Dear High Plains Families,
Welcome back to a new and exciting school year! I would like to thank all of the High Plains parents who contribute their time, energy and talent to help make High Plains Elementary such an amazing school. The PTCO has been hard at work planning fun events for our High Plains community this year that we hope you and your family will enjoy!
A few highlights you can anticipate this year include:
- Mom's Night Out – An evening for moms at High Plains to enjoy a night out.
- Family Western Night – A western-themed night of food, music, dancing, games and activities at High Plains.
- Dads and Donuts –
morning for dads to enjoy donuts and coffee with their kids.
- Family Reading Night -
A chance to come to school in PJs, have some milk and cookies and listen to your
favorite teachers read their favorite books.
- Scholastic and Usborne Book Fairs – Add some great new books to your home library while helping our school earn new books for the High Plains Library.
- High Plains Auction - A fun social evening where you can bid on fantastic donated items.
- Family Fun Run – Lace up your running shoes for the 5k & 1 Mile Fun Run through our High Plains neighborhoods.
- Celebration of Culture - Formerly known as Taste of High Plains, this multicultural food tasting experience will be held in the fall.
- Spring Specials (formerly known as ArtVenture) - See all of the students’ artwork, listen to the Band and Choir perform, enjoy performances by the Super Skippers.
