Word of the Week: PROCRASTINATE

Dear Hillcrest Community,

We are so excited to welcome our students and staff back from Spring Break!

We hope you've had a terrific vacation. We're all looking forward to the final quarter of the year, with all the excitement it brings. We kick off April with the PTA sponsored Walk-a-thon and ASB sponsored Spring Dance.

Our instructional focus this month is on strategically integrating higher levels of Costa's and DOK levels across the curriculum and teaching students the note-taking process.

Our Leader In Me Habit this month is Habit #8 Find Your Voice
