Practices will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays after school until 5:00PM. The performance will happen on Friday, May 15. Come out and have some fun! NOTE: All participating students must bring a signed permission form—included in this week’s packet—on March 20.

Multicultural Potluck/Diversity Fair

Save the date for Highland’s annual Multicultural Potluck/Diversity Fair! It will be held in the cafeteria on Friday, May 8 from 4:30–6:30PM. Professional performances will include Korean Fan Dancers and a drum workshop by Doc Gibbs from the Emeril Live Band. Would you like to share about your culture?

Reminder: AEF Family Fun Night

Reminder: Spring Fling Used Book Drive

With the snow still outside, it’s hard to believe that Spring Fling is coming up, but it is—and we’re starting to get ready! We are beginning to collect used books for the Spring Fling Book Sale. The collection box is in front of the Highland library. Please bring in your used books so we can raise money AND re-circulate good books! Thank you!
