It’s hard to believe that we’re already thirteen weeks into the school year, and the time is showing no sign of slowing down as we count down the remaining days until the end of 2016. As always, our students are staying plenty busy with studies, sports, clubs and activities, and friends. As a result, there are a few “loose ends” — a variety of news tidbits — to share with the HCS family. Here goes…
Last week, the 4th grade classes held and participated in their annual Hoedown, a long-standing Hillcrest tradition and a fun time to show parents and friends how all their hard work has paid off.
In other (good!) news, Christmas break has been extended by one day. Originally, students, faculty and staff were scheduled to return from Christmas break on Monday, January 2nd; however, since that day is the federally recognized holiday for New Year’s, we will start back to school on Tuesday, January 3rd. No further changes to the academic schedule will be required to make up for this extra holiday, so mark your calendars and make your plans.
Next, the Cougar baseball team needs your help! We’re looking for Cougar Supporters to buy field banners which will help provide our young athletes with essential, quality equipment such as baseballs, new bases, deck mats, screens, mound clay, and other items and expenditures necessary to prepare for a successful 2017 season. Not only is this a great way to support our baseball team, it is also excellent advertisement for businesses. If interested, please click on the link provided under the ATHLETICS tab and the Baseball heading, or call Athletic Director Todd Montgomery.
Finally, don’t forget that the uniform resale store will be open this Thursday, and now would be a great time to stock up on your students’ uniform needs for the cooler weather… should it decide to show up, that is! Also, if you need to turn any outgrown items in for resale, please click on the link found under the UNIFORMS tab, and fill out the required form ahead of time.
