Dear Highland Family,


October was a busy month here at Highland!  Our Pre-K and Kindergarten students took field trips to the pumpkin patch.  Firefighter Phil visited our students to talk about fire safety. The PTO’s Fall Fest offered students Halloween themed crafts and games.  The Halloween dance raised over $1,000 to support the Highland Helpers pantry.  Through our Title I Literacy Festival, our teachers shared reading strategies for parents to use when working with their students at home.  In addition, despite the rain, we had a wonderful Halloween complete with our annual parade and parties. 


November promises to be another exciting month here at Highland.  Some of the highlights for this month include:

·        PTO Spirit Week – November 13-16

·        Veteran’s Day Celebration – November 13

·        “Grinch who stole Christmas” Parents Night Out – November 30

We hope to see all Highland students participating in these activities.


It’s hard to believe that we have already a quarter of the way through the school year.  We are so proud of the growth that our students have shown.  Teachers are excited to meet with parents on Tuesday, November 6 for parent-teacher conferences.  If you would like to meet with your child’s teacher, please be sure to reach out and schedule a time.  Please remember that this year, paper report cards will not be sent home.  Instead, parents will be able to access these documents via Tyler beginning on November 13th. 

Thank you for your support of Highland.
