Welcome Hillcrest Families!

My name is Don Gramenz and I’m so honored and excited to be the Interim Principal of Hillcrest Community School for the 2019-20 academic school year.

I have been in the Bloomington Public Schools for 16 years. I was an elementary teacher at Washburn Elementary School for 11 years, a district-wide Q-comp peer coach for 4 years and a Dean of Students at Kennedy High School last year. Prior to becoming a teacher in Bloomington, I was a professional soccer player for 9 years and a professional soccer coach for 2 years.

I look forward to collaborating with you, your student and Hillcrest staff to create a nurturing learning environment so we all reach and perform at our full potential. 

My door is always open and I look forward to meeting you!


Don Gramenz

Interim Principal
