CHRISTMAS CONCERT
This year's Christmas Concert, Thursday, Dec. 18th, will feature some "song and dance" from the animated movie Frozen (yes, the kids are excited -- it is going to be a lot of fun!).   We will provide Nordic-style felt vests for all students to go over their concert clothes. Students can wear plain colored turtlenecks or mock-turtlenecks or similar simple Nordic-style clothes.  **Your students are welcome to wear Scandinavian heritage costumes as well. Hats or heavy clothes might be too hot on stage.  Please contact Mr. Wilson if you have any questions (733-2081, pwilson@highwood.k12.mt.us).  

YEARBOOKS ARE HERE!!
The 2013-2014 yearbooks are now available! Stop by the school office to purchase your copy! Cost of the yearbook is $25.00.

COLD WEATHER CLOTHES
Just a reminder, now that cold winter is upon us, to send your children to school dressed appropriately for colder weather. A winter coat, snow pants, gloves, a hat and snow boots help your children have a more comfortable and enjoyable recess and provide extra safety during travels or an emergency. Thanks!

SMITHSONIAN FUNDRAISER
The Smithsonian students will be having their silent auction and bake sale during the Saturday, December 20th home basketball game. This is a great opportunity to complete your Christmas shopping while supporting the trip to Washington D.C. and other points on the eastern seaboard.

RIVALS STATE CHAMPTIONSHIP SHIRTS
Just in time for Christmas, Universal Athletics will have Rivals 2014 State Championship shirts available beginning next week.  If you would like to see the design feel free to stop in to Universal or email Mr. Gondeiro at bgondeiro@highwood.k12.mt.us and he will get back to you.  Thanks and congratulations again Rivals!

 

COMMUNITY NEWS

FOOD BANK NEWS
For the month of January only Food Bank will be on the 4th Thursday instead of the 3rd Thursday.  The date will be January 22nd.  Times will still be 3:30 P.M. to 5:00 P.M.

LEE WEDDING
Mike Lee, son of Rick and Janet Lee, is marrying Bridget Bruggeman on December 27th in Tell City, Indiana. As a show of love from Highwood, I am planning on mailing a box of wedding cards for Mike and Bridget to open when they open their gifts. If you’d like to send a wedding card and maybe your 2014 family Christmas photo, a box will be set up in the school office. Jayne Plouffe will collect them and get them sent off in time for the big day. The family hopes to have a Montana reception for the couple next summer.

PRAISE WORSHIP SERVICE
The monthly Praise & Worship service at the Highwood Community Methodist Church will be held on January 11 at 6:00 P.M.  All are invited.

BLOOD DRAWING
The High School youth group will be sponsoring a blood drawing on January 15, in the school cafeteria from 2:30 P.M.- 6:30 P.M.  You can call to set up a time or just stop in. The need for blood is constant and you can help. Call Susie Ripley (733-6251) for more info.
