Dear Highlands Families,

I hope your week with your scholar(s) was wonderful. We are excited to welcome them back to campus! We are thrilled to have more time with your students, and we are dedicated to reaching our goals!


Did you know that our campus goal is to increase the amount of students on grade level in math? We are on our way! Please help us by partnering with the campus and getting involved. Our first town hall meeting will be December 14, 2021. We hope to see you there!


We will continue to execute our mission of "Educate every child every day; whatever it takes!" We are Unleashing New Opportunities everyday because here at Highlands WE ARE UNO!


Sincerely,

Ms. Griffin
