Good Afternoon Hillcrest Families,

Please see the following important information below in regards to Hillcrest!

Poinsettia Fundraiser

We will be launching our Bradford Greenhouses Poinsettia fundraiser.  It goes live on School Cashonline on October 31st, and runs until November 16th.  Order forms will also be sent home with students.  Please note that forms must be returned to the school by November 15th for processing. Orders made on paper must be paid with cash upon submission to the school.  If you are interested, you simply order the poinsettia size you want and you will receive a gift card to use at Bradford Greenhouses to purchase one of your choice.  Gift cards will be delivered through the school during the week of November 21st.  This fundraiser is helping support Athletics, Character Education, and School Presentations.  Thank you for your support!

Transportation Letter

Please see the attached letter in regards to the code of conduct expected while riding on school transportation.  Please review this letter with your child(ren) even if you do not take a bus to school.  It is possible that walking students may ride on transportation for field trips or school activities.  A paper copy has been sent home to students who ride the bus daily and we are asking that you sign and return the paper copy to the school after reviewing.  Thank you for your support with this matter.
