Then an open house will start for 8th graders planning on attending Hillcrest from 4:30 to 6 pm. 6 pm in the auditorium. There will be a presentation for all incoming freshmen that will be something you do not want to miss. We are excited to highlight classes and clubs. Come join us for the HUSKY FAIR!!!!!

Bicycle Repair

Hillcrest High School is in need of donated bicycles for our first-ever bike repair class. This is the first time we’ve ever offered this class and already have over 25 students currently enrolled.  We need all types of bikes but mostly adult bikes with gears since a lot of the curriculum requires students to diagnose and repair the gear system.  As always, donations are tax-deductible.  Feel free to contact Mr. Kilgore for more information  jared.kilgore@canyonsdistrict.org.
