Principal's Letter!

Dear Highland Families,

Today we did our first and last assembly of the school year, which felt amazing (albeit a little rusty). It was so nice to bring us all together as a community to celebrate the closing of a great year. To all of you, thank you so much for navigating the different challenges this year - I could not ask for a more supportive community. Please know I am grateful for you each and every day. I want to send kudos to our staff for creating such a great experience for our students this year. Their hard work and heart is felt in a big way every day. Last but not least, I am so appreciative of your children. I will miss them for the summer and I look forward to seeing them return in the fall - get fired up for the return of our Ice Cream Social the week before school starts!

I also have one more shout out for the Highland PTO! If you have not already put yourself on your contact list, please do - they are great resource for our community and our school is highly dependent upon them!

If your plans change and you won’t be joining us next year please fill out this form to let us know.

If you are looking for something fun to do, be sure to check out the “Highland Adventure Challenge” below; I look forward to collecting some fun images capturing the fun of summer! Thanks to Ashley for putting this together for us!

Please enjoy every minute of your time with your kids this summer - it goes quickly and there’s no turning back. Take care!
