Walkathon & Carnival – April 27, 2019

Hillcrest Walkathon 2019: We are Mighty! Be the Change!
Saturday April 27, 2019
9AM to 3PM
Kids have the power to change the world! What issues do you care about and how can you be MIGHTY to effect positive change in the world? The Hillcrest 2019 Walkathon is coming up & we are getting ready to show our MIGHTINESS by walking, volunteering & pledging to raise funds for important programs at our school! It’s our school’s last large fundraiser of the year & our annual Spring carnival!
Registration is now open so please begin talking with your kids about how many laps they will walk & who they should ask to sponsor them.  It’s their laps and hard work that will allow them to do things they love at Hillcrest like Art, Music, Information Technology, Library, Spanish and so much more.
Register your children for the Walkathon by visiting the Walkathon website.
The class with the most early registrations will win a fun Party! REGISTRATION GETS YOU A FREE T-SHIRT TOO! Parents MUST complete a permission slip & register children to walk in the Walkathon. The class with the most registration by April 8th wins a fun Party (party theme is tbd).

This is your chance for the inside scoop on what the high schools are really like! Hear from Hillcrest alumni (and parents) about the choices they made for high school. Students will share about campus life, academics, and more. School administrators will also be on hand to talk about their schools and answer questions.
High schools represented will include Oakland Tech, Skyline, Bentley, Bishop O’Dowd, College Preparatory School, Head Royce, and St. Mary’s. This event is for middle school students and their families (though all are welcome).
For information/questions contact Kira Gould or Beth Gousman.

Emergency Packets – Final Week to Order

The deadline to complete forms and turn in checks is this Friday September 7th! Currently only 6 classes have more than 50% participation. The Middle School can provide a packet for your child(ren) as a fundraiser to help support their annual field trip. Give yourself a break from assembling a packet AND support the Hillcrest Middle School! The cost is $18 per student. Please note that nothing will contain nuts due to allergies, and a gluten free option is available. Each family must notify the school whether they will bring in their own packet or purchase the MS fundraiser emergency packet. Click here to print out the form & learn more about what is included (or learn what to include); blank forms are available in the office. Turn in completed forms and checks in the envelope marked “Emergency Preparedness Packets” in the front office.
