Important New Information for Volunteering at HCS!!!
In an attempt to make things easier for you, our wonderful Hillcrest parents, we are going to be changing the way we coordinate our volunteer opportunities. All volunteering such as morning yard duty, lunch duty, help with PE, etc will now be coordinated by emailing volunteer@hillcrestcs.org. We are hoping this will be more user friendly, especially for those of you who would like to volunteer for multiple or recurring events.  For those of you who have already signed up via Sign up Genius, thank you! We are still tracking those sign-ups while we transition to this new system, but as of January 29th, we will no longer be using this system. 
As a reminder, we are looking for parents to fill the following spots, so we can give our teachers those much-needed breaks. If you are available for any of these positions, please email our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@hillcrestcs.org and let her know! Thank you so much for helping Hillcrest to be the amazing school that it is!
ELEMENTARY MORNING YARD DUTY (M-F)
  • 8:10-8:25 Early Ed yard (K/1st)
  • 8:10-8:25 Lower Elem yard (1st/2nd)
  • 8:10-8:25 Upper Elem yard (3rd-6th)

ELEMENTARY LUNCH RECESS DUTY (M-F)
  • 12:15-1:00 Early Ed yard (K/1st)
  • 12:00-12:45 Lower Elem yard (1st/2nd)
  • 12:00-12:45 Lower Elem yard (2nd-4th)
  • 12:35-1:15 Upper Elem yard (5th/6th)

*NOTE: You are able (and encouraged) to sign up for 1st-2nd or 2nd-4th lunch duty and 5th-6th lunch duty on the same day because they are both on the same yard, the overlap in time would not be an issue. Great way to get extra volunteer hours and bless multiple teachers!
