Dear Parents,

As we begin a new year, we want to say thank you for partnering with us at Hillcrest Christian School. On behalf of our faculty and students, I also want to thank you for prayerfully considering giving to our Annual Fund. Your donation, regardless of the size, is most appreciated. Our goal of $1,000,000, will go towards meeting the needs of our school and this wonderful new facility. A big thank you to those who have stopped by or sent in donations already. Your kind words, letters, and generous gifts have been a huge encouragement to our faculty and staff. 

Please reference the flyer below to see the areas where your gifts will bless the growth and development of our wonderful school. 

We are looking forward to an incredible 2021 year with your amazing children!

HEY PARENTS!!
We have many coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, and other personal items that have been left behind by students at school.

Please take a few moments to check the Lost & Found inventory this week. Elementary & Secondary items will be in the main breezeway on long-lengthened tables. Preschool items will be in a bin in the Preschool breezeway.

All HCS clothing left unclaimed by Friday, January 15th will be donated to the PFA used uniform inventory. All other unclaimed items will be discarded.

Thank you and happy searching & finding!!
Hello Saints!
We are implementing a new carpool procedure for those that pick-up their students in the front of the main campus and we need your help to make sure it runs smoothly.
There are now three lanes as you reach the front of the school, the outermost lanes will both be used for parents to stop and wait for their child to be brought to their car, and the middle lane will be used once you have your student and are ready to drive away.  A staff member will help escort your student to your car. IMPORTANT: DO NOT CALL FOR YOUR STUDENT TO COME TO YOU, PLEASE ALLOW YOUR STUDENT TO BE BROUGHT TO YOU!
 We are hoping that this will help to make pick-up time much quicker and smoother for all involved and help us to be good neighbors for the residents of Hodencamp Dr.
Thank you for your cooperation!
