Homecoming Week Information

With Homecoming NEXT WEEK students, alumni, and other members of the Hillcrest family have many questions about activities and expectations.  Here is your go-to source for all things Homecoming-related:

This year’s theme is “Back in Time”

Upper and Lower School Dress-up Days:
Monday – Movie Monday
Tuesday – Safari Tuesday
Wednesday – Storybook Wednesday
Thursday – Theme Thursday
Friday – Spirit Day

Class Competitions: Each day there will be games in which the Upper School classes will compete for points.  At the end of the week, points are tallied from dress-up days and games, and first and second place winners overall are decided; these classes will receive a yet-to-be-decided prize later in the school year.IMPORTANT! Friday Class Schedule: Students are expected to attend class as usual until 11:05 AM, and attendance will be taken.  Cheerleaders, football players, band members and Homecoming maids will be dismissed at 10:50 AM to get lined up for the parade.  All students must remain in class until they are officially dismissed.  The pep rally will begin immediately after the parade is finished and will take place in the high school gym.

High School Dance:  Held in the high school gym from 10:30 PM to 12:30 AM.
*Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at the door and can be purchased from Mrs. Browning.
*If a student’s date does not attend Hillcrest, prior approval must be given for his/her attendance by the principal.  Forms for outside dates are available from the front office and are due NO LATER THAN Wednesday, September 19th and can be turned in at the front office.
*Suggested attire is dressy-casual; semi-formal is acceptable, but not required.  All dress should be modest and appropriate.  HCS teachers and administration (chaperones) reserve the right to refuse admission to a student and/or guest if dressed inappropriately.
*No parents are allowed inside the gym an hour before or during the dance.

Junior High Dance:  Held in the elementary gym from 9:30 PM to 11:30 PM.
*Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at the door and can be purchased from Mrs. Browning.
*Only 7th and 8th grade Hillcrest students are allowed to attend — no older dates, and no dates from other schools.
*Suggested attire is dressy-casual; semi-formal is acceptable, but not required.  All dress should be modest and appropriate.  HCS teachers and administration (chaperones) reserve the right to refuse admission to any student dressed inappropriately.  Students who would like a place to dress after the game (in order not to have to go home and miss much of the dance) will be accommodated.
*No parents are allowed inside the gym 30 minutes before or during the dance.

Homecoming Court 2017

Congratulations to all of the young ladies who were elected by their classmates to represent Hillcrest as members of the 2017 Homecoming Court.

And, a very special congratulations goes to Amber Speegle, who was elected by her peers as the 2017 Homecoming Queen.  Amber was crowned Friday night by last year’s queen, Madelyn Banks.

HoCo Day 4 – Athletes vs. Math-letes

Day four of Homecoming week found athletes and math-letes competing against one another in more “Minute to Win It” games.  The competition was fierce as they used balloons to blow cups off a table, moved m&m’s from one plate to another using only a straw, and “hiked” toilet paper to a classmate who had to catch it with one hand only.  As of today, the Junior class is leading in the points, but “it ain’t over ’till it’s over”: Tomorrow class floats will be presented as part of the Homecoming parade, and anyone can still take the lead!
