HOT WEATHER TIPS
PLEASE TAKE CAUTION!!
Now that the warm (HOT) weather is here, please send your students to school prepared! We recommend that every student has a water bottle that can be refilled throughout the day. Drinking fountains are working and available at various locations on campus. As temperatures rise, encourage your child to drink water at least 2 or 3 times per hour.
Sunscreen is also recommended as students are often outside for recess and PE. Thank you for being aware and helping to keep our students healthy and safe

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.

There are many programs offered that give the school money with little to no effort by you. Just grocery shopping or buying gas - things everyone does - can earn us free money! And Highlands can definitely use it! Please look at the following pages and make sure you sign up for these fantastic programs.
