Homecoming Wrap-Up and What’s Next

We came, we saw, we conquered… Homecoming week!  Congratulations to the Cougar varsity football team for an exciting win over Amite Friday night.  Our boys fought hard and came out with the victory, which they then celebrated at the Homecoming dance.  Prior to that, it was a week filled with games, costumes, and a parade, which allowed upper-school classes to compete for points and yet-to-be-determined prizes.  The seniors earned the most points in the high school, and the 8th grade took the win in the junior high.  Congratulations to both classes!

Congratulations also must go to Madelyn Banks, who was elected 2016 Homecoming Queen.  She and all the other maids not only looked beautiful Friday night, but they represented Hillcrest well.

School has now returned somewhat back to normal; however, the upper school will be taking 9 Weeks’ Exams this week, and we will be on regular schedule each day.  Today, due to an early-morning power outage, students will only take their second period exams; the first period exam has been moved to Thursday.  Tuesday’s exams are third and fourth periods; Wednesday’s exams are fifth and sixth periods; and Thursday’s exams are first and seventh periods, as well as any make-ups students may have.  After that, school will be closed for a well-deserved four-day weekend for Fall Break!

Disney Goes to College!

The annual Hillcrest college fair for juniors and seniors just happened to fall at the same time as Homecoming this year, so college and armed services recruiters were bombarded with questions from the likes of Dory, Cinderella, a slew of Star Wars heroes and villains, and many more.

Maybe Hillcrest is the real “happiest place on earth”!

Homecoming!!

Homecoming is right around the corner! September 26th through the 30th will be a wild and crazy, but fun, week.

We have added a page here which provides specific information about the 2016 Homecoming events; find it under the “Campus Life” tab.  Please check it out and make plans to support our football team as much as possible that week.  Go, mighty Cougars!!
