It’s April and that means it’s Earth month! The Highcrest PTO Environmental Awareness Committee suspects that you are doing a great job reducing plastic, but if you’ve still got some plastic bags, good news.. you can now upcycle them in our lobby! Simply review the types of bags being collected in the attached list and you or your child can drop off CLEAN bags in the box in the Highcrest lobby. We will be collecting these clean plastic bags through the end of the school year. Thanks for helping keep the environment beautiful for our students, families and communities!

Enrichment programs are funded through PTO Membership and donations to the IGNITE campaign. 5th and 6th Grade Enrichment activities include both in-school programs (motivational speakers, science demonstrations, theatrical performances, history exhibits) as well as field trips outside the school.
Donate to iGNITE and get your new magnet sent to you via mail at the end of October/early November. Your iGNITE donations fund all our Enrichment programs at school such as field trips, science demonstrations, motivational speakers and more. Show your pride + support for our kids!

In assemblies with our students, Greg shared his story and discussed some of the seemingly small, oftentimes overlooked ways that kids can extend the positive impact they make at school and in the community. more >>
