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.

Students, I want to thank you for all of your hard work you did during the first part of the school year and can’t wait to see you push yourselves as we enter 2017. Together we can make this the best year ever at Highlands…..Giddy Up Cowboys
