Welcome to the Hillcrest family!
The One Spirit One Sound band had its first lo-o-o-o-ong practice for the 2016 football and marching season Tuesday night. This year’s field show will be the first under new director Josh Landrum and is entitled “Light.”
The first day of the new school year was Monday, August 8th, and what a great day it was! Teachers and staff welcomed many new faces along with even more familiar ones, and if the first day was any indicator, 2016 – 2017 might be Hillcrest’s best year yet.
In the lower school, both the youngest and oldest students seem happy to be surrounded once again by friends and favorite teachers.
Upper school students are happiest, it seems, in the cafeteria.
And teachers are studying up on the latest methods and information to pass along to our scholars.
No doubt, there will be many successes, some failures, good days and bad, and a little bit of everything in between throughout the coming months, but as always, it will be another unforgettable year for the Hillcrest Cougar family.
Parents, please notice that under the “Forms, Documents & Links” heading on the sidebar we have added the Absentee and Make-up Work Policies for the Upper School. Both have recently been re-worded in order that the rules regarding these issues may be more easily understood. Teachers have also been made aware of changes to the policies and procedures and will be following them strictly.
Please take the time to familiarize yourselves and your children with the protocol for when they have to miss classes so that the school year will run smoothly and be a successful one!
The One Spirit, One Sound Band completed a week of camp at Hinds Community College, and began to put together their field show — “Light” — for the 2016 football season. Pictured here are senior band members officially welcoming new director, Joshua Landrum, into the OSOS family.
