First Day of School is in the Books!

The first day of the new school year was Monday, August 8th, and what a great day it was!  Teachers and staff welcomed many new faces along with even more familiar ones, and if the first day was any indicator, 2016 – 2017 might be Hillcrest’s best year yet.

In the lower school, both the youngest and oldest students seem happy to be surrounded once again by friends and favorite teachers.

Upper school students are happiest, it seems, in the cafeteria.

And teachers are studying up on the latest methods and information to pass along to our scholars.


No doubt, there will be many successes, some failures, good days and bad, and a little bit of everything in between throughout the coming months, but as always, it will be another unforgettable year for the Hillcrest Cougar family.
