What is ETS?

ETS is the district's Extra Targeted Services Program. The state offers additional funding for some before and after school programs and summer school. Students who are invited to participate are offered additional learning opportunities. Each grade tries to offer at least one ETS class during the school year. If you have any questions, please contact your child's homeroom teacher or

Attention 5th Grade Parents

Mark your calendars now for the 5th Grade Parent Information Night at Highivew Middle School on Tuesday, January 29 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m., with tours to follow from 7:15-8:00 p.m.

As parents, you will have the opportunity to meet teachers, tour the building, and learn about curriculum and opportunities available at Highview. This event is intended for parents only. The middle school deans will be going to the elementary schools to speak directly with students about what Highview has to offer at a later date. In addition, fifth grade students will have the opportunity to come visit Highview this spring during the school day.

We hope to see you there!
