What A Great Week!

It's so much fun to be in a place where everyone is excited to be there. This week at Hillcrest was another exceptional opportunity to learn about each other, learn together and have fun! We hope your children brought home stories of new friends, new learning and excitement for what's to come.

Stay tuned...

A note from our PTO - Parent Teacher Organization

Hillcrest's PTO is your connection to family events and fundraisers to support the work teachers do in classrooms EVERYDAY! Our PTO needs your support to make this magic happen.


The PTO is proud to sponsor many events throughout the year. We strive to connect the community, create fun times in a safe environment, and raise funds for our staff and classrooms. Please see THIS document which lists upcoming events.

All parents/guardians of Hillcrest students, as well as teachers, and staff are considered members of the PTO. As a member, you are welcome to attend the monthly meetings held most 2nd Wednesdays of every month, and are encouraged to volunteer at any PTO event. The PTO’s success depends on your involvement. THIS document is an easy way to see all of the volunteer opportunities and sign up to help!


We are once again continuing the “No Sell Fundraiser” due to the previous successes. Instead of the traditional selling of goods fundraisers where you sell items and the school only gets a small percent of the profits, the No Sell allows all proceeds to go directly to support our children, educators and school. HERE is a link to a donor form that you can share with family members, friends and your workplace.
