We have a new website!!
All Simcoe County schools have now been outfitted with a new standardized website. Please visit ours at hil.scdsb.on.ca. Board wide information such as holidays, and PD days are listed, as well as information specific to our school.
Our old website at www.hillcrestps.edublogs.org is still available for accessing archived material, however, new links, newsletters, and posts will be added to our new website.
Check out our December newsletter today! Click on the newsletter link under “Parents”. Class blog links are listed under “Classes”.
We hope you enjoy becoming familiar with our new site.

The Grade 2s in Mrs. Sweeney and Mrs. Cain’s classrooms were busy learning about First Nations teachings on Monday. They learned all about the medicine wheel, including how it represents the seasons, stages of life, directions, and even elements of our earth. The grade 2s had the opportunity to make their own medicine wheel from maple wood and paint.
Today during the Math Jam presentation, the students in Kindergarten through Grade three reviewed math concepts with Music and adventure. Don’t forget, Tigers… You’ve got the power to do Math!
The Tigers recently demonstrated a variety of feats at this year’s talent show. From singing and dancing to martial arts our students have it all. Way to go, Tigers, you should be proud! It takes a lot of courage to get up in front of your peers. Thank you for sharing your talents.
The grade 2 and 3 students in Mrs. Sweeney’s class used amazing collaboration skills by working together to develop a plan for carving their pumpkins. They also used this month’s character trait of cooperation to carry out and complete the task. It is evident that the group work was a success by the delightful end products on display in the front foyer.
Way to go, Tigers!
The students and staff braved rain and cold weather on Wednesday afternoon to present their Tiger Den Cheers led by our fantastic leadership team. Great work on your cheers, Hillcrest! It is such a great way to get to know the other students and staff, and to show our school spirit. Stay tuned for more Spirit activities!!
The Grade 8 students had a great day at Horseshoe Valley Treetop Trekking. Although the weather cold and there were many freezing fingers, the students persevered and challenged themselves at great heights. Many thanks to the guides and parent volunteers for coaching us through. Way to face your fears, Tigers!
