Kindergarten Registration 2020-2021

Registration opens for Kindergarten on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 9 a.m. This early date allows for more equitable access and better planning. All registrations on this date are treated as equal so there is no need for line-ups! If you know of a family in our neighborhood with a 3 or 4 year old child, please help us spread the word by letting them know about this important date.
Parents registering should bring proof of citizenship (ie birth certificate), proof of residence, your child’s care card and their immunization record. Information on required documentation can be found on the school district’s website at New to Our District.

Memorial Open House for Ms. Wentworth

The Hillcrest Community will be forever touched by the gentle, kind, patient, caring and positive approach Jodie Wentworth took to every moment of every day. She was an amazing educator and mother and we dearly miss our friend and colleague.
In case you missed the announcement in the SA Observer (See Link Below), there will be a memorial open house at the Little Mountain Fieldhouse (30th Street SE, Salmon Arm, BC) on October 5th 2019, drop in from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.


Orange Shirt Day

Orange shirt day is an opportunity for Indigenous people, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come. Orange Shirt Day at Hillcrest is on Monday September 30th. If your child does not have an orange shirt, anything orange if fine (ie. an orange ribbon taped to their shirt).
