Year-End Newsletter

LINK: Hillcrest Newsletter – June 2022

Dear Hillcrest Families,                                                                                                                                   

Thank you for another fantastic school year and for sharing your children with us! We truly appreciate the opportunity to build memories, have fun, and learn with your incredible children. It was a pleasure to read our report cards last week as it was evident that all our students have worked extremely hard this year and have come so far with their learning.

The newsletter above contains some important information about end of year items and school start-up for Sept 2022. Please note, the first day of school next year for Grade 1-5 students will be on Wednesday Sept 7. Also, our daily bell schedule will be slightly different next year. The school day will begin at 8:13am and will finish at 2:10pm.  Families with students in Kindergarten should refer to the gradual entry schedule they received at our K-Orientation in planning for the first two weeks.

On a personal note, it has been an absolute honour to work in such an amazing school and community. Our students have such kind hearts and always come to school happy and ready to learn. Our parents are always so supportive and genuinely care about how their children are doing at school. Our staff care deeply for their students, are extremely skilled educators, and have a true passion for learning. I have learnt so much during my time at Hillcrest and I want to thank everyone for making my time at Hillcrest so memorable.

Finally, I would like to wish everyone a wonderful and safe summer filled with relaxation, fun, adventure, and lots of new memories with your family.
