Congratulations to the winners of the Highland Random Acts of Kindness month!
Highland students learned about honoring our Veterans through an assembly on November 9. Highland was honored to host Chief Master Sergeant Charles Wiley and Sergeant Jeffrey Harper of the 171st Air Refueling Wing Air National Guard. These men outlined the history of our flag and our country for our students. They explained how to show respect and honor to our country's Veterans. This interactive assembly included a lesson in how to salute and a lesson in basic marching steps and facing. Chief Master Sergeant Wiley and Sergeant Harper’s love and devotion to the USA was inspiring! We thank them for their time at Highland and their service to our country. Thank you also to Mrs. Croach, Highland music teacher, who opened the assembly with the playing of the National Anthem on the trumpet.
Through the generosity of the Beaver County Educational Trust, Highland's 3rd grade participated in a multi-disciplined learning unit on Mexican culture. The culminating project was a performance for family members and friends.
