Dear Hillcrest Families, 

The summer is flying by!  We had a very successful summer school for many of our students in June and early July.  We are busy making sure that our school is ready for the 2017-2018 school year.  I do hope you are taking the time to enjoy your friends and family.  I also hope you have had a chance to visit the HCES media center or the Burke County Public Library.  That is your only "job" to do this summer, students, in preparation for the new year is to R E A D !

This year we blend the old and the new.  We are now the Hillcrest Elementary School Cougars.  Our school colors are red and gold.   
You will see the hard our custodial and office crews have been at work this summer when you enter our building.  You can find us on Twitter by searching #bestatthecrest  just like before. 

See you on August 24 for OPEN HOUSE.  You will get to meet your teachers then.

And the phrase to remember is:  BEST AT THE CREST!  That is really the truth; we really are the BEST at the CREST!

We look forward to having Darrin Foddrell join our Hillcrest family for the 2017-2018 school year... more information to come!
