Personal Responsibility In Delivering Excellence

Dear Students and Parents: 

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  I am honored to be a Highlands Cowboy and to serve as the principal of such an awesome, caring community!    This year begins my 26th year as an educator and the sixth year serving in the Osceola County School District.

The staff at HLES is a dedicated group of educators committed to creating an environment of high academic expectations where all individuals grow to their greatest potential.   Students will be reading, writing, talking and solving in every content, every lesson every day.  What does that mean?  It means Highlands students will be a part of a college and career readiness culture that will equip them with the tools necessary to be successful today, tomorrow, and in years to come.

The road to success begins at Highlands Elementary.  Working together with you as a team, Highlands students will embark on a year filled with academic, social and emotional successes. Together we will work to prepare your child for many new and exciting opportunities. We look forward to building on the skills and strategies they bring with them this school year.

It is our goal to keep our community involved in and informed of all the great things happening at Highlands Elementary.  To stay connected, visit our website and Instagram @hlescowboypride to view important information and current happenings.  You will also be getting important updates and messages through REMIND.  Throughout the year, if you need help, please stop by the front office where we are more than happy to assist you.  You can also contact me directly through email at patricia.cummins@osceolaschools.net

Thank YOU for your constant support in your child’s education! Highlands Elementary is a place where students, staff, parents and our community belong!   It’s going to be an EPIC year at Highlands Elementary School!

Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day!
