Olivia Huellen, a 6th grade student at State Street Elementary was recently recognized as the first place winner of the Caring Place poster contest. The Caring Place, developed in Pittsburgh in 1997 provides support for grieving children, adolescents and their families. The organization also provides partnerships with schools and training for school professionals across the state. Olivia’s poster will be displayed in all 501 school districts and other public venues throughout the state. We are very proud of Olivia for her accomplishment! This is the second year in a row that a student from State Street has won the contest.
Here are some photos from Highland Parental Engagement Event!
2nd Grade: Students are creating pet rocks and designing playground equipment that can hold their pet rocks. Students will work as a team to design and create a twisty slide, jungle gym, and other playground equipment.
1st Grade: Students are designing and building houses for the 3 Little Pigs. The structures should be strong enough to withstand a puff of air from Big Bad Wolf (a blowdryer)!
These first grade girls constructed a house out of bricks to keep their pigs safe from the Big Bad Wolf.
Kindergarten: Students will be completing nursery rhyme STEAM challenges! We have completed challenges from Humpty Dumpty and Hey Diddle, Diddle.
These kindergarten students created an egg protector for their Humpty Dumpty egg drop.

Donations were collected and will be given to the Caring Place. The photos below were taken at the High School and Highland Elementary. Thanks to all of the buildings that participated.
