6th Graders Visit Upper School

Yesterday, current 6th-grade students took their annual tour of the Upper School, in order to feel more comfortable in their surroundings when they go “up the hill” next year to become junior high students. They attended Upper School chapel, and then were shown the administration offices, computer labs, library, the junior high hall and classes, and the band hall.  However, the highlight of the trip every year is eating break in the cafeteria, where they are allowed to purchase any food they want, including the “famous” cheese sticks.

Youth Art Month

April is Youth Art Month, and the Lower School is having its annual “Strut Your Stuff” campaign.  Each Thursday, students who ordered a t-shirt featuring their art work (from their Artsonia accounts), are allowed to wear those shirts.  Hillcrest’s Lower School is proud of its outstanding art program, and we want people to see that everyone can be a great artist.  Featured below are some of the students from each grade who recently decided to “strut” their stuff:
