HEADLINES AND FEATURES
Every year our wonderful PTA lovingly gifts the Highland Terrace teachers and staff holiday cookies. Volunteers work hard during an all ready busy time of year to provide some festive delights for our teachers to enjoy as students and staff leave for the two weeks' vacation. Thank you PTA members for your thoughtfulness. Yum.
Introducing the New Highland Terrace Elementary Dean: We are excited to announce Wayne Hoskins has accepted the Highland Terrace Dean position. Mr. Hoskins, is currently one of our sixth grade teachers. Mr. Hoskins brings to our community a range of experiences with working with diverse students and families. He has a passion for creating inclusive environments, supporting students through a positive behavior approach, and developing students as leaders across grade levels. We are very excited to have Mr. Hoskins expand his work with students, families, and staff across our community.
Mr. Hoskins will remain teaching 6th grade until we are able to find a replacement for his teaching position. We extend our congratulations to Wayne and welcome him into this new role.
Second graders perform to entertain first lunch students!
Congratulations HT Teachers and PTA Leaders!

Thank You for Supporting the Scholastic
Thank you to all of our wonderful students, parents, grandparents, teachers, volunteers and PTA that helped make our Scholastic Book Fair a big success! We raised just over $6000.00 for the Library! The profit from your purchases bought new books for our school library. Other donations helped build classroom libraries through our "Teacher Wish List" program.
Thank you for all of your continued support. We couldn’t do it without you!
Until next year!
