Principal’s Message:

H Town, hope all is well!  

We feel positive vibes here at HHS and thank each patron and student for their trust and participation. Our goal this year is 95% attendance. We need all students to come to school and be in class each day. There are many positive benefits from attending class regularly including avoiding credit recovery and a feeling of belonging to Hillcrest.

We hope for a united student body who are focused on safety, respect, and responsibility. This year we have asked teachers to choose one of their classes to participate in a small service project around the school. Students who choose to participate will make HHS a cleaner and better place. Students will also enjoy the rewards that come with giving back. Go Huskies!

-Principal Leavitt

Dawg Wednesday

Free Hotdogs for perfect attendance! Students with perfect attendance during each week will receive a FREE hotdog during lunch on Dawg Wednesday. To see if you qualify, log into skyward or ask an HHS staff member to check your attendance, then show your attendance to a staff member, get a ticket from an administrator, and pick up your hotdog in the concession stand near the gym.
