🌈 Community Circle - You're invited! 🌈
We want to invite parents and caregivers to attend tomorrow morning's (8/15/22) Community Circle - on the playground after students line up. Each Monday morning, we kick off the week with a school wide community circle, where we aim to lift up student voices and celebrations. It will begin with an energizing opening, designed to center them in our community, and following, will generally consist of academic and cultural celebrations, spotlights on social emotional learning and restorative justice, and space to highlight the qualities that make our school a safer, kinder, and more positive place. The Circle will close with appreciations and "Cardinal Call Outs" where we recognize and uplift individuals who are demonstrating efforts and behaviors of mindful community members. Most weeks, Community Circle will be just for Hillcrest students and staff, but we will notify the community through the Hillcrest Newsletter when families and caregivers are invited to attend. We look forward to seeing many of you join us tomorrow morning!
🙌 Calling all Room Parent Volunteers! 🙌
Now that everyone knows which teachers your children have, it’s time to get involved! Want to be a teacher’s new BFF? Want to know the ins and outs of what is going on in the classroom? Enjoy bringing people together and making magic happen? Then we need YOU to become a Room Parent! Your main responsibilities are to be the liaison between the teacher and the other parents in the class, recruit volunteers for various activities and collect a few class funds to make the machine run. Plus, you don’t have to do it alone…bring a friend to do it with you! We need you (& your friend) and we need you ASAP! Interested or want to learn more? Please send Jennifer de Guerre a message through email or on Konstella! Or, sign up in person tomorrow morning, August 15th on the playground. Sign up tables will be located near the Mandalay gate and there will be coffee! Your kid (and teacher) will thank you!
