"Love in a Backpack"

Two Ambridge Area School District graduates gave back to the community by donating backpacks and supplies to Highland Elementary.



Students at Highland celebrated Autism Awareness Month in April. Students spread awareness and acceptance by learning more about Autism through fun videos and facts. Each Highland student colored an Autism Awareness ribbon to add to our display.


On Friday, April 21, 4th and 5th grade Highland Elementary students had a spectacular day visiting and touring Heinz Field. A very special thank you is extended to our adopted uncle, Mr. Chad O'Brien, for generously providing us with this awesome experience!


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.
