During College Application Week facilitated by our College and Career Counselors, our senior participation was through the roof! 216 seniors completed college applications and FAFSA paperwork. This program and emphasis in assisting students complete all of the paperwork before the due dates is appreciated. Nice job Mrs. McConnell and Mrs. Butler. 


Parent and Community: 

Thank you to Allstate volunteer Steven Roberts for being a positive force for change in our community. Steven Roberts gave his time and enabled us to receive an Allstate Foundation Helping Hands in the Community grant. The Allstate Foundation supports the causes that Allstate agency owners, financial specialists and employees care about most by providing Helping Hands in the Community grants to nonprofits where they volunteer their time to bring out the good in their communities.


Kneaders Bakery donated $3,000 dollars to the Band and Cheer Programs at HHS! Thank you for your generosity and support.


Zak Paynter, a former HHS student, chose Hillcrest High School for a $100 corporate gift from his engineering firm in Pullman, WA. Thank you Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc.! 


THANK YOU Basic American Foods for the $10,000 donation toward purchasing a new inning by inning scoreboard for the Hillcrest Baseball Program!  


Mrs. Zohner and the Health Occupations students for organizing and working with the American Red Cross last Friday. HHS was responsible for presenting 67 blood donors and collecting 61 units of blood. Great job! 


A big thank you to the doctors at Grand Teton Gastroenterology for their combined donation of $300 to award our students that have perfect attendance throughout the year.  Dr. Behrend, Dr. Warner, and Dr. Williams all contributed.  We appreciate this valuable financial support and the help it will provide to our students.
