The Hillcrest Holiday Shop  is a volunteer-run event where children can do their holiday shopping! Students were sent home with a Holiday Shop envelope the week of Nov. 28 and adults can write in a list of gift recipients’ names and a budget for each gift for the student to bring with them when they shop.

VOLUNTEER: Holiday Lane Ornament Making

In-Class Volunteers Needed:
Click here to sign up to help

Holiday Lane is a Hillcrest PTA-sponsored project that includes a “lane” of evergreens that line Jefferson Street in front of our school. It is a special event that brings a lot of holiday and end-of-the-calendar-year cheer. Each grade gets to decorate their own tree!

We are looking for two volunteers per classroom to help students create ornaments for their tree between now and December 1. Volunteers should come prepared with all supplies. Think creatively, but economically!

Happy Holidays!

With over 2,500 gift ideas, it’s time to stock up on all of your gift wrap needs and begin crossing items off of your holiday shopping list, all while supporting the Hillcrest PTA! The funds raised through this campaign will support Academic Programs like school assemblies, field trips & in-class experiences.

After you register (Org. ID: 11126), you’ll be free to shop online and send invitations to friends & family via email, text or social media to participate (online orders will ship directly to the purchaser).

And don’t forget – the top sellers get to take a limo ride to a local restaurant for lunch during a school day to celebrate!
