Two hour late start Tuesday, Feb. 20: To protect the safety of our students and staff, all schools will start two hours late on Tuesday, Feb. 20. There will be no morning preschool and no out-of-district transportation, including Sno-Isle buses. Buses will run on normal routes throughout the district. If your child rides a bus, it will come to the same bus stop, but will be two hours later than normal.
Through the Math in Real Life project, our students have discovered that our families use math in a variety of ways every day. But we want to discover more!! We are anxiously awaiting to see how many different ways our families use math. At this point the project is exclusively for 5th-grade families. We need your slides as examples for the younger grades so we can open it up to all grades soon.
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! It’s going to be a great one, and I’m looking forward to getting it started. One of the challenges we face as a school community is how to manage all the traffic, parking, student drop off and pick up, and busses coming and going, safely and efficiently each day. During the beginning of the school year we will still be sharing the campus with our Early Learning Center and all the traffic and parking needs they have. And, you have probably noticed the construction project happening in the front of our school. There is a lot going on! :) In order to make these processes run smoothly and safely, I’m sharing some directions here so that everyone is on the same page about how our system will work. Thanks for taking the time to read through this and also looking at the map I’ve created that helps lay out a picture of how we are planning to manage traffic, parking, and drop off/pick up. Follow the link for more details.
It's exciting times here at Hillcrest as we prepare for the addition of two new kindergarten classrooms. Much of the exterior will be constructed during the summer with interior work to occur when school is back in session. All construction work is expected to be complete in the middle of the 2017-18 school year. Stay tuned for more information regarding student pick up and drop off.
Thank you Hillcrest PTA, families and friends. Our incredible PTA took on a massive project, spearheaded by Melissa Rohr, and LOOK at the final product! Each student and staff member has a personalized tile on the wall across from the library. It's heartwarming to watch the kids and they look for the tile they created, the tile of their teacher, and appreciate the artwork of their classmates.
This is available to households with children who receive free or reduced price school lunch.
Hillcrest Elementary's one and only Kara Evanger has her kids drumming their way to the future. Drumming provides many benefits critical for well being. Drumming is a stress reliever. Learning rhythm can increase academic performance in math as well as increase the ability to think logically. Playing drums requires coordination of all four limbs boosting brain power. Drumming also helps to develop confidence. Check out the attached video!
