“Let us think of education as the means of developing our Greatest Abilities, because in each of us there is a private Hope and Dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.”
John F. Kennedy
Greetings to all Stakeholders!
We made it through a pandemic to see another school year! We are excited about opening the doors of Hillcrest as we welcome each of you back to a loving and nurturing learning environment. We want each of you to take part in this journey as we continue to LEAP towards success by achieving excellence. It is my desire that each of you will commit to helping all of our students learn how to be productive citizens in our community. As the words of the late 35th President, John F. Kennedy, reflect, we want our students to understand their greatness and how they can impact the world to be a better place. Our mission is to educate our students with the Georgia Standards of Excellence in all content areas while simultaneously implementing Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Happy Kids to be great leaders, effective communicators, successful problem solvers, and applicable lifelong learners. As we go through this process, we want to impart on each child the tools necessary to become productive citizens of our future community. We encourage each learner to apply the following daily in order to
* Be a Leader.
* Be Respectful.
* Be Responsible.
* Be Safe.
As I enter into my fifth year as Principal of Hillcrest Elementary and continue the AWESOME journey that has been taking place here thus far, I want each of you to know that I am committed to making a positive impact on the lives of every child that walks through our doors. When we employ highly effective personnel, positively engage all stakeholders, and provide quality environments and resources, then WE, as a family, will produce successful students that are ready to compete with the world with no hesitation.
Our teachers and staff are planning activities which will motivate and encourage students to reach new heights academically, socially, and emotionally daily in all instructional environments. We will have new activities integrated into our instructional day that will continue to build the leader in every child. Our focus on the environment and public service will continue to expand to build well-rounded, successful students in any environment.
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work with you and your child. We are delighted that you have shown interest in becoming a member of our family, and I look forward to working with each of you this school year. We look forward to an awesome year as we Build Leaders for Life!
