Our Lower School students outdid themselves in their World’s Finest Chocolate sales this year; as a reward, they were treated to a show by the Futboleros, a soccer entertainment team! The Futboleros performed various tricks with their soccer balls and encouraged the students to believe in themselves. Then, in a game of Teachers versus Futboleros, our teachers won!
Congratulations to the following winners of the chocolate sales:
5 lb World’s Finest Chocolate Bar – Silas Chambers
3rd place – Calvin Ramsey
2nd place – Coleston Foster
1st place – London McKenzie
This past Friday, Hillcrest’s Lower School hosted its annual special program to honor local Veterans of our nation’s armed services. As part of the celebration, some of the classes sang to these special men and women, and then lined up to shake their hands and to say, “Thank you for your service.”
Brooke Boney, a 6th grader in Mrs. McNamee’s class, also read her original poem as part of the Veteran’s Day program.
Congratulations to our very own One Spirit One Sound marching band on yet another great season! It ended this past Saturday at the MAIS Marching Competition, where the band received all Superior ratings, as well as trophies for best percussion and best band.
Check out our K5 students having fun and dressing up as characters from their favorite books:
What a fun day! Today Hillcrest’s 4th graders grabbed their partners and do-si-do’ed their way around the elementary gym for the annual hoedown. Special thanks to Mrs. McDonald for her hard work in putting it all together.
