GARDEN PARENTS ORIENTATION
This year's Garden Parent Orientation will be held this Thursday morning, Sep. 6 at 8:15 a.m. in the school garden. Both experienced and new garden parents should attend. Everyone is welcome, including parents who are considering being a garden parent but who haven't signed up yet. If you have signed up to be a garden parent but cannot attend the orientation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, and see you Thursday morning!
ROOM PARENT MEETING
Room parent orientation will be held on Thursday 6 September at 6pm in the LGI. Please attend even if you are a returning room parent as there might be new ways we will be addressing old issues and you might also be able to contribute your experiences to the new volunteers.
FAMILY DINING DAY
Tired of cooking?!? Take a day off and make plans to dine at Celia's on Campus Drive in Laurelwood on Wednesday, September 5th.
WE GIVE BECAUSE WHILE A PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION IS FREE, AN ENRICHED EDUCATION IS NOT
We have chosen Highlands Elementary School because we want the best public school education for our children. Contributions to the Highland’s SMART Fund are used entirely to support enrichment programs and services for our students.
SMART represents the primary focus areas of Highlands PTA’s fundraising efforts: Science, Math, Art, Reading and Technology. These areas are our primary focus, but we also fund other activities to help support the whole child. The SMART Fund is managed in conjunction with other fundraising efforts by the Highlands Elementary School PTA.
Please donate to support these Highlands SMART fund and our children. Everyone can help and make a difference, and we are striving for 100% participation from our parent community.
