This week, our Hillcrest students will meet authors and learn secrets to telling stories, penning poems, and illustrating books. Many thanks to LRC Director Leslie Hesterman who works hard to make the most of these experiences. Many thanks to you – parents and PTA supporters – for helping to make this happen too. Details to this week’s authors and presentations are as follows:



10.  It’s good for your child   — Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school make better grades and have fewer disciplinary problems.

9. It’s good for Hillcrest — The Hillcrest PTA is responsible for almost all of the school’s fundraising revenue.  We provide support to teachers and administrators, and they create a caring and supportive atmosphere in the school.

 8.  You’ll get connected — There’s no better way to know what’s going on in the school than to be involved in the PTA!

7.  You’ll be part of the National PTA network — Joining the Hillcrest PTA also provides you with membership in the National PTA.  You’ll find out what the PTA does on a national level for education.

 6.  You’ll make a difference — By volunteering with the PTA, you’ll be able to use your skills for a great cause, your child’s education!

 5.  It’s fun! — You’ll connect with a group of people who are all concerned with creating a better environment for their children.  You will help plan fun events, socials and get togethers that the whole family can attend.

 4.  You’ll be a role model  — You’ll show your children that not only are they important to you, but their education is as well.

 3.  You’ll help raise necessary funds  — The PTA fundraises to provide more educational opportunities for our children.  Fundraising remains an important part of improving the quality of Hillcrest overall.

 2.  It’s flexible — The Hillcrest PTA has progressed to meet the changing needs of parents.  There are a variety of small ways parents can help and be involved in the PTA.

 1.  It’s for every parent!  — Your voice and opinion matters!!!  Your voice and ideas can help improve the quality of education for your children and their peers.
