Dear Hillcrest Family!!

We have been receiving feedback from families in regards to the HCS Parent & Staff Survey stating their link did not work, they could not locate their token, or the time to take the survey had run out. We took these notes to heart and decided to extend the timeframe one more week. Please complete the survey no later than this coming Tuesday, March 9th. 

1. We want you to know that your feedback is extremely valuable to us. Taking this survey helps us know what our strengths and our weaknesses are, and it helps us develop goals for our school's future. 

2. When we have 75% of our families complete our survey, we will celebrate by having a donut hole and chocolate milk party with the whole school. 

To complete the survey, please click the new link provided below and enter your token number. If you can't find the original email with your token number, please email Jennifer Miller at jmiller@hillcrestcs.org, and she will be happy to resend it to you on Monday. 

Thank you so much for your help with this!
We are so grateful to be apart of this wonderful HCS family!  

Jennifer Miller
HCS Exec. Asst.
