The Highcroft Herald

Week of October 17-21, 2016


1. Trunk or Treat is right around the corner: Friday October 28th from 6-8 pm. You are welcome to bring your families and it is still not too late to sign up to host a trunk.

2. Aaron sent out the information on Veteran's Day to families and staff. It would be great to have our staff members contribute to our "Wall of Honor". You can add multiple veterans to our Wall of Honor as well.
