Help out at Hillcrest
Please find time in your busy schedule to volunteer at Hillcrest. If every family put in only 16 hours of volunteer time over the course of the whole school year, the results would be phenomenal! Just think, that's only 2 hours per month – and it makes such a big difference.
Helping out can be as simple as typing something up, making a few calls, or using your creativity to move a project along.
When you help at Hillcrest, you get to know other parents at the school, you often make new connections and friendships, and most importantly, you are part of creating the very best educational environment for your child.
Here are a few groups who can use your help. We suggest you select one or two committees that you might enjoy working on, and give the committee chair a call.
AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT
Music, science, art classes. Sign-ups, oversee program, liaison
between teachers and students.

The big fund-raising event of the year! Decorations, ticket sales,
solicit donations from local merchants and businesses. Also, we hope
every family will donate an item, their services, something to be
auctioned. Examples: camping trip, bike trip, group dinners or parties,
weekend or vacation home, computer help, homemade gifts, anything.
