Can you believe we are already thinking about next year? Hillcrest staff begin planning now to make the strongest launch and the best year for learning and growing for us all. In preparation for creating class lists, please help us out with the following:

* If your family is not planning on attending Hillcrest next year, please let us know. An accurate count of students is essential to make sure our staffing is secured for next year. Remember, if you are moving, you are often still able to attend Hillcrest. Let us know your situation and we will connect you to the enrollment office if changes need to be made.

* Does your child have specific classroom needs for next year? Our classroom teachers work together to create the next year's class lists to make sure all students will have success. This includes looking at students strengths, peer groups and interests. If you have any information you would like to share about what helps your child be successful at school, please share that information in the form linked HERE. Completing the form is completely optional and will remain live until May 7th.
