Reading: The Key to Learning and Success

Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Highland Elementary School!


    I am hopeful this will be an exciting and educational year for everyone that walks through the doors of Highland Elementary School.  Our school theme this year is “Rocking In Our Learning Shoes”. This theme is associated with the children’s book series Pete the Cat.  Our Accelerated Reader Wall of Fame will display a variety of shoes.

    School will begin each day at 8:20 and end at 3:30.  Please remember, school attendance is extremely important and will be monitored closely.   Make sure you read the student handbook for more details.

    One of our main goals is teaching children to read.  Please help by reading to your child daily. In addition, once your child knows how to read, have them read for 15 minutes daily at their independent level.  Our hope is to instill a love for reading and learning that will last a lifetime.

    If your child has food allergies, special medication, or uses an inhaler, please contact the school at 468-6360, to obtain a form.  All medications must be delivered to the school office by a parent or authorized adult.  Students are not permitted to transport medication.

    I hope you will be actively involved in your child’s education.  I know this will be an exciting year!
