Hillcrest News & Announcements


  • Local Professionals Help Inspire Hillcrest Students

    Thanks to the Hillcrest Community School program, Hillcrest Elementary recently welcomed a number of local community members and school employees who came to speak with the children about their professional careers. The purpose of the event was to expose the students to both traditional and non-traditional jobs. Speakers visited on separate days between May 16 and June 8. Areas of occupation included nurses, hairdressers, custodians, party planners, lawyers, local business owners and more. Students listened to presentations and were engaged in hands-on activities, during which they were able to ask questions of the presenters.

  • Hillcrest Students Leave Their Mark Through Graffiti Mural

    Throughout the month of May, over 500 students at Hillcrest Elementary School brought color and positive affirmations to life in their school community by creating an almost 100 foot mural on the school’s playground. To gain inspiration for the piece, students discussed the history of Hip Hop culture, with an emphasis on graffiti, and spoke about the importance of getting permission when creating public murals. The students worked together to choose positive words that best described their personalities and painted the words within the piece. Students also signed a pledge that described how they would educate younger and older individuals on how to protect their new community artwork.
