Tax Credit: If you have not yet filed your income tax, please think of Highland before you write a check to the state of Arizona! The state extended the time allotted to make a school tax credit contribution up to tax day. You can redirect your tax payment to Highland for any amount up to $200 for individual filers and $400 for couples. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask us!
Testing: The AZMerit test will be administered to the 3rd– 5th graders this week. It is extremely important that your child comes to school on time and is well fed and rested.
Summer Program: We will hold a five-week summer program (from May 30th –June 30th). The program would be full day; students can be dropped off as early as 7:30 and picked up as late as 4:30. The entire program will cost $750. A $100 scholarship may be available (upon request) that can lower the cost of the program to $650. If you are not interested in having your child attend for the entire program, the daily rate is $35. There is also a registration fee of $20 per student. Each day will generally consist of academic tutoring, music, water-play, arts and crafts and other activities.
Note: Families with more than one student attending will receive a 20% discount in tuition for each additional enrollee. Title I students are eligible for a discounted rate.
Calendars: Some families still have not taken care of their calendar responsibilities. If you are not sure whether you returned your donation money, please check with Nick or Teresa.
Raffle: We have tickets for a raffle of a 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum. There are also second and third place prizes! [Second prize is two first-class, round-trip airline tickets anywhere in the world and third prize is $5,000.] The best part is that the school gets to keep all of the proceeds from the ticket sales. The tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100. We need your help to make this fundraising effort a success. How about a school challenge? If each family sold two or three tickets this would be a great fund-raiser!
