ms. Gladys Adame and Ms. Yvonne Ip for the amazing Parent Workshop titled "How to have Effective Parent Conferences". Shout out to Ms Rodriguez for engaging the 6th graders in PBL and setting up a "Shark Tank", and shout outs to Ms Vong, Ms Luna, and Ms Hillman for implementing AVID organizational tools in their classrooms and collecting data for our school. I am proud to announce we will be honoring our first AVID Student Award recipients at Hillcrest

Save the Date for our Holiday Performance 12/22

Spotlight on Staff: Support Team @ Hillcrest

This week we are featuring our amazing Support Team consisting of:

Ms. Stephanie Ho (School Psychologist), Ms. Karin Salgin (School Counselor), Ms. Rocio Garcia (Behavior Intervention Assistant), Ms. Nanci Fuentes (Behavior Intervention Assistant)

These ladies really are Wonder Women. They provide students with emotional learning support, behavior support, counseling, and academic support. They come to work every day with a happy smile and immediately take on any challenge.

Our Support Team makes it possible for our school to respond to the needs of our 411 students. They also assist us with active supervision on the playgrounds at Recess and Lunch.
