Hey there Hillcrest Falcons!

How many of you heard that Channel 12 came to Hillcrest for a story on Emily’s Toys for Joy (ET4J)?  If not, then I will fill you in on all of the details!

On Monday, September 22, 2014 at around 10:00 a.m., Chris, a representative from Channel 12 News, arrived at Hillcrest to report on Emily’s Toys for Joy and interview Emily herself.  There was a lot of excitement and anticipation in the air. The Toy Team came dressed to impress in the custom t-shirts they made to support Emily’s Toys for Joy.

Mrs. Parrino was the first one to be interviewed. Chris asked Mrs. Parrino quite a few questions about her job, what she does, and of course questions about ET4J.   It was so interesting to watch a the interview process as the Toy Team was asked to sit behind Mrs. Parrino as she was being filmed on camera.

Next, Chris interviewed Emily.  Emily was awesome on camera and it was very cool to watch her shine! Both Emily and Mrs. Parrino did a fantastic job on camera!

Afterwards, Chris compiled footage of the Toy Team organizing the table with all of the donations from you (the awesome students and teachers at Hillcrest) and the Build-a-Bear donations from the Toy Team.  Did you know that Hillcrest was able to donate over 200 toys to Emily’s organization?  That is fantastic! Below is a picture of the Toy Team at Build-a-Bear.

All in all, it was an incredible opportunity and experience for Emily, Mrs. Parrino, and the Toy Team.  It is really nice to know that Hillcrest Middle School is making such a positive difference in our community and that the differences we are making are making a child’s day.  We should all be so proud that we helped out such an outstanding organization as Emily’s Toys for Joy.

After the video taping concluded, we all took a group photo with Chris which you can see below:
