Preschool Families!

In order to further protect the safety and health of our students, families, and the greater community, we as an early education team have decided to postpone our Open House until

Saturday, February 6th
10am-11:30am

Attached you will find a Sign-Up Sheet for families to choose from available slots to view and enjoy the classrooms and the work our "Littles" have been proudly completing thus far this year. We are so proud and excited for you to see this and also see the rooms they will be advancing into next year.

Click the button below to reserve your 15-minute time slot.
The ACSI Day of Prayer is an annual event that advances Christ-centered education by advocating through prayer. There is no doubt that this school year has been unique and often challenging, but God desires for His people to flourish despite the surrounding circumstances. Therefore, we encourage you to join ACSI as we unite globally to pray for Christ-centered Education on Tuesday, February 23, 2021.
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!
