Canyons District is hosting two Open Houses in Hillcrest’s cafeteria to introduce the new head Husky to the community.

Greg Leavitt, the current Draper Park Middle Principal who is taking the Hillcrest reins next year, also wants to hear from students, parents, teachers and community supporters about their ideas to continue Hillcrest’s tradition of excellence.

The Open Houses will be:
  • Monday, April 27, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 29, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Leavitt is replacing Sue Malone, who is retiring after serving for more than three decades in schools.
Canyons District wants to ease the first-day-of-school jitters for students who are entering middle and high school this year.

To the end of helping students acclimate to their new, bigger surroundings, all CSD middle and high schools are hosting orientations for secondary-school first-timers on Aug. 19 — the day before the official first day of the 2014-2105 school year.

The events, organized annual in CSD, give students a chance to find their classes and the cafeteria, open their lockers, and meet teachers and classmates.
