Field trip to fest
The Hillcrest Elementary School second and third grade classes took a field trip to the Flint Hills International Children's Festival in St. Paul on May 30. At the Ordway, the second grade students enjoyed a drum performance titled "World of Rhythm" while the third grade enjoyed the story of "Zorro." The students also participated in many festivities outside, visited The Story Time Garden and saw many different outdoor artists perform. Some students even tried out breakdancing! According to a few Hillcrest teachers, "The Ellsworth community can be very proud of the way the students represented their school at this fun event. Also, special appreciation to Target for sponsoring the school (paying for the bus trip) and also to the parent chaperones."
