Newsletter – April 2019

Dear Parents,

It’s hard to believe there are only three months left in the school year. There is a lot to look forward to in that time though. Cross Country Running, Track and Field, HFHL, Spring Carnival, Field Trips, Fun Day, Kindergarten Orientation, Battle of the Bands, Swimming, and Student Led Conferences are just a few of the activities we have planned. A huge thank you to all of our staff, students and parent volunteers for creating such a wonderful learning community here at Hillcrest.

Gord Ritchie – Principal

The attached newsletter, that was sent home on April 8, 2019, outlines a many of these upcoming events.

Green Shirt Day


Students are encouraged to wear green or a hockey jersey on Monday April 8 in honour of the “Logan Boulet Effect.”

Before Logan Boulet was fatally injured in the Broncos bus crash, he had registered his decision to be an organ donor and discussed his wishes with his family. The 21-year old defenceman went on to save six lives with his generous gifts. In the weeks that followed, Logan’s story inspired more than 100,000 Canadians to become registered organ donors. This became known as the “Logan Boulet Effect”. Now, the Boulet family would like that legacy to continue through an annual Green Shirt Day

We are extremely excited to report that our library renovations are now complete! We would like to thank all of the workers from the operations department for going above and beyond to help create a modern and welcoming learning space for our students and staff.
