Cougar Patrol

Part of the mission statement of Hillcrest Christian School is to “cultivate an atmosphere of joyful thanksgiving” (Colossians 1:12).  One of the best ways for believers to raise personal awareness of how much we have to be thankful for is to serve others.  For this reason, Hillcrest teaches its students from a young age that there are a multitude of ways to help not only those who are struggling, but even to “lend a hand” or to say a kind word to anyone who seems to have a need.

One of the many ways HCS promotes this idea is with Cougar Patrol; this is a service in which fifth and sixth-grade lower school students may participate.  Their job is to help hurried (and maybe even harried!) parents get their elementary students out of the car in an organized manner in the mornings before school and then to make sure those children get into the school building safely.

Hillcrest Students Are Helpers

EnglandFloodRelief

Mrs. England’s 3rd graders collected supplies to aid the flooding relief efforts in Baton Rouge and southern counties in our own state, and because of their generosity, they were featured on WAPT 16’s newscast and Facebook page on August 18.

There is also a collection drive for flood victims happening in the Upper School this week; items such as diapers, toiletries, paper towels, cleaning supplies, and gift cards would be especially helpful.  These and other items may be dropped off in Mrs. Browning’s room.  Contact Madelyn Banks for more information.
