PARENTS

Please join us for our monthly
PFA Meeting!

Thursday, March 25 at 1:30pm

The Parent Faculty Association (PFA) is a volunteer organization here at Hillcrest that exists to help support our teachers, students, staff, and families, as well as build community within the school. 

The PFA is a fun and dynamic group that meets on a monthly basis. New parents are always welcome and highly recommended to join or attend meetings.  This is a great way to spend time with your child as well as get to know other parents at the school.

Our parent volunteers help make Hillcrest the amazing school that it is. We could not do what we do without their help! Whatever your talent, skillset, or area of desire to serve may be, there are so many ways to get involved. 

We welcome you to become part of our amazing group and look forward to working with you!

Easter Vacation
April 5th - 9th
No School - No Distance Learning
To date, we have been able to raise $581.61 for Hillcrest, just by our families using the HCS AmazonSmile donation link.


JUST THINK...if every one of us used our HCS AmazonSmile link, instead of the regular amazon.com how much more we could earn for our school.

If you are currently using the amazon.com app, you can easily save the AmazonSmile link to your desktop or home screen and use it just like the app!!! In doing so, you would be contributing 0.5% of your order to be donated to Hillcrest!

REMEMBER, ONLY PURCHASES MADE AT smile.amazon.com and NOT the Amazon mobile app generate AmazonSmile donations.
PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Please email the HCS Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@hillcrestcs.org to let her know the day and time you'd like to volunteer at Hillcrest!
PLEASE REMEMBER TO LOG YOUR HOURS IN THE HCS VOLUNTEER LOG BOOK! IT IS LOCATED IN THE MAIN OFFICE LOBBY. YOU WILL DEFINITELY WANT THOSE HOURS COUNTED BEFORE THE END OF THE SEMESTER GETS TOO CLOSE! :o)
