BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
It is almost time for our school to make another Box Top
submission. We need to send in our collected Box Tops before
March because many of them will expire in that month. Please look
around and send in any Box Tops you have at home (or wherever you may
find them). Remember that all Box Tops money collected will be
used to purchase new library books. Please help us to continue to
build an amazing library collection for all of our kids to enjoy!
OUR FAVORITE BOOKS
February is I Love to Read month and a time to celebrate all the
fabulous readers we have at Highwood School. As part of the
celebration during February, there will be an I Love to Read dress-up
day every Wednesday. Students in grades Pre-K-12 are encouraged
to participate in the dress-up days. Because Dr. Seuss is a
childhood favorite of so many staff and students, the dress-up days
this year coordinate with Dr. Seuss books. The dress-up day
schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, February 20 Fox In Socks (Wear fun
or crazy socks.)
Wednesday, February 27 Oh, The Places You’ll
Go (Wear a college or school jersey/t-shirt or a
t-shirt from a place you’ve

final H.E.A.R.T. Reading on Wednesday, February 27, at 2:30.

The Masonic Lodge in Fort Benton is once again sponsoring the Bikes for
Books reading incentive during the third nine weeks of school.
Elementary students increase their chances of winning a bike with every

their four and a half week reading goals will be included in a pizza
party at mid-term. We thank the Masonic Lodge for their generous
support of our Highwood students.

SHOP WISH LIST
Highwood School has not offered a shop class for many years. As a
result, it is going to take time to stock the shop with all the
necessary tools. Mr. Zuhoski is doing an outstanding job building
a program from the ground up. Mrs. Suberg asked him to put
together a wish list of welding supplies to bring the shop up to
speed. Before the school makes a lot of purchases, we thought we
would see if anyone in the community has items on the list
they would donate to the shop program. Please contact the school
if you have an item you wish to donate. Thank you! Needed items
include: oxygen/acetylene welding kits, adjustable welding tables,
leather welding gloves, welding brush set 2 pk., welding chipping
hammers, gas welding carts, and a set of 52 welding bricks.
