The Highland Parent Board
The Highland Parent Association is comprised of ALL the parents at Highland, and the Executive Board consisting of 9 dedicated parents that push the agenda of supporting our 2018-2019 theme “Children First!”. The responsibility of the Executive Board is to ensure we are offering quality experiences that support the students at The Highland School. ” Well Done” to all the students, parents, and staff that supported the vision!
The Highland Parent Association was able to continue implementing after school extracurricular activities. Thus far, the African Drumming, Dance, Public Speaking and Martial Arts have been a huge success. This year we also added art classes, which was a hit with the children. Our two annual fundraisers, The Fall Festival, and The Applebee’s Breakfast were a huge success as well. These fundraisers allow us to financially support various needs and programs in the school. This year we were able to purchase the drums for the Highland Drum Line, as well as celebrating the staff on Teacher Appreciation Day.
The Parent Association will continue its efforts to promote the children’s educational success, encourage strong parent/family involvement as well as, expose students to the importance of community awareness.
We function because of all contributions – those parents who spearheaded committees, and those who did behind the scenes committee work. Whether contributions to our vision are big or small they are appreciated. We are fortunate because The Highland School Administration and staff support the vision and we work together to bring it to fruition.
