Hillcrest Fest 8.22.17

CELEBRATE THE START OF A NEW SCHOOL YEAR
HILLCREST FEST!!
Get ready to celebrate the start of the school year at Hillcrest Fest!  This annual event will be held on Tuesday, August 22 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 and Hillcrest temporary tattoos
  • Free Cotton Candy
  • Free Root Beer, donated by the Zayed Family
  • Pizza available for purchase from Skuttlebutts
  • Informational tables about committees, clubs and organizations (including a rocket launch sponsored by Cub Scouts!)
  • Lots of fun catching up with friends 🙂
The festival will open a Teacher Meet and Greet.  The Hillcrest teachers will have their classrooms open from 5:45-6:00 for families to briefly stop in classrooms, meet the teacher 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 lisakolavennu@gmail.com.
