Word of the Week: TRANSFORM

Dear Hillcrest Community,

Congratulations to all of our Huskies who were named Student of the Month and BARK Leaders for the month of March. We invite you to our Breakfast with the Principal on Friday, our school counselor will be addressing Children and Mental Health with a special focus on Suicide Prevention. On Wednesday March 22 all students in grades 3 to 6 will take a practice CAASPP test. The purpose of the practice test is to give students the opportunity to log into the testing platform and become familiar with the test format.

Leader in Me

Anyone who has read The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People will tell you that the very first habit Covey lists is to be proactive. Covey explained that to be proactive “means more than merely taking initiative. It means that as human beings, we are responsible for our own lives. Our behavior is a function of our decisions, not our conditions.”
