4K Welcome!

Incoming 4K students and families, please join us between 1:30 and 2:30 on August 16th to meet our new 4k teacher, Mrs. Tina Way and Mrs. Ellen DeMeuse, our 4K instructional assistant. Families will be able to see the 4K classroom and learn more about what 4K looks like at Hillcrest. We are so excited to have our youngest learners join our Hillcrest family in September!

Update on Classroom Changes

It is with a heavy heart that I share that Mrs. Cathy Siedenglanz will not be teaching at Hillcrest next year. We appreciate all of the love and care she gave to the Hillcrest community and we will certainly miss having her at Hillcrest. We wish her the very best in her new journey!

We have exciting news to share, too. We have been given another section of 3rd grade!

We are in the process of completing the hiring process for both of these positions and I hope to share the names of these new teachers soon.

Stay tuned...

Forms, Fees and Class Lists

Forms and fees will be completed online again this year. Keep an eye out for an email from the district, prompting you to log in to Infinite Campus to complete registration forms and pay student fees. An additional form will be sent from the Hillcrest office in mid-August, asking you to submit emergency contact information, bus rider information and review of the family handbook.

Class lists will be available in Infinite Campus mid-August as well. You will be able to log in and see whose classroom community your child will be joining for the 2017-2018 school year!
