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 taxes, you can allocate your tax dollars owed directly to the school.  You can give up to $200 as an individual taxpayer or $400 for couples.  Any amount helps…any questions please talk to Nick or Teresa.

Progress Report and Parent-Teacher Conferences:  Progress reports will be distributed on Tuesday, November 7th.  Parent-Teacher Conferences will take place on Thursday, November 9thNovember the 9th will be a half-day.  Students will not have lunch at school and should be picked up at noon.  There will be no extended day program. A sign-up sheet for conferences is located in your child’s class.

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.

Glow Festival:  On the evening of Saturday, November 18th, from 6-8 pm, we will be hosting a glow party at school.  There will fun-filled, glow-themed activities for the family.  We hope you are able to join us.

Thanksgiving Lunch:  We will be having a Thanksgiving pot-luck lunch on Tuesday, November 21st, at noon.  Families are invited to join us for a Thanksgiving meal.   More details and a sign-up will be coming soon.

Clothing Swap:  During Thanksgiving week, we will be having a clothing exchange.  You will have the opportunity to get some ‘new’ clothing items for your family without feeling the pinch on your wallet!  We are still looking for clothing that can fit kids from pre-school through middle school (up to adult size large).   Check your closets and bring in the clothing to Teresa.
