Hi guys! Can you believe it's already time to start thinking about the holidays? We want to give everyone plenty of time to do their angel tree shopping this year so we are starting a couple of weeks earlier than usual. If you know of students who could benefit from receiving something extra this Christmas please call or email Mrs. Heather or myself and we will take it from there (we will get them a form to collect clothes sizes, interests, etc.). This is only for Hillcrest students in preschool - 12th grade. Thanks Mrs. Marnie Johnson

Mr. Story is seeking assistance from local citizens as he and Hillcrest High School students work to prepare a special tribute to those who have served, or are currently serving, in the United States Armed Services. As everyone knows, Hillcrest High School will not be able to host its annual Veterans Day event this year due to COVID-19 concerns. However, since it is always important to honor our former and current military members, a video presentation is being planned for Veterans Day (November 11). The production team needs the names of living veterans/ current service persons, a short biography of that person, and information related to their service. Persons from all branches of the armed forces will be recognized for their time in the military whether at home or abroad in peace or war time(s). Although it is a privilege to honor those who have given of themselves for their nation, please send no names or information unless the service person is willing to participate in the project. Hillcrest High School will respect the privacy of individuals not wishing to discuss their service. Individuals wishing to help should contact Mr. Story as soon as possible through email (email@example.com), Private Messenger, Facebook, or by leaving a message at the high school. Those who have access to his private phone number may text him, as well. Please help the Hillcrest High Veterans Day Team make this a project a memorable one for those who truly deserve our appreciation.
Picture makeup day will be November 9th on both elementary and high school campuses.
Senior Composites are scheduled for November 9. There is a $25 fee for the sitting that must be paid that day. There will be no make-up day for composites.

From Mrs. Johnson: Attention Seniors (the ones who finally graduated lol)! The Arkansas Academic Challenge scholarship is now ready to be accepted if all of your information has been processed. They are saying that there were no notification emails sent so you will have to log in to the website to accept your scholarship if you qualified. The link is: https://www.ark.org/adhe_financiala…/adhe.aspx/…/LoginMobile If you have questions please email Mrs. Johnson.
From Mrs. Johnson: We received this from ACT to communicate with students who are registered to take the ACT test. Because there are so many changes with ACT testing related to COVID-19, we would recommend that you instruct students to login to their ACT online account to verify their test site before test day. This could reduce the frustration of students potentially arriving at a test site only to learn that their site has been changed.
