High School Information Night

Join us on Thursday, October 25, from 7:00 – 8:30 pm in the Hillcrest Multipurpose Room for High School Information Night. 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.
Questions? Contact Kristin Ruff or Rob Rueca
