Husky Strong

Principal Message:
September 21, 2016
Next week is Parent Teacher Conferences. Please note that dates are on Monday, September 26 and Tuesday, September 27.  Hillcrest teachers will be in their classrooms except Healthy Life Styles teachers. They will be in the E Hall (hall west of breezeway leading to gyms). Student leaders will also be in halls to assist parents in finding rooms. Please bring your students to Parent Teacher Conferences to help facilitate discussions with teachers and find class rooms. A teacher room list will be available in front halls if needed. We encourage all students and parents to make arrangements to attend PTC on either Monday or Tuesday.  This is a valuable time to meet with teachers in the classrooms and discover what it is like to be a Husky. School will not be held on Friday, September 29, however, the Homecoming football game versus Olympus will be held at 7 PM. Come and support the Huskies. 
Husky Rewards:

H Town Community!  What a privilege to be a part of such a great institution and culture that is Hillcrest High School.   We, as well as you, are looking forward to a great school year.  As parents and students, you define “great school year” as a school that is organized, supportive, student oriented, and academically focused.   This is our hope and determined goal: to make a great school year happen for all students.  HHS is working hard this year and beyond to be about rigor, relevance, and relationships. 

In these endeavors of rigor, relevance, and relationships, we are expecting students to have an experience here at H Town that may be new to them.

  • New student recognition program: “Verge Cards” introduced to students first week of school.
  • Engaging note-taking strategies which involves students recording main points, questions and written summary statements of texts and discussions.
  • Reading skills built from inquiry, as well as informational based texts, to increase understanding and depth of knowledge. 
  • Heightened expectations in all classes:  Language Arts teachers will lead out through increased writing instruction and expect all students to write more.  This requires students to prepare for class with reading assignments completed at home in order to demonstrate comprehension through writing.  Every L. A. teacher has been allocated 38 computers for students to use for writing in the classroom.  

H Town is filled with good people doing their very best.  We value your realistic feedback, but also need your help and support as parents and patrons of HHS.
