1st Grade Concert - April 19th

This is a friendly reminder about our annual first grade concert which will be held in the Hillcrest Gym on Thursday, April 19th at 6:30 p.m. All are invited, whether or not you have a student at Hillcrest! The dress rehearsal will be on Wednesday, April 18th at 3:00 p.m. Parents or relatives who are not able to attend the evening concert are welcome to attend the dress rehearsal. It is important that all first grade students attend the evening concert. You will not want to miss it! Please have your students dress up for the concert. Please, if at all possible, avoid jeans, sweatpants, or t-shirts. We do not expect you to purchase a new outfit, but find something in their closet that is a little dressier than usual. Students should report to their homerooms at 6:20 p.m. on the evening of April 19th. If you bring them earlier than 6:20, they can sit with you in the gym until I direct them to go to their classroom.
