We BELIEVE That . . .
Children are our highest priority.
Hillcrest must be a safe and friendly place.
Teamwork is an intrinsic part of a successful school.
Learning is a shared responsibility of the student, home, school and community.
“Finding the positive” keeps us moving forward.
Students learn best when actively engaged in a respectful environment.
High expectations within the school community are essential.
Leading by example is powerful.
We are a part of a community where kindness, trust, respect and patience create an environment for optimal learning, teaching and working.
Congratulations to our April Hound Dogs of the Month! These students are being recognized for their continuous efforts and demonstration of truly PAWSOME character. Please stop by to read the bulletin board in the main entrance to learn more about each of these spectacular students.

Online registration for 2016-17 school year now open
Parents are asked to please submit their child’s registration by Friday, May 13.
The online system (Infosnap), allows families to securely submit their children’s registration information, as well as pay applicable fees either at the time of registration or in August.
All returning families received a personalized email with instructions on how to access the system on Monday morning. In addition, information was sent home via backpack this past Monday. These messages include each child's personalized "snapcode," a password that lets parents log onto their child's unique registration page.
Parents who prefer to register using paper forms may download the forms on the Hillcrest website and/or stop into the Hillcrest School office between 8am-4pm. New families must register in person.
Finally, the doors of Hillcrest will be open to the community on the evening of May 5 from 6:30-8pm for our annual Open House. This is a low key and relaxed event that highlights our students work through colorful classroom and hallway displays. In addition, as part of a PTA fundraiser, framed student work will be avilable for purchase. Please save the date and plan to join us for this PAWSOME showcase!
