naPrincipal's Message - 7/9/2018

It is my pleasure to be your new principal of Highlands Elementary School. So much has been accomplished in the past few years and I look forward to having the opportunity to continue moving Highlands Elementary forward in a direction that promotes student achievement and safety.

Along with the Highlands Board of Education, Dr. Compton and I are so excited to be unveiling the newest addition to our educational plan with the addition of a new mathematics textbook series in grades K-5.  Additionally, we are pleased to make further enhancements to our "STEAM" based Makerspace through the addition of project based learning science kits. It is sure to pique the interest for all of our students' learning styles.

The faculty and I continue to be so very proud of the hard work of our students and we look forward to seeing continued growth in their reading and math levels and even more students who will embrace science and social studies. 

We also anticipate another school year of fun family events sponsored by the PTO. I know that the events will surely please all of our families. Your support by joining the PTO goes directly back to your children through activities, events and supplies.

Highlands Elementary School continues to provide a quality education. Pride, Tradition and Excellence are the tenets, which have made Highlands Elementary the best it can be. We are very proud to be a part of its 86-year legacy.
