Hillcrest Fest 2019

ARE YOU READY TO CELEBRATE THE START OF A NEW SCHOOL YEAR?

Join us at
HILLCREST FEST!!

Tuesday, August 20 6:00-7:30pm

Funded by the Hillcrest PTA, the back to school festival is an awesome way to kick off the start of the school year for all Hillcrest Families. This year’s festivities include:
Inflatable obstacle courses and bounce houses
DJ
Face painting
Free cotton candy (one per child, please!)
Free root beer, donated by Leo’s Wine and Spirits
Pizza, water and gatorade available for purchase from Skuttlebutts
Hillcrest Spirit Wear available for purchase
Informational tables about committees, clubs and organizations
Lots of fun catching up with friends 🙂
VOLUNTEER SIGN UP

The festival will open with a Teacher Meet and Greet. The Hillcrest teachers will have their classrooms open from 5:45-6:15 for families to stop in classrooms, meet teachers and drop off school supplies. Thank you to the staff for making this opportunity available that will help ease first day jitters and chaos for students (and parents!). Please note that some teachers may not be able to attend the event and will leave a note on the door as to where to leave the supplies. Families who are unable to attend should plan to send school supplies on the first day of school.

Hillcrest Fest is also a great time to share information about clubs, committees and organizations that other families may be interested in. If you would like a table to display your information, please contact Lisa Kolavennu.

You won’t want to miss this annual celebration-it will be a blast! But we must have your help to make it successful. We need dozens of adult volunteers to help set up, supervise events, paint faces, etc. Shifts are only 30-45 minutes so you will have plenty of time to socialize before/after your shift. Please click here to sign up now.

VOLUNTEER SIGN UP

Please feel free to e-mail us with any questions. AND PLEASE SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER! We look forward to seeing everyone on August 20!
