Mrs. Twedt Shares Passion for Adoption During 40-Days for Life
Throughout the year Chapel takes-on different flavors. Over the past few weeks Hillcrest Chapel services have revolved around a very well-done movie titled October Baby.
The film depicts a young adult's search for her birth mom. The failed abortion attempt now turned high school graduate takes the viewer through many emotions as she finds and ultimately forgives her biological mother while affirming the role of her adoptive parents.
This week's Hillcrest Halls gives you a perspective of what students hear in chapel. Mrs. Twedt shares her story and the story of some of her adopted children.
We try hard to give parents an honest perspective of what their students experience on a day-by-day basis at HLA. One of the ways we have elected to do this is through our series My Hillcrest Academy Highlights.
Students are armed with hand-held cameras. Using the waterproof and shock proof cameras students document various activites around Hillcrest.
This week Liz Peterson documented some of the happenings of a Friday night football game with her friends in the Comet Cafe.
