Highland Families,

       This issue of the newsletter focuses on all the wonderful things happening at Highland. There exist so many opportunities for students and families to become involved in our educational community. Please take some time and read about these opportunities and become involved where your time permits. We love seeing parents in our building and feel that it is together that we make a greater difference in the lives of our children. I want to take this time to thank our HEPTO organization. They have raised many funds to provide items that enhance the education your student receives and sponsor after-school activities for our kids. All parents are invited to attend meetings and become involved. Take a look at the list of items and services our parents provide Highland students with monies received through all fundraising efforts.
