Octoberfest Information

  • Hello Hilltop Families,

    Octoberfest is coming on Saturday, October 14th from 11 am- 3 pm! 

    Octoberfest is Hilltop's biggest fundraiser of the year which helps us fund so many wonderful things at Hilltop like Mr. Brett environmental learning, Art Adventure, the very popular book vending machine, supplies for the teachers, conference meals for teachers, scholarships for students in need, school improvements, recess equipment, A BRAND NEW PLAYGROUND and much more! Our goal each year is to raise $28,000 to fund all of these awesome things. We hope to raise even more this year to help complete the funding of our playground that is set to be installed on October 23. 

    Octoberfest is a super fun day where your kids can play carnival games, bounce in bounce houses, dunk Mr. Moch in the dunk tank, and win prizes to their heart's content. While your kids enjoy the fun games and activities, you can visit with your neighbors, meet new people, try your luck in the raffle, and bid on our AWESOME online silent auction! There will also by yummy food and treats, so you don’t even have to make lunch. It is a highlight of the year that you don't want to miss.

    Check your child's homework/take home folder THIS FRIDAY for a WHITE envelope which will tell you everything that you need to know!
