The week of: September 13th - 19th, 2020
Hillcrest welcomes 2 new Secondary Teachers,
Mrs. Krause - English and Mr. Pratt - Math
Currently a flight attendant on voluntary extended leave from Southwest Airlines, Carolyn Krause is beyond excited to be part of the HCS family once again! For sixteen years, she served HCS in various positions including as a college advisor, dean of students, and history and English teacher. Also a UCLA Bruin graduate, blue and gold run through her veins. Additionally, she earned her Masters at Pepperdine. She and the love of her life, Steve, just celebrated forty-one years of wedded bliss; they have three and a half grown children.
Welcome back, Mrs. Krause!!!
James Pratt comes to Hillcrest with a Bachelor's degree and is currently pursuing his Master's degree in Mathematics. He is very excited to be working with the HCS family and feels truly blessed to be a part of this wonderful community. Mr. Pratt refers to himself as "a math person" and says that he feels God had called him to become a teacher; it is what he has always aspired to be.
Mr. Pratt loves to play guitar as well as perform for an audience.
Welcome, Mr. Pratt! We are excited to have you as part of our Hillcrest Family.

IMPORTANT REMINDER!
The COVID-19 Heath Screening needs to be filled out the morning of school!! These health screenings are time-stamped, so doing it the evening before will not work!
ALSO: Please fill out their screening BEFORE they enter the front gate. This will allow them onto campus and get to their class on time.
LASTLY: Beginning Monday, September 14th all Secondary Students will be directed to check in at the main breezeway of the school!!! We have found that our thermo-cameras have saved a lot of time in the check-in process with the younger students and feel this will help aid in getting our secondary students to class quicker as well.
Thank you for your patience as we maneuver through these new procedures to run our school as efficiently as possible.
DON'T FORGET!

We are asking that each Hillcrest family signs up to volunteer as a Lunch Duty Attendant or an Extended Care Volunteer at least once per month.
