High Standards-High Expectations-No Excuses-No Exceptions
2017-2018 Welcome Letter
This is an exciting time for Hillcrest High School, its staff and students. There are so many great opportunities in this upcoming school year. There are several initiatives that are underway and it will take continued effort to see these to fruition. New construction of the artificial turf football field was completed this summer. We have started Phase I of our new athletic facility. We have a new gymnasium floor. There are many areas of involvement that will lead to continued improvement, with character education and restorative justice being a focus for both staff and students. All of us must work hard to develop our leadership potential and be the best versions of ourselves that we can be. It is my goal to constantly strive to be the very best and offer the most supportive education possible for our students which includes their academic achievement and involvement in extra-curricular activities and athletics. Most importantly, we want to continue to foster relationships where students can learn appropriate risk taking in a structured, safe and caring environment. I believe that our students are starting on their own journeys to success and it begins here with us. The only limiting factor is their ability to work hard in order to get there. I look forward to leading the continued efforts involved in helping to shape our most precious commodity – our students!
