READ AROUND THE WORLD SUPERINTENDENT CHALLENGE
Mrs. Suberg discovered early on in the Read Around the World Challenge
that the Highwood Elementary students need a bigger challenge than
reading 24,901 pages in nine weeks. They truly are READING ROCK
STARS! We are at the mid-point of the third quarter, and the
elementary students have already made their way around the world one
time! Unbelievable! Consequently, Mrs. Suberg challenged
them to a second trip around the world. If the students read
another 24,901 pages by the end of the quarter, she agreed to dye her
hair a variety of bright colors for several days.
ANCIENT CHINA COMES TO HIGHWOOD
On March 8, at 7:00 P.M., the Highwood Coliseum will be transformed
into Imperial China! Our K-8th grade students have been working hard on
a musical version of the Hans Christian Andersen fable The Nightingale.
This beloved story is set in Han Dynasty China and explores themes of
friendship and loyalty. Mr. Wilson and Ms. Killeen are working
together with our
students in the music and choreography of this enchanting tale to bring
it to life. Thank you to all who have generously loaned us costume and
prop items! We are in need of a satin bathrobe or pajamas (size small
or adult) and mandarin collar shirts or jackets (size small or adult).
If you have a costume you can loan, please contact Gretchen Wilson at
733-6311 or email@example.com. Be sure to celebrate
reading this month by sharing this revered story with your
student. It is available in libraries or online in Han Christian
Andersen collections. As a family you can watch any of the many
versions of this classic tale on DVD or youtube.

CHALLENGE YOUR BRAIN, AMIGOS!
Adult Spanish classes, beginners level, will once again be offered at
the PEAK. This is a workout for your brain, and studies show that
learning a second language not only enhances your language &
speaking abilities in English, but also helps reduce
the possibilities of dementia & Alzheimers onset. Classes are very
interactive, with the goal to be able to engage in basic conversation
on a variety of topics. This is an enjoyable & low-stress way to
learn Spanish, and it's even more fun (&
cheaper) with a spouse, partner, or friend!
Classes are March 8 - April 26, 2017 on Wednesday nights from 6:15 P.M.
– 7:45 P.M. The class is being taught by Profesora Hiatt. Stop by the
Concierge’s or Service Desk at the PEAK to register or to get more
