The Husky Howler

Week of October 3, 2022 Issue 8

Dear Hillcrest Families & Staff

The Fall season is officially here. As the days begin to get cooler, please send your children with appropriate attire (light sweaters & jackets). Students will have the opportunity in the month of October to engage in Spirit Days, Red Ribbon Week, leadership development, and other fun-filled festive days. Across all classrooms, students and teachers are engaging in interactive lessons focused on literacy and writing skills.

Did you know that nearly 5% of children under the age of five have a food allergy?

Please ask teachers & our Nurse if there are food allergies before sending any treats/snacks to a classroom
