MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL, MR. MARTINSEN It is hard to believe that Fall Break is here already! Next week the campus will be quiet and the students will be on a different schedule. Some students will travel all week, some will take day trips, some will stay home, some will be on campus in Child Care, and others will spend the time playing with friends. Regardless of what your children do, it will be different from this week. No matter what you and your family do next week, I wish you a restful and relaxing time. If you are traveling, please have a safe journey, enjoy the time away and return safely. If you are staying in the SCV, as I am, enjoy the extra time you get to spend with your children. I have the great opportunity to spend time with my children during the week that I normally do not get. I will be a parent volunteer in each of my children’s classes next week. I will spend two days working with groups, making copies, cutting and pasting. I can’t wait! I hope you are looking forward to next week as much as I am! RESPECTFUL HIGHLANDS HEROES - Week # 5…last week recognizing Respect W e are recognizing our awesome students who exemplify the “Pillars of Good Character.” This week, we are recognizing Highlands students whose teachers feel that they are respectful people.

GENERAL MILLS BOX TOPS, CAMPBELL'S LABELS FOR EDUCATION & TYSON PROJECT A+ CONTEST With constant budget cuts, it is more important than ever that we, as parents, do as much as we can to help support and contribute to the special programs that help Highlands raise much needed funds.
