information from the school & district boards


     The school counseling department would like to survey parents, teachers, and students in order to develop and provide programs that meet the students' needs. This survey will help us determine the needs of the students individually as well as which topics we need to address in the classroom and small group sessions. The survey is anonymous, as we require no identifying information other than grade level unless you choose to add your student's name. We would appreciate your time answering the 10 questions below. Thank you for helping us better meet the needs of your children.

Personal Responsibility In Delivering Excellence

     Welcome Cowboys and Cowgirls to the start of what's going to be another fantastic year here at Highlands Elementary!!! We’re looking forward to this school year and planting seeds of greatness with each and every one of you. Slogans can only go so far, so we're planting the first seeds to lead by example around our Eagle's Nest Tree. We're looking forward to show just how impressive results can be from applying personal responsibility to delivering excellence down here on the ranch.
