Dear Parent/Guardian

The “HLES HIKES” walk-a-thon was awesome! We had plenty of fun in the sun for a great cause. Thank you for supporting your child and Highlands Elementary. Now that all the sponsor sheets have been turned in and calculated, the collection process can begin. Attached with a copy of your child’s original sponsor sheet, we have highlighted the total for pledges due. Please assist your child in collecting all money and checks due, and place them in an envelope or baggie. You should include your child’s name, grade, teacher, and dollar amount enclosed. Remember, all checks must be made out to Highlands Elementary and should include a printed address. (If phone number is not printed on the check, you may write it in.) The collection deadline is April 7th.

Thanks again for your support!

I want to extend to each family of Highlands Elementary a Happy and Joyous New Year. As we enter 2017, let’s do so with a renewed commitment to creating an environment of high expectations, where all individuals through support, intervention, and enrichment, grow to their greatest potential.

I’d like to thank our teachers and staff for all of their extra time and effort they have put in to increase student achievement at Highlands Elementary. Our staff puts forth countless hours of planning, preparation, and professional development in order to better teaching and learning strategies to assists all of our students. The staff at HLES are a dedicated group of people always looking out for what is best for our students and school. I want all of them to know that I truly appreciate their hard work and efforts.

Parents, volunteers, and business partners, I also want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to work with your children at home on homework and projects that reinforce the concepts they are learning at school. The time you take each day to assist your child is a key component to his/her academic success.
