BE AWARE, SHOW YOU CARE: GET YOUR PINK ON!
The student council, together with the volleyball team, invites you to GET YOUR PINK ON for the last home volleyball game against Centerville on Friday, October 24. Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we want to honor the memory of those who lost the battle with breast cancer and celebrate the survivors who fought the battle and won! Our goal is to fill the Highwood Coliseum with pink!
BOW HUNTING GRANT
Mrs. Aaring is pursuing a grant, available through Montana Fish and Wildlife, that would make it possible to introduce bow hunting as an option for a Highwood after-school program. If awarded, Highwood would receive curriculum materials and equipment. PEAK would provide funding for salaries, but having someone who is skilled in the area is the most difficult item. Any parent or community member who would be interested in teaching an afternoon class or Saturday program to intermediate/middle or high school students on bow hunting, please contact Becky at the school at 733-2081 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Highwood's First Lego League- Robotics Team has begun! Students grades 4th-8th are invited to join us in an exciting time of Lego building, robot design, computer programming, team building and problem solving. This is a student-led, coach-facilitated group that will be meeting weekly from 3:15-5:00 p.m. on Thursdays from now through January. Come join us for an exhilarating time of learning and growth! We are also looking for community members willing to mentor the students while they work on areas such as engineering, graphic design, mechanics, and other applications. For more information, contact Mrs. DeBorde or Mrs. Goodemoot.
|BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION CONTEST!|
This year the grade school is having a competition to see which class can collect the MOST Box Tops. The class who collects the most will earn a special party after our final submission date, in March!
Your child can bring them to school, in a baggie. Then attach them to the collection sheet for your class, or ask your child to bring a collection sheet home, and they can prepare their Box Tops from home. (Just make sure you include your teacher’s name, so your class will get credit.)
If the entire grade school can collect enough Box Tops to earn a total of $500, we will get to take a trip to the movie theater, to celebrate reaching our goal!!!
Please be sure to check the expiration date, as Box Tops will not accept any expired pieces.
If you have Box Tops, send them to school with your favorite Mountaineer.
HIGHWOOD PUBLIC LIBRARY HOURS
The library is still open to the public during the school year! Come by and see us Wednesdays and Thursdays 1:15-3:15pm. We have some new books out just for Halloween! The library will only be open on days that school is in session.
HALLOWEEN HARVEST FAIR
On Halloween Peter and Molly Wilson are helping to put on the 3rd Annual "Harvest Fair" down at the Highwood Community Hall. It will be from 5:00 – 7:00 PM and is designed for families to either just drop-in, or stay longer. Like last year there will be lots of stations/games: bobbing for apples, pumpkin decorating, a "leaf pit," "fishing pond," "shoot the apple off William Tell," etc. We also hope to have some old-fashioned barn dancing and music with some musicians from Great Falls. Refreshments will also be available. If any of you have ideas, they would love them… if you want to help the night-of, wonderful… if you want to provide some snacks, that'd be great… if you want to decorate, they'd love it... if you want to provide some "workers" (aka students needing community service… etc.), that'd be great… if you want your class/group to put on a "station" or game, that'd be super…. and so on… Please contact Molly or Peter, 733-6815, if you want to be a part of this and, please, spread the word!
