Don't forget to give your input!

We need your input to help us continue to grow the identity of Hillcrest. Please take a few moments to answer the THREE questions in THIS survey. Teachers spent part of our Professional Development Day on Tuesday answering some of these same questions for Hillcrest. This is exciting work!

Science and Engineering Day - Wednesday, February 14th!

We are so excited to host the Flight Academy again this year for Science and Engineering Day 2018! On Wednesday, February 14th, students from the Flight Academy will offer engineering design briefs to our students. Our students spend the day designing, building and creating solutions to challenges! Your help is needed to make this day a success...


Please consider donating supplies for the design briefs. THIS Sign-up Genius has supplies that are needed. Sign up for whatever you are able to purchase and send to school. We will be collecting the items and then sending them to the FLIGHT students to organize for the big day! We also need lots of cardboard, toilet paper/paper towel tubes and caps from water/soda bottles. We will be collecting those items on the benches outside the gym and any donations are appreciated!
