naPrincipal's Message - 2022-2023

It is my pleasure to serve as the Proud Principal of Highlands Elementary School for a fifth year. I look forward to having the opportunity to continue moving Highlands Elementary forward in a direction that promotes student achievement, social emotional learning and safety. 


Along with the Highlands Board of Education, Dr. Beams and I are so excited to be unveiling the newest additions to our educational plan. This upcoming school year we are going to continue to build upon our Quest programming for enrichment learning, social emotional learning and differentiated education in each of our classrooms.
