Raffle:  The Highland school community has a couple months to enjoy the benefits of a unique fundraiser.  The first prize of the raffle is a 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum.  Second prize is two first-class, round-trip airline tickets anywhere in the world (restrictions apply – please see guidelines) and third prize is $5,000.

We get 100% of the ticket proceeds.  If each Highland family took responsibility for only one ticket sale it would be a good community challenge. The tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100.  If you are interested in getting tickets or helping to ‘sell’ tickets, please speak with Nick or Teresa.

Market Day: On Friday, October 6th, from 11 to noon, we will be having Market Day. Each student will have a space and will be selling their homemade products to fellow classmates (using Highland play money). Students can not make food items. Parents are welcome to attend the event.


Tax Credit: This is the perfect time to contribute to Highland via the tax credit program. Why wait until the winter holiday season when everyone is strapped for cash?!   Instead of letting the state decide where to use your state income tax, you can allocate your tax dollars directly to the charter school (up to $400)!   Every family should try to do the tax credit and/or find a friend or relative to contribute.  Any amount helps.  If you have any questions, please talk to Nick.   This is an important and painless way to help fund the school.

Halloween Carnival:  Highland will be having a Halloween carnival on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 31th.  Parental volunteers are needed to operate activity stations.  If you are available to help out that afternoon, if you would like to bring in treats or items for the stations, or if you have any nifty ideas about the activities we could have, please speak with Teresa.  Students will not be dressing up in costumes for Halloween.


Continuous Improvement Plan:  As required by ESSA, Highland creates and submits a list of yearly goals to the state.   If you are interested in reviewing our yearly goals, please speak with Teresa.
