The Tri-District Review
Highlands Elementary School Climbs to Bronze Level Certification
Highlands Elementary School is proud to announce that, for the second time in school history, we have received recertification through 2024 as a Bronze Level Sustainable Jersey School.
Mr. Perkins and Mr. Layton, in collaboration with our school's Green Team Committee, worked on this process throughout the 2020-2021 school year. We are all extremely pleased to receive this prestigious designation. Our school's Green Team Committee, which is inclusive of students in grades 4-6, teachers, administration, and members of the BOE, is one of our most rewarding committees. Some future upcoming projects that we are working on include the sponsorship of local Highlands beach clean-up opportunities, applying for grant funding for additional water bottle filling stations, and trying to reduce the use of plastic straws within our school lunch program. In collaboration with the NEHS and their advisor, Miss Lebel, our Osprey Garden is thriving and adding to the lovely facade of our school's main entrance. Thank you to our school community volunteers, Mrs. Stockton, and Mrs. Hablitz for spot-checking and maintaining our beds along with our NEHS students throughout the summer.
