Fiesta Auction: Thank you!
Thank you to everyone that came together at crunch time to make the Fiesta Auction a great event. The volunteer turn out just prior to and on auction day and night was so great that there’s just too many to list here. Thank you very much to each and every one of you- parents and teachers. Thank you to everyone who came out, had fun and bid. We raised over $14,000 after expenses. Thank you to everyone that supported this event. We hope your children enjoyed seeing their multi-use room decorated so festive.
We also have a few items still for sale. If you’d like to click the attached link for a listing and detailed description of those items.

Teacher Wish Lists Online
Highlands PTA has created an account with www.teacherwishlist.com. We have asked our teachers to create a list of items they may need for their classrooms. Please take a moment to see if your child's teacher has started a list. If not, maybe you could offer to help get them started. This is a fast and easy way for the teachers to communicate their needs.
