PTA forms are going home this week. This organization is a vital part of our HGF community. Over the years they have helped in so many ways, especially for our students. Please consider joining.

Our first virtual PTA meeting is October 13, 2021 from 6:00-7:00. A link will be sent out before the meeting. Thank you!

Important Forms for Parents!

Dear Parents,

We are asking that you please fill out the free and reduced lunch form. This form is important because it will determine our Title I status, which provides Highland with money to hire teachers to work with students and also provides us with resources that we would not otherwise be able to afford. Last year, we did not make our numbers and we went from a Title I School to a Targeted Title I School, which means we have less money to spend on students, and the money can only be spent on certain students. When we are a whole school Title I, all students benefit. Please partner with us in helping our students!

Thank you!
