Hillcrest loves grandparents!

On Wednesday, February 13th, Hillcrest’s Lower School hosted a very special program to honor some very special people in our students’ lives. Grandparents were treated to songs and artwork from each grade, and snacks served by the 6th grade; plus, they were invited to join our brand new “Grand Cougar Club.” Over 165 grandparents attended, and we look forward to this program growing bigger each year!

“When God created grandparents, the world was truly blessed with all the special joys that make a family happiest…. For grandparents know how to do the things that warm a heart. They touch our lives with loving care right from the very start. Grandparents make the world a little softer, a little kinder, a little warmer.”
