Events and Field Trips
During the Hillcrest school year the Pre-Kindergarten students have the option to go on two trips. Each October, we head to a local farm to pick pumpkins and apples. It’s a great day in the pumpkin fields and apple orchards learning about how plants grow and the workings of a farm. In May, our graduates head to Storybook Land for an end of the year celebration. It is a great day on age appropriate rides, enjoying lunch with friends and celebrating all of the hard work the children have done throughout the year.
Our Pre-K Graduation is held in a local venue and we invite all family members to attend. This culmination of what the children have learned is amazing for the children, and for the families and staff, as well. It is so rewarding to see what the children have learned and accomplished.
Our Preschool classes are not left out of the festivities. We host a family picnic day, where we invite all the families for lunch and outdoor activities. The children will put on a small recital for their families. But no celebration is complete without Pony Rides! As a treat for all their hard work, Ponies are brought to Hillcrest and each child gets a ride. Bigger smiles have never been seen.
We have other various events throughout the year that each classroom is included in, such as Back to School Night, a Halloween Parade, Thanksgiving Feast, a visit from Santa Claus, a Christmas Tree Lighting, School Spirit Week, and a visit from the Easter Bunny, a Vendor Fair Community Event and so much more!
