Welcome to Halecrest Elementary!

Halecrest roadrunner mascotHalecrest Elementary is an amazing school that invests in "growing" respectful and responsible young adults. Student progress in social emotional categories and character development is equally important as academics at Halecrest. Halecrest has always believed in developing the whole child. Students are recognized monthly, during a school-wide assembly, for embodying the strengths which promote good citizenship and character. Beyond the school day, students have many opportunities for extra curricular enrichment: Sing n' Speak Spanish, Robotics Club, Heartlight Dance, Academic Chess, 21 different field trip opportunities, DASH, Extended Day Program, Mad Science, Christian Youth Theater (CYT), basketball, soccer, flag football, Mileage Running Club, Safety Patrol, and Student Council. Halecrest has Curriculum Night, Fall Festival, a Multi-Cultural Fair, Literacy Week, family movie nights, Folk Dance Festival, and many other fun events. Halecrest continues to support year-round visual and performing art classes. Student, parent, and community involvement is a priority at Halecrest. We hold parent Workshops throughout the year.
