Hillcrest Green Team

**Please help us keep our community warm this winter.  New or gently used winter coats and boots are being collected until Thanksgiving.  Look for the orange collection bins near the front door and the gym and feel free to drop your items off when you are in the school for Parent Visitation Day  and/or conferences on Wednesday and Thursday, 11/19 and 11/20.
**Come and visit the table in the hallway near the gym to see how you can help the Green Team get Hillcrest a Water Bottle Filling Station!  We will be selling water bottles to raise funds, and they will make a great Christmas gift!  Stay tuned for an online order form, but please stop by the table to check out the details.


Celebrate American Education Week


American Education Week - Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility will be celebrated at Hillcrest School through the week of November 17, 2014.  This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize the importance of  public education, and in doing so, our PTA coordinates two annual events - Book Fair and Parent Visitation.    The Book Fair will be set up on Monday November 17, and ready for students to visit on Tuesday, November 18.  This time allows the students to browse through cases full of new books, and share titles with their parents that they would enjoy having at home.  The Book Fair will be open to families on Tuesday evening and Wednesday all day.  While you are at school for Parent Teacher Conferences, be sure to stop by the gym.  Parent Visitation Day is Wednesday, November 19 and is a well attended event that finds the students extremely excited to welcome you into their classrooms during a regular school day.
