Good Morning Hillcrest Families and Friends!

We are off to an exciting start after spring break, coming back to an eclipse and a nearly full day of a power outage at Hillcrest on Monday!  Because we had backup emergency lighting that kicked in as well as lots of natural light throughout our building, we were able to maintain a relatively normal day.  Our students and staff handled it amazingly well and showed such high levels of flexibility.  That being said, we are hoping for a more normal week ahead!

 

CMAS SCHEDULE UPDATES

Because of our unusual start back, we have postponed the state CMAS test for our third, fourth and fifth graders to begin on Wednesday, April 10th, instead of Tuesday, April 9th. 

 

KINDERGARTEN AND FIFTH GRADE CONTINUATION PICTURES

Traditionally, the transition from kindergarten to first grade, and fifth grade to sixth grade is marked by a small celebratory event, known as “continuation”. This Friday, April 12, all kindergarten and fifth grade students will get their pictures taken for continuation certificates.  This year we will not be having students wear caps and gowns for pictures, so please plan accordingly.

 

YEARBOOKS!  LAST CHANCE TO PURCHASE!

Don’t miss out on purchasing a Hillcrest yearbook this year!  You can visit MYMJTHOMAS.COM, Yearbook ID code: HILLCRESTYB24 to purchase by April 15th!

 

LOST AND FOUND

Our lost and found is overflowing!  We will be encouraging all students to stop by the lost and found to collect any missing any over the next two weeks.  Any remaining items will be donated on Friday, April 19th.
