Highland PTO News
By Kristy Generalski
The Highland PTO strives to enhance educational opportunities and contribute to the needs of teacher’s and classrooms. So far, we’ve had a great year!
The PTO Board has approved the following grants that we have received so far this year.
• New library books for Highland Primary and Elementary.
• Transportation cost for Ms. Rinderer’s class to go to Mills Apple Farm.
• Friendship Fair Bags for the First Grade Friendship Fair that Wendy Phillips heads each year.
• PTO purchased new Box Top containers for each classroom at the Primary & Elementary to promote bringing more Box Tops in.
In other news, at the end of last school year the PTO held a design contest for the HHS Art students to create an original design for
our Spirit Wear T-Shirt. We had some wonderful entries. Whitney R., an eleventh grade student this year, won the contest. She did an
excellent job capturing what HCUSD5 represents. She received a gift certificate, along with two free shirts. We will be running another
contest for the 2017-2018 spirit wear. We are excited to see the designs the art students come up with!
Also, the past few years the PTO has put together the Bulldog Raffle for a spring fundraiser. This year we decided take a break from
it and try something new. Those plans will be announced at a later date.
