Principal Message: 

HHS is about Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships. It is my hope that all interactions with HHS at any level show our desire to build and foster relationships and also create meaningful learning. Both of which will prepare students for college or career readiness. 

During our welcome messages and assemblies, Hillcrest Administration will share with students about being SAFE, KIND, & RESPONSIBLE. We will talk with students about emotional support and safety. Every student will be encouraged to download the Safe UT App. A how-to video can be found on our web page. Every parent should ask their student if they have downloaded this app. If students see something, they should say something. The Safe UT App gives them a safe, anonymous platform to use for reporting.

This year, we will continue our positive approach to behavior in the following ways:

  • Students with perfect attendance for the week will be rewarded.
  • Students who meet the expectations of #WWHD will be awarded Hillcrest spirit gear and swag. WWHD is our “What Would A Husky Do” campaign prompting students to make good choices.
  • APP is every day at 9:10 a.m. Students will be receiving weekly grade updates and assigned study halls to help them recover or enhance grades. Study hall will also be provided for excelling students to get extra help or study with friends. We hope students will feel less stress with homework given. They will have 40 minutes per day to do schoolwork with support. If you need to check your student out during APP time, be aware that they may not be in their assigned classroom. Talk with your student prior to checking them out to see their location.  
  • Husky Grams are notes sent home by teachers to students who deserve positive feedback or encouragement. We hope your students will receive one from a teacher. 

Welcome Back!

We are a Community School!

What is a Community School?

A community school is a school that strives to unite school staff, community members, families, and students to work together to help students and families succeed! We work together to provide resources and events for our families. Some examples of the things we do at Hillcrest include providing food, clothing, showers, and holiday support through our Hillcrest Free Market. We connect families and students to local resources. We also host annual community resource events such as Back to School Night, our Wellness Fair, and our Cultural Night. 

  • Our pantry hours will be changing. Please be sure to check out our website. We will be continuing our farmers market with fresh fruits and vegetables in September.
  • The Free Market is on Instagram! Follow our Hillcrest Free Market Instagram to stay updated on community events and resources over the year. (@hillcrestfreemarket) 
  • Want to support our Hillcrest Free Market? Many of our most needed items can be found on our Amazon Wishlist found HERE or donate to our success fund found HERE  

Interested in joining our Parent Square group? Please email elena.foley@canyonsdistrict.org or text 385-418-9490 your student’s name to be added. We send updates about our food distribution, events, and resources.
