Readathon 2020

Thank you to all of our participants in the Readathon! We were so impressed with how many minutes you all were able to read and want to give a big shout out to Ms. Simmons’ class for having the most minutes read! Congratulations, readers!
We will be ordering our Readathon t-shirts soon and every participant who submitted the google form will receive one. We will update you when we know when the shirts will arrive and how we will get them to you. Please bear with us, as production and shipping times may be delayed.
Thank you so much to our sponsors Heidi Marchesotti, Neil Tuller with Adventure Time, Katy Anderson, Marcos Hernandez of Royal Painting, Han Martial Arts, Philippa Roberts, and Drs. Ikeda & Righellis Orthodontics! They really showed up for our school and we are so grateful.
Thank you again for taking part in this event and using your time at home to still show some Hillcrest spirit!
Sincerely,
Carrie Markowski & Jessica Brasch – Readathon co-chairs

Family Party on the Yard: Pizza! Potluck! Games!

When: Tuesday, September 17, 2019 from 6:00 – 7:30pm
Games Night — a community favorite — is back … and this year, we’re amping it up: it’s a pizza party and potluck, too! Join the fun on the Yard … plus dinner:
enjoy PTA-provided (free!) pizza (plus plates, utensils, napkins)
please bring a dish to share: 

grades K-3, bring salad, fruit, or other “side” dish
grades 4-8, bring a dessert

(no nuts, please; label gluten free)
Please bring beverages for your family: Reminder: alcohol is not allowed on school grounds.
Seating for eating will be limited; if you have littles, you may want to bring a blanket. Pizza is first-come-first-served. We will have some meat-free pizzas, but those with other food limitations may want to bring items that meet their family’s needs. 
Hillcrest friend Coach T will be back as our special guest to lead families in games like Four-Square, Duck Duck Goose, Tag and Switch! The whole family is invited.
