HES 5th Grade Back to School Picnic!

We are already making big plans for next year, your child’s LAST year at Highland!  We are hoping that it will be a memorable year, one that your child will look back on for years to come.  To start the year out right, we are inviting you and your “5th grader” to a Back to School Picnic on Monday, August 3rd at 5:30 pm in Shelter 3 at Yellow Creek Park.  We hope that everyone can make it because we are looking forward to getting to know you and your child before the school year starts.  This picnic will also include a brief presentation for the parents so that they can catch a glimpse of what their child’s 5th grade year will entail!  For more info, click HERE. We can’t wait to see you there! Enjoy your summer!
