Parent Teacher Conferences

We are looking forward to our upcoming parent-teacher conferences. Parent-teacher conferences are a great opportunity to connect with their student’s teachers. Parents can talk to their student’s teachers about attendance, grades, behavior, and any other concerns. Conferences will be held over two days. The first day, Monday, September 25th, will be an in-person day. The second day, Tuesday, September 26th, will be a virtual day with zoom conferences only.

In-Person Conference Night Information: Sept. 25: 3:30-7:30 pm

  • Spanish interpreters will be available on each floor of the building. Arabic interpreters will be available in the HHS Commons. 
  • Please check your student’s schedule for room numbers and teachers so that you can more easily find your way around the school. We will have staff available in the commons to help with schedules and guidance to classrooms. 
  • Teachers will be located in their classrooms unless otherwise noted

Virtual Conference Night Information: Sept. 26 from 3:30-7:00 pm

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. Students are able to come to the pantry before/after school and during lunch to pack a food bag each week. Please check in with student support. Parents and families will need to make an appointment with Miss El (elena.foley@canyonsdistrict.org or 385-418-9490) Please be sure to check out our website or on instagram @hillcrestfreemarket.
