HPPS: Superintendent's Newsletter

From Dr. Kristina Nicosia

November 2022

Dear Highland Park Family,


I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I am beyond thankful for our students, faculty, staff, administrators, parents, caregivers, community members, and everyone who calls the district home. I am grateful to work in such a supportive community that deeply cares about our students. You help make our school system a great place to teach and learn.


We are a student-centered school community and, with that in mind, I would also like to encourage all of us, parents, guardians and educators, to celebrate the students in our lives this Thanksgiving season. The changes and adversity we are all still experiencing this year has been especially hard on our children and youth. So, no matter what your holiday celebrations look like this season, please take time to acknowledge and encourage the students in your family.


Be inspired by the season of giving with acts of kindness and graciousness. I wish you health and peace this Thanksgiving.


Very truly yours,

Dr. Nicosia
