Welcome Letter from Principal Segura

Dear Hillcrest Students and Families,

It is hard to believe that summer is almost over. I hope you all had time to relax with friends and family. I am so excited to be your new principal and to get to know each and every one of you! As your new principal, it is important for me to understand the needs and wants of the Hillcrest school community so we are conducting a survey of families. The surveys will be available at registration. We will take this information and use it to determine patterns and themes, and what we find will be shared with our community.

Registration is scheduled for Friday, August 19, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Registration packets will be available at the school and online at http://hillcrestpta.org.

There is also a kindergarten ice cream social Friday, August 19 from 4:00-6:00p.m.  On Saturday, August 20 there will be a school yard clean up event and we hope you can come join us to help get the campus ready for our students. The first day for students is Monday, August 22.  The bell rings at 8:25 a.m. and students will be dismissed at 1:15 p.m.

Please be sure to welcome the newest members of the staff: Nikki Wellman – middle school humanities teacher, Brendon Smith – middle school math teacher, Rafael Rosado-Moreno – attendance clerk, Jake Peake – physical education teacher, and David Apolinard – music teacher.

I am looking forward to a terrific 2016-2017 school year and to serving all of our families.

Respectfully,
Sherry K. Segura, Ph.D.
Principal, Hillcrest K-8
