Scooter Spectacular
Scooter Spectacular
Scooter Spectacular is a wonderful new fundraiser that Highland students will be participating in during the next couple of weeks. Our goal is to help some of our foster families in our county by purchasing, assembling, and finally delivering a few brand new scooters and safety accessories in time for the holiday season!

Our plan- We are going to do this by purchasing scooters, helmets, knee pads for children in need in our community.

We have two fundraising activities:
  • Sell of Poppers (which are filled with small candy and a few even have gift cards inside.) These will be sold during the week of September 25-September 28th (or until we run out!) Cost is 50 cents for small popper and $1.00 for a large popper.
  • Scooter Raffle our students will have the opportunity to win a scooter that is on display!
    • The Raffle will run from October 2- October 6. ( Cost is 50 cents for one ticket or $1.00 for 3 tickets.)
    • The drawing for the HMS lucky winner will be on October 9th!
    • Many thanks to Micro Kickboard Scooters from Michigan who donated the scooter.  Retail value - $149.99

Highland Volunteers
Would you be willing to help the HMS PTO this year or would you like to receive emails with minutes from our PTO Meetings? If so, please fill out the Volunteer Form and have your child turn it in to his/her Homeroom teacher. The students will be given a hard copy of this form in school this week to bring home.
Additionally, there is a new form we ask all volunteers to complete, called the Volunteer Confidentially Form. If you are volunteering in any school, please complete this form and bring it to the office of that school. We will also make a copy of your driver's license and we will attach this copy to the form in our files.
Thank you for all that you do!
