2023-2024 Next School Year Arena Scheduling
Hillcrest High School counselors will be in classrooms beginning January 31 through February 8, 2023, to help students select and add into skyward courses for the 2023-2024 school year. Please see the school’s website for specific details regarding course requests to include the schedule of when and where counselors will be in the classrooms, course selection cards, and instructions to add courses into skyward. The window to complete course requests is from January 31, 2023 – February 14, 2023. For more information click HERE.
All teachers have been asked to send students that are late to class to the attendance office to check-in. Students sent down to the office will receive a check-in slip and turn it into their teacher. We will officially begin on Monday, January 30th.
Our hope is that by sending students to check-in we will keep our hallways safe and clear. We will also be able to identify and provide additional support to our chronically late, truant, and absent students. Let your administrator know if you have any questions or concerns.
The purpose of APP is to provide an opportunity during the school day for students to receive added support from their current teachers. APP is an attendance-based class. Students MUST attend APP to receive credit/grade. The grade earned in APP does affect your GPA. Thank you for your help in reminding students to attend APP.
Husky Fair on January 31
Husky Fair is here again! Husky Fair is a registration orientation for all current 8th graders coming to Hillcrest. Current students are welcome to come 3:30-4:30 pm to check out current clubs and classes. 8th graders and their families are welcome to come from 4:30 pm-6 pm. An assembly will be presented at 6 pm in the auditorium for 8th graders and their parents. Even though some classes are not offered to freshmen, students need to know what to plan for! Each 8th-grade student will also receive a registration packet. We hope to see you there!
