We had a wonderful end to October with a fun Halloween day filled with dances, costumes and our Hillcrest Helpers who went out in the community to support those in need with our annual Halloween for Hunger Food Drive.  

Hillcrest was also represented very well at our Regional Cross Country races at the soccer complex.  We had lots of top finishers and many of the volunteers who helped out were our very own Intermediates students.  A huge thank you to them.  

November brings Remembrance Day ceremonies, a trip to the high school for our Grade 8s, Progress Reports and Parent/teacher interviews.  Information on Parent/teacher interviews will be coming home with the Progress Reports.  

Have a great November Hillcrest families.

Hillcrest Elementary School
First Day of School
Welcome back to Hillcrest, and a warm welcome to our new Hillcrest families!  We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning!
Just a few reminders for parents for the first day:
  • Yard supervision begins at 8:35.  Students should not be on the yard prior to this time.
  • There is no parking in the drop off area at the front of the school
  • Kindergarten students:  Teachers will meet the students at their bus or at the playground gate near the drop off area, and take the students to their class at the bell
  • For safety and supervision purposes, students in grades 1-8 who are walking to school or being dropped off should go directly to the playground through the playground entrances, NOT through the school
  • Grades 1-3 students will meet in the small gym when the school day starts.  Teachers will read out their class lists and escort their students to their new classroom.
  • Students in grades 4-7 will meet in the large gym when the school day starts. Teachers will read out their class lists and escort their students to their new classroom.
  • Class lists will be posted for the grade 8 students at the bus loop doors, and students will proceed to their new classroom at the bell.
  • During the school day (8:55-3:15), all visitors and parents are asked to check in at the office
  • If you are picking up your child at the end of the school day please wait at the playground gate.  To avoid congestion in our hallways, we ask that parents please NOT meet their child(ren) inside the school
  • Be sure to stay informed of school events through our school’s Facebook page, our school website and School Messenger
