Hillcrest Is ROARING about “PAWS”ITIVE BEHAVIOR

Now that we've taught all of the ROAR RULES classroom lessons, it's time to start handing out ROAR TICKETS. We were so excited to see so many ROAR TICKET WINNERS come to the main office to Sign the Celebrity Book and Join the Principal's 100 Club. Each student selected a numbered paw and found their place on the P100 Board for a chance to win the Mystery Motivator.


The following children earned ROAR tickets for their exemplary work related to following our ROAR Rules. Congratulations!

There's no Book Fair like a Scholastic Book Fair!

8:50 Arrival for Car Riders/Walkers

This is a reminder that morning supervision does not begin until 8:50 AM. If you are an early bird; we ask that your child remain in the car until 8:50 when staff are on site. We also encourage walkers to refrain from arriving early as well. We want to ensure that all students are supervised when they are on campus. Supervision begins at 8:50.

Thank you for your attention to this matter!

FAMILY EDUCATIONAL TRIPS-

Attached is the form to be completed for Family Educational Trips. Handwritten letters are accepted, however this form is preferred. Please be sure to submit the form/letter at least ten (10) days prior to your trip, for approval. Please contact Debbie Kunzig, attendance clerk, at dkunzig@crsd.org if you have questions regarding this process.

1st Friday=HCE Spirit Days

The first Friday of the month is Hillcrest spirit day! Our spirit wear store is always open! You can order HERE.

Teacher Appreciation Opportunity

Help us show our amazing teachers and staff how much we love and appreciate them by contributing to lunch/ dinner on the long conference day, Tuesday Nov 22. They may be at school for a long as 12 hours!

You can still order pretzels for Wed snack for the rest of the school year!

If you haven't already done so, please update your information and consider joining the PTO. Joining does not mean you need to volunteer (though we'd love to have you!). Your support allows us to do more for our Hillcrest community!
