(7)

Established in 1950, Hillcrest is a small, neighborhood school serving students in kindergarten through eighth grades. Our PTA generously provides funding for library, instructional technology, Spanish, art, and music, as well as classroom intervention and teacher support. We have special education services for qualifying students, which provide these students targeted, individualized educational

support, including resource services, speech, an autism spectrum intervention program, and occupational therapy. We work collaboratively to provide a safe and positive learning environment for our children and strive to maintain positive home and school relationships. French and Spanish classes are available for a fee to our students before and after school, through the EFBA and Viva Espanol! There are also fee-based afterschool classes, which include science, dance, art, technology, eco-literacy, and drama. Community service is a cornerstone of the Hillcrest School community, so students at every grade level can expect to participate in a variety of service-oriented activities during each year of their Hillcrest education. It is our goal that by the time a Hillcrest student reaches the eighth grade, he/she will have had full and varied community service experiences.

High School Information Night!
Wednesday, February 19, 7:00-8:30pm (Tomorrow Night!)
Hillcrest Multipurpose Room

This is your chance for inside scoop on what the high schools are really like!

7th and 6th grade students and parents:

Please join us to hear from high school students (most of them Hillcrest alumni), and their parents, about why they chose their school. Students will share about campus life, academics, and more. School administrators will also be on hand to talk about their schools and answer questions.

High schools represented will include Oakland Tech, Skyline, Bentley, Bishop O'Dowd, College Preparatory School, Head-Royce, Holy Names, and St. Mary’s.

This event is especially appropriate for 7th graders who will be making high school decisions in the next school year, but also good for 6th grade families thinking ahead. All interested students and families are welcome, of course.
