HEADLINES AND FEATURES
Congratulations HT Teachers and PTA Leaders!
Educators of the Year:
The Golden Apple/Outstanding Educator award recognizes a teacher, assistant, custodian, bus driver or administrator who has contributed their time and talents to providing educational opportunities for students beyond the normal scope of their jobs. This year the teachers receiving this honor are Mrs. Avery Slinning (Third Grade) and Mrs. Donna Hoffman (Learning Assistance Program).
Volunteers of the Year:
The Golden Acorn/Outstanding Volunteer award recognizes a volunteer who has contributed to our children and the community in an exceptional way. A Golden Acorn Award is very special and is given for continued and dedicated service. This year the volunteers receiving this honor are Nicolle Rutherford and Becky Logan.
UPLOAD YOUR CLASSROOM PHOTOS FOR THE YEARBOOK!Did you know that you can collect your candids and upload them into Pictavo for our 2017-18 yearbook? There is a folder for each grade level as well as a folder for HT’s big events (Move-A-Thon, Pancake Breakfast, Science Night, etc.). We are now collecting photos of our students and classrooms to be selected for our yearbook’s candid pages. See the last page of this Bulletin for picture upload instructions.
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!
Highland Terrace Elementary
We are very excited for the first day of school on Wednesday, September 6 for grades 1-12 and Monday, September 11 for kindergarten.
Here is a link to the 2017-2018 school year calendar with all of the important dates to be aware of for this school year. You will receive a full wall calendar in the mail in mid-August.
We also want to take this opportunity to provide you with some advanced notice of changes to the 2018-2019 school year calendar.
Next school year, the first day of school will be on Wednesday, August 29, 2018. Please note that this is a change from past years, when we have begun after Labor Day. While there are pros and cons for starting before or after the holiday, we believe the pre-Labor Day start date better supports our educational mission by meeting the needs of students participating in advanced placement courses, athletics and/or student activities, such as cheer, flags, band, etc. that support the start of school.
Here is a link to an outline of the 2018-2019 school year calendar, listing the first and last days of school, breaks and holidays for next school year. Dates for conferences and non-student staff work days will be set and shared in the spring. We hope you find this information helpful as you plan for trips and childcare for the 2018-2019 school year.
We hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing you back for the first days of school on September 6 for grades 1-12 and September 11 for kindergarten.
We need an Abundance to make our library run smoothly!
The Highland Terrace Library is a wonderful, busy place with excellent resources for students, staff, and parents to share. Volunteers assist with shelving books, decorating library with bulletin boards and displays, sometimes help with routine circulation desk tasks, sometimes help students locate materials, and help with light cleaning. Thank you for your interest in helping our students in the library! Your active participation shows your children how much you value libraries, books, and reading -- a powerful message! HT Librarian, Mrs. Alicia Wilson
