  • Mrs. King's Class Welcomes Special Guest for The Polar Express and "Hot Cocoa"

    On December 9, Mrs. Tara King’s Grade 4 class welcomed a special guest to Hillcrest Elementary to take part in a festive enrichment activity. Student Isabella Gomez’s mother, Mrs. Gomez, visited the class and read the children, “The Polar Express,” by Chris Van Allsburg. Mrs. Gomez provided the children with a Polar Express themed literacy activity packet, and then set out to help students create mugs of “hot cocoa,” by using giant marshmallows, mini candy canes, chocolate frosting and cookies. Mrs. King's class will add this holiday recipe to the classroom’s cookbook, which they are developing to share with their families.

  • Enrichment Activities at Hillcrest Teach Students Life Skills

    Just before the Thanksgiving break, Hillcrest Elementary School students in Ms. Rice and Ms. Reeves’ classes were busy planning their own Thanksgiving meal. The task of assembling the feast helped teach Grade 4 and 5 students real life skills by requiring them to set their own budget and plan for the food and supplies that they needed for their feast.
