The annual Hillcrest college fair for juniors and seniors just happened to fall at the same time as Homecoming this year, so college and armed services recruiters were bombarded with questions from the likes of Dory, Cinderella, a slew of Star Wars heroes and villains, and many more.
Maybe Hillcrest is the real “happiest place on earth”!
Today is national See You at the Pole day, and though Hillcrest is in the midst of a wild and fun Homecoming week, we can never forget that the primary mission of our school is to reach students for Christ while operating in a manner worthy of the Lord. To that end, HCS Upper School students, faculty, and staff were invited to participate in a campus prayer walk beginning at 7:15 this morning.
Prayer warriors met at the cross on the lawn in front of the administrative building for instructions and a time of worship in song. After that, individuals proceeded to 10 different stations, where there were signs asking them to pray for our school, our families, our cities, our nation, and our world. At the end of the walk, everyone met in front of the gym to worship again.
The goal of See You at the Pole is to promote both global unity in Christ and prayer for our generations. Hillcrest Christian School is committed to that goal as well.
Day two of Homecoming week brought out the sports fans… and some rivalries! We all still manage to remain friendly, though, despite the teasing and taunting.
Homecoming week started today, and Hillcrest’s campus has been overrun with heroes (and a few villains too)!
Girls’ volleyball is the most recent addition to the HCS athletics program; our first team was formed in 2012. In just a few short years at Hillcrest, this sport has become extremely popular among our students, with nearly 40 girls in grades 6 through 12 now participating.
Next week — Monday and Tuesday — all Cougar Volleyball teams will play their last 2 matches for the season. Both games are away, at MRA and at Prep, respectively. This would be a great time to go support our athletes, especially if you haven’t seen them in action yet, and cheer them on to a Win!
