Welcome to Hillcrest Middle School!
Parents, we invite you to be active members of our school community. First and foremost this means connecting early and often with your child's teachers. You will receive 5 progress reports for your child this year (3 formal end-of-term report cards; 1 interim report in October; 1 student-led conference in February). In addition to these scheduled reports however we encourage you to contact teachers should you desire information on your child's progress in a particular subject area or if you have any questions/concerns about his/her program. We also encourage you to get involved in our school life by taking advantage of opportunities to get involved with our Parent Advisory Council (PAC) or serve as a school volunteer. Preadolescents need their parents to be involved in their school experiences.
To our students: Middle school years are exactly that… the middle. You have completed your elementary schooling and have your secondary years ahead of you. But we believe your middle years are the most important years of your lives. Middle school is a time in which you will change and grow in many ways. The person you are when you graduate from Grade 8 will be much different than when you entered Grade 6. Your middle school years can help you become the best person you can be if you take advantage of the many opportunities we offer to discover new talents strengths. Engaging activities in core subjects, explorations, athletics, Music Enrichment and Student Leadership are some of the ways you may choose to make of the most of your middle years at Hillcrest. Get involved and make your year the best it can be!
We are eager to assist and support you as you travel the road ahead throughout this school year. After all, we want each of you to take the “HighRoad”!
