STRONG FRIDAYS-A CHANGE TO MOUNTAINEER PRIDE DAY!
It’s a good to change things up once in awhile. Starting tomorrow, November 18, staff and students must be wearing their Highwood STRONG shirts to be eligible for the Mountaineer Pride drawings. Every student and staff member has a STRONG shirt, so we want to encourage school unity by wearing them on Fridays.

ANNUAL THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE HUNGER GAMES HEATING UP!
In cooperation with the local food bank, Highwood School will once again be providing Thanksgiving food baskets to families in our community through our annual November food drive. BUT instead of gathering food items this year, we have been collecting money during November to purchase the items for the food baskets. Everyone enjoys a little competition, so in the spirit of THE HUNGER GAMES, the Highwood Staff was divided into several districts. Each district has a money jar in the lunchroom clearly labeled with the names of its residents (staff members). The residents of the district whose jar has the most money at the end of the day on November 20 will get a pie-in-the-face at a school-wide assembly on November 21. We’re hoping the opportunity to feed the hungry; as well as to see a favorite, teacher, cook, coach or custodian take a pie-in-the-face will encourage students to contribute to the cause. Thank you in advance for your support of our annual Thanksgiving food drive. For many years, our generous community has made a positive difference in the lives of fellow community members at Thanksgiving time!

MIDDLE SCHOOL WREATH SALES
Thank you to everyone who purchased a wreath to support our middle school! To help ensure fresh wreaths for our faithful customers, we are asking you to pick up your wreaths at the BOR building on Monday or Tuesday, November 27 and 28, from 2:30 to 4:30 P.M.  This method of delivery proved very successful last year.  If these dates do not work for you, please let us know and we will make arrangements for delivery or after hour pick-ups.  Our goal is to be flexible in seeking ways to make the delivery work for everyone.  In the past, many of our enthusiastic middle schoolers have sold a lot of wreaths.  Unfortunately, middle school students cannot drive, so the burden of delivery fell on the families of these students.  We appreciate your willingness to be part of the solution by picking up your wreaths at the school.   Because there is a great deal of fundraising for other activities in the school, the middle school is limited to this single project to fund the educational field trip in the spring.  Thank you for the support you continually show to our kiddos!   Please contact the school if you have any questions.

16TH ANNUAL REMEMBRANCE TREES
The holidays are a wonderful time for family and friends.  They are also a time for remembering loved ones who are no longer living.  It’s hard to believe that the Remembrance Tree tradition is 16 years old.  The High School Student Council is once again sponsoring the annual Remembrance Tree program to honor and celebrate the lives of our loved ones who are deceased.  Christmas trees filled with lights to honor these individuals will be on display in front of the school from November 26 until New Year’s Day. Bulbs, in memory of friends or loved ones, may be purchased for $5.00.  Orders for bulbs must be received by Friday, November 24, 2016.  A lighting ceremony for the Remembrance Trees is scheduled for Sunday, November 26, at 4:30 P.M.  Those who purchase bulbs are invited to add their bulbs to the tree when the names of their loved ones are read during the ceremony.  The community is invited to attend the lighting ceremony on November 26.  The lighting of the community Christmas tree will be held in conjunction with the Remembrance Tree ceremony!  In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved inside. Order forms were mailed and they are available in the school office or you may also call the school office to place an order.  (733-2081) Proceeds from the Remembrance Trees are used to purchase Christmas gifts for underprivileged children in Chouteau County.


COMMUNITY NEWS


CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES TO BROWNING
For the past couple of years, the Highwood Community Methodist Church has participated in putting together wrapped Christmas shoeboxes filled with gift items and clothing for the children of the Blackfoot Reservation in Browning. Last year the Blackfoot Parish distributed over 1000 Christmas shoeboxes throughout the reservation. For many of these children, this is the only Christmas present they receive.  Anyone in the community is invited to participate by putting a shoebox together. The boxes need to be wrapped with a tag indicating whether it is for a boy or girl and the age the items are appropriate for. Shoeboxes need to be completed and dropped off with Pat Gray at the school no later than December 1. Please contact Dorothy Forder at 452-9318 for additional details

LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS
The Highwood Rural Volunteer Fire Department is considering sponsoring a 40 hour EMR (Emergency Medical Response) class in an effort to have more trained people in the area that can respond to emergency medical calls. The class will be held at the fire hall or the community hall, depending on the number of registrants for the class. The class takes three months to complete and will start after the first of the year. Class time consists of one Tuesday evening each week and one Saturday a month. The fire department will arrange for childcare during class time if there is a need.

We need to know how many people are interested and plan to take the class. There may be a possibility to work these training hours into serving on the volunteer fire department, where after 20 years of volunteer service you would be eligible for retirement benefits.  Please speak with Richard Hartman for complete details regarding volunteering. This opportunity is open to both men and women. Please respond by December 26 by calling Richard Hartman at 733-2053.
