Jayne Plouffe has taken on the task of “re-doing” the Highwood Community Directory for use here in Highwood. It has been several years since the Community Directory has been updated and published, several people have moved in or out of Highwood and it will be terrific to have a current directory. In order to put it together, she needs the following information from individuals who wish to be included: Names, address, and phone number. It is entirely up to you if you wish to include your cell phone number or email. If you do not wish to include your cell phone and/or email, simply do not supply that information. There will be a form available at the ticket table of home basketball games, or you can call Jayne at 733-2244, or you can email pgray@highwood.k12.mt.us or call the school office (733-2081).We have some long time Highwood residents who have recently moved. If they are your family members and they would like to be included, please add their information as well.
