On behalf of the Hillcrest Hornet school family, I welcome you!  My name is Cami Tapscott, and this is my first year as the principal at Hillcrest Elementary School.  At Hillcrest, we guarantee our classrooms will be student-centered with rigor, with a focus on standards-based instruction for all.  To ensure a successful learning environment, our staff works hard to develop each student’s social and emotional skills focusing on being respectful, responsible, and safe.  We are committed to meeting the needs of each individual student.

As we enter this school year, I am excited to get to meet each one of you.  Together, we will work as a team to do what is best for kids…because they deserve it!

Greetings Hillcrest Families!

I, and of course the staff, would like to welcome you to the 2023/2024 school year at Hillcrest Elementary. My name is Chris Lopez, and I am the Associate Principal here at Hillcrest. Some families might remember me from my time at Glenview Middle School working with older siblings and family members.  I will be working with students all year long on their social and emotional needs, mostly in the areas of making good choices and contributing to a positive school environment.  Parents and guardians can expect to hear from me from time to time to discuss their child regarding those choices and contributions.  The staff is committed to addressing all needs of students, and I am here to support them where I can.  

I look forward to a great school year and meeting everyone! Let's rock this year together!
