Dear Hillcrest Students and Families,
I hope you have had time to make lots of great memories and enjoy your summer! The new school year is right around the corner. Class rosters will be posted on the front doors on August 18th at 4 pm. It is a team effort between former teachers, counselor, specialists, administration and parental input to put class lists together.There are many factors that are taken into consideration in order to provide well-balanced class rosters.
The first day of school is on Tuesday, August 22nd. You are welcome to escort your child to the back of the school (West Playground) and wait with them if you desire. Once the bell rings at 9:10, students will line up behind the number of their classroom (which are painted on the blacktop), say your goodbye’s and teachers will be there to escort students to their classroom. In lieu of a Sneak Peak, we will be holding Back To School Night much earlier this year. Please plan to come meet your child’s teacher on August 31st. There will be three, half- hour sessions. You choose one at either 6:00, 6:30 or 7:00.
I will be on maternity leave starting August 22nd. I am sad to miss the opening of school year. However, I know Hillcrest will be in very good hands while I am away. Mrs. Paula Bell (retired Boise School District Administrator) and Mrs. Rebecca Severson (Assistant Principal at Horizon Elementary) will be filling in for me as building administrators while I am away.
Mrs. Bell Mrs. Severson
I wish you the best as you prepare for the new school year and begin new adventures! I will miss you all and I look forward to seeing you later this semester!

Parking Lot Pick Up Procedures
In order to ensure safety for all our students please abide by the following if you pick up your child:
Hillcrest is a Title I School
What does this mean?
Being a Title I school means receiving federal funding (Title I dollars) to supplement the school’s existing programs.
Being a Title I school also means parental engagement and parents’ rights.
