Back for it’s 31st year, it’s HILLFEST!! #Hillfest2018

Please join us for games, prizes, raffles, food, and tons of fun at Hillcrest’s 31st annual children’s carnival! Kids of all ages look forward to this annual event, so mark your calendar and plan to attend!

20 cents each if purchased before 4-28-18; 25 cents each on 4-28-18.

To make Hillfest a success, we need everyone’s help! Please consider helping in any/all of the following areas:

► MOST IMPORTANT: Donations of your time! We literally need hundreds of helpers to pull off this event! Please donate a small amount of your time to help with one of the games! This is a great opportunity for you or your organization to be involved, yet requires only two hours of your time! The games are popular & exciting, and the kids LOVE it when their parent helps at school! Your child’s teacher will be contacting you to see which shift on April 14th works best for you, or to reserve the spot you want, you can just log on to our convenient SignUpGenius page, which will be posted soon.

Hillfest simply wouldn’t happen without all the helpers, and this year, we need volunteers more than ever before!

All volunteers who work 4-hour shift at Hillfest on April 14th will receive a voucher for a FREE LUNCH!!

► Donations of prizes for Hillfest games! – may be placed in boxes by the front office or brought to your child’s classroom from April 2nd-13th.

□ “Pitch for Prizes” – this is a very popular game where kids toss small washers at plates to win a prize. We need donations of items that appeal to kids. Donated items need not be new, but all must be CLEAN and SAFE for children. Please package small items or groupings in sealed baggies. Possible suggestions include: sports balls, puzzles, Hot Wheels/Matchbox cars, kids meal toys, costume jewelry, dolls, Barbie items, stuffed animals, action figures, trophies, etc

□ “Book Nook” – this is an opportunity for our students and their families to use their Hillfest tickets to purchase low-cost books, DVDs, and unused activity/coloring books. We need donations of books, videos, and games that appeal to children from preschool thru 5th grade reading levels. Series books are great! No encyclopedias, please.

□ Grade-level donations: Hillcrest students & families are asked to donate the following prizes:
-Kindergarten & 1st grade students: Cake/Snack Walk items (store-bought or homemade)
-2nd & 3rd grade students: Tootsie Roll Pops for the “Lollipop Tree” game
