Congratulations to all of our Hillcrest students who became D.A.R.E. graduates on June 12! May you continue to make good decisions and lead safe, healthy lives.
Hillcrest Dual Language students in Ms. Flores, Ms. Rossi and Ms. Guido’s classes recently put on three performances, (“Iqbal,” “Master Khan” and “The Angel”) in both English and Spanish for their peers. The students partnered with teaching artists Nicolas Carter and Stacy Bone-Gleason from SUNY Purchase to write and produce their own plays over a 10 week period. After performing for their peers, Hillcrest students presented their work at SUNY Purchase on May 22.
Thank you to Ms. Rachele Rice for sharing these photos of her young Hillcrest scientists. In these photos, the students are experiencing the life cycles of butterflies, plant cycles and food chains. They are also learning about buoyancy and mass with hands-on activities. All lessons are connected to science, math and ELA curriculum.

The Mobile Food Pantry is coming to Hillcrest! Food items will be available for pick up on the following dates: May 10 and June 28. Pick up will be held from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. unless otherwise announced. We encourage our families to take advantage of this free resource. For the safety and security of our children, we ask that Food Pantry guests not arrive prior to 3:00. To help our efforts, we will also need volunteers to help set up, distribute food and clean up. If you are able to lend a hand, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
