JR Potthast baseball / Softball August Camp ***Instead of the normal big camp I usually hold, I have decided to do smaller group sessions: girls and boys mixed or not. Call for info!! Purpose: To prepare for Fall try outs – Middle school, and fall teams. College-age private sessions AGES: Middle school and up. Primarily a Pitch, hit, and throwing rotation camp. What ball rotation do I need to have on balls thrown from positions? Why is it the most important aspect of throwing a ball? Heavy on the hitting! Expect 1200 developmental swings for the older campers and 1000 swings for the younger campers! Dates: TBA: Bring H2O and work ethic. Location: South of tennis courts - Highland High School baseball cages Cost: tba: Group sizes of 9 and under. I suggest 3 sessions for best results!! For questions, please call 618-960-4467 – Mail check to JR Potthast, 50 trout dr. Highland, IL 62249

Dear Parents, Staff and Community Members: I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through the end of the 2019-20 school year. Although in-person learning has been suspended for the remainder of the year, at Highland CUSD No. 5, I assure you our entire staff remains committed to learning and engaging with all students through remote learning, as well as continuing with our food distribution program. Like you, we are saddened by the reality that our school community will not be able to reconvene in person this school year due to this public health crisis. So many of you have worked so hard to learn and grow in both the classroom and in extracurricular activities that today’s announcement may feel like a step back. However, the final chapter of this school year hasn’t been written yet. These past few weeks have proven our school community is more resilient, more capable and more compassionate than maybe what we previously realized. I’m confident our collective strength will shine through during the remainder of the school year, and we will emerge even stronger. Having said that, today’s announcement will result in significant and multiple scheduling changes in our district. As this announcement about the end of the school year was just made by Governor Pritzker this afternoon, it will take us a few days to sort out the many schedule details that are on the books, including spring concerts, promotion, graduation, etc. Please be patient as we work as a district to get information to you in the next several weeks. I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together. This period of Remote Learning offers us new ways to learn and grow, and out of this Pandemic, we will emerge stronger. Plans will be underway soon for the return to in-person learning next school year. It’s important we continue to work together and support our students. I can't thank you enough for all that you are doing as we all work together through this. Sincerely, Michael S. Sutton

Dear HMS Families, We are going to cancel our HMS Trivia Night for tonight Friday, March 13, 2020, in light of the recent meeting recommendations by state officials.  It is more important at this time to protect the health of all members of our community.   We hope to reschedule before the end of the school year, but we will have to wait and see how things progress to be sure. We will refund any money that has already been paid to attend. The Silent Auction items and basket items will  be held until we can reschedule when we feel it is safe to hold this event.  All tables will be held until we determine a future date for the event. Please contact the office if you would like a refund or you may wait until we reschedule.  Office contact info: 618-651-8800 or email kodle@highlandcusd5.org.

You may view your child’s 3rd quarter midterm grades after 3:00 pm on Tuesday, February 11, 2020, by accessing their grades through PowerSchool.

Please go to the following link to obtain your child’s midterm grades: https://ps.highlandcusd5.org/public/ If you are having trouble accessing PowerSchool, please call the HMS office at 651-8800 with questions or concerns.

I bet you didn't know you had some amazing young theatrical talent in 6th grade. Your students retold the ancient story of the "Epic of Gilgamesh." They went above and beyond with costumes, props, and some outstanding acting skills. It was pretty cool how "into" it the kids were. Audiences in the classes were super respectful, and there were some students that absolutely shocked me on how outgoing they were. Here are a couple pics to put a smile on ya.

HMS Parents, We are approximately halfway through 1st quarter. You may view your child’s 1st quarter midterm grades after 3:00 pm on Tuesday, September 17, 2019, by accessing their grades through PowerSchool. We will no longer send individual midterms and quarterly report cards home through email as PowerSchool allows parents and students to gain immediate access to grades. Throughout the year, reminder messages will be emailed home alerting parents when midterm and quarter grades will be available to view. Please go to the following link to obtain your child’s midterm grades: https://ps.highlandcusd5.org/public/ If you are having trouble accessing PowerSchool, please call the HMS office at 651-8800 with questions or concerns. Thanks so much, Liz Weder Principal

Caring for your child's mental health over summer break! By Lynette Dixon, PhD, LPC, NCC, CRAADC Summer is a time of year that students have looked forward to for as long as school attendance has been the norm in the United States. Songs such as "School's Out for Summer," demonstrate the sentiments that many hold for this precious time of year when demands are often lessened and students are free to enjoy the warm weather and extra time with family and friends. However, as celebrated as summer often is, it can be a difficult time for students who thrive on structure and more organized times for them to interact with their peers. The freedom of summer can be difficult for some students who may not be as well versed at organizing social interactions with peers and may lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation. Students may fall into patterns of sleeping late and the lounging around at home too often. While typical summer behavior that is enjoyed by many, engaging in less activity can lead to feelings of boredom, unproductivity, and can lead to an increase in depressive symptoms, especially for students who are already pre-disposed to this condition. Students who struggle with mental and emotional issues often receive a lot of support during the school year from caring teachers, school counselors, and other staff whom they form relationships with and who are able to more closely monitor how they are doing. Without the support of these caring relationships signs can go un-noticed. However, summer can provide a time for parents or other caregivers to reconnect with their children and make some lasting memories.  Here are some tips for parents to help their children take care of their mental health during summer break, as well as some signs to watch for: - Establish a summer routine. While summer is the perfect time to relax and embrace a slower pace, it is still important to maintain a routine so that children are continuing to engage in stimulating activities. - Practice healthy habits. Staying active, eating right, and practicing healthy sleep habits are important to maintain over the summer months. Our mental well-being is impacted by our physical health. - Encourage journal writing. This can provide an outlet for emotions. - Encourage children to start something new. Now can be the time to try something that they have always wanted to try. Embark on a new hobby or project. This can provide children with a sense of purpose and accomplishment. - Take extra time to engage in activities together. Family activities can be great, such as going to the park or tossing a ball back and forth after dinner. It can also be fun to spend some one-on-one time with each child during the summer months, such as a special breakfast with mom or dad, alternating which child to take out. These low pressure activities can open up some space for your child to share what is on his or her mind. - Keep an eye on their behavioral patterns. Many kids love to sleep late during the summer months, and this can be okay, but if they sleep for the majority of the day, no longer want to engage with others, experience extreme irritability, or if they stop engaging in activities that they once enjoyed, then this may be a cause for concern. - Watch for signs of excessive worry or concern, especially if the child also disengages from others or if they suddenly begin to engage in more sedentary activities. If you do notice any troubling signs with your child, starting a conversation with them can be a good place to start. It is also a good idea to consult with your pediatrician or even seek out a counseling appointment.

Our Food For Families Drive ends this Wednesday, and we are hoping to get more donations by tomorrow. All of the food donated goes to HACSM, the Highland Food Pantry, so everything you give is staying close to home. It is with great hopes that you will be able to give . . . if you can. As of right now, here are the standings in the advisories: 6th = Nave, 7th = Hubbard, and 8th = Schmitz. Each winning grade advisory wins a pizza party, as simple way of saying Thank You!!

The HMS Student Council would like to complete one more community service project before the end of the school year. We have chosen to participate in a food drive called "Food For Families", which benefits families in all of Madison County. We are especially excited, because our donations will go directly to the HACSM, our local food pantry. Last year, the drive collected over 17,100 pounds of food, with many local schools participating. Their goal this year is to collect 25,000 pounds of food, and we are excited to try to help them achieve this goal. Students may donate any of the items below and/or monetary donations. Food products are weighed, while each dollar donated equals a pound of food. This is our second year participating in the event, we do not have a set goal, but we are excited to find out what we can raise for this wonderful program. We are going to run this as an advisory competition from April 1st - 24th. The winning advisory, the one with the most weight collected, from each grade level will receive a pizza party. If you have any questions, please contact dhubbard@highlandcusd5.org or visit the FaceBook page "Food For Families Madison County". Thanks, Dawn Hubbard Suggestions For Donations: *Canned Beans *Canned Fruits *Canned Tomatoes *Canned Tomato Sauce *Canned Tomato Soup *Canned Tuna *Crackers *Cereal *Hamburger Helper *Jelly *Macaroni And Cheese *Oatmeal *Pancake Mix *Pancake Syrup *Peanut Butter *Pie Filling *Ramen Noodles *Spaghetti Pasta *Spaghetti Sauce (Please do not send big bulk items, as they are not easily transported, resulting in them possibly being left out of the weight total. In addition, please make sure you check expiration dates, as we cannot send these items either.)

We are excited to announce that we will be adding a new feature to our Glow Dance this Friday -- a photo booth!! The Fete Photo Booth takes pictures and then sends them to you via your phone or email, so you can easily share and/or print them. If you wish to participate in the photo booth, we will collect $2.00 at the door and stamp your hand, which will give you access to unlimited pictures throughout the event. We have attached some pictures from these photo booths, so you can see the excellent memories that are captured of your evening. Thanks, Dawn Hubbard
