Students may now sign up for a second semester small group. Please read carefully on the slide presentation the directions and deadlines, the descriptions of the groups, and sign up as needed/desired for an applicable small group. The groups are voluntary and confidential.
A completed Small Groups Sign Up Permission Google Form that includes a student signed commitment and parent/guardian permission is required to be completed prior to the first meeting. This form may be found on each small group description slide. Sign ups are due no later than Friday, January 21, 2022. Note: A referral is not required for a student to sign up for a group.
Have a fun picture you want in the Yearbook this year?? Send it to Ms. More's email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and it could end up in the book! We are desperately looking for pictures of student's lives, so send us your selfies, posed pics, action shots - anything (school appropriate).

Dads on Duty
Hillcrest is looking for ways to help our parents/guardians feel more connected with the school and one way we are exploring to that end is starting a Dads on Duty type of group at Hillcrest. We would love to have parents/guardians join us to be a positive presence during our lunches because we believe lunch time might be the most convenient time for Dads to join us during the day and also the most conducive time for conversations and being present for our students. Interested parents/guardians are asked to fill out this form. We will reach out to those who are interested about the next steps. Our goal is to have some Dads on Duty beginning during our second semester.
Nominations for the 2022 ACE Awards are now being accepted! The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) was created by Greg Blatt, Founder and Executive Director of Coaches 4 Character. It is an annual award given to one male and one female student from each of the Greenville County middle and high schools. The award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments. The selection process focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but who have accomplished great things in their community, church or school.
If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please submit your nomination through the attached link: www.coaches4character.com/ace-awards. (Paper nomination forms are available at each school as well.) All nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2022 An ACE Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award. One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County.
If you are a virtual student needing assistance with your Chromebook, please email Mrs. Doherty at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will try to help you via email or set up a time for you to drop off your broken Chromebook for a fixed one. Thanks!
