Greetings Highlands Students, Parents, and Community,
I hope everyone enjoyed their summer and is ready for the 2023-2024 school year. As your new principal and an experienced administrator in 144, I am excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to meeting each one of our students, families, and community members.
Our first day of school for K-5 is Wednesday, August 23. Pre-K starts on Sept 5. Doors open for breakfast at 8:20 and school begins at 8:40, with dismissal at 2:55. Breakfast and lunch are free for all students, lunchtimes being dependent on their grade level.
The instructional portion of the school day consists of a 30-minute RTI reading and math block. This time is dedicated to improving and strengthening specific skills, a reading and language arts block, a math block, and a 30 minute “special” rotating between PE, Media, and Music. Students will continue to discuss and participate in activities related to their social and emotional well-being and can choose from a wealth of academic and non-academic extracurricular activities.
Our Meet the Teacher night is Wednesday, September 13 at 6 pm; the staff and I look forward to seeing you in attendance.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this letter. See you soon!
