Since our inception, Highland has been a place that tries to level the playing field and make sure that all our families have access to a well-round educational experience. At Highland, our motto has always been “All of us or none of us!” We strive to ensure that every opportunity that we offer is available and accessible to all students. This means stretching our dollars through developing partnerships and leveraging volunteers. It also requires raising additional funds above and beyond our state funding.
That’s where the Highland Annual Fund comes in. For the 2016-2017 school year, the gap is $458 per student. The Annual Fund allows us to be a school that celebrates and nurtures the whole child with initiatives such as:
- Natural Grounds Redevelopment Project: The transforming of our asphalt school yard to a green space where our students interact and fall in love with nature each day.
- Camp HCS: Our annual camping trip and the culmination of year-round environmental education program. Kindergarteners to middle school students use their skills and knowledge in a new environment. With the sun on their faces, our student shine.
- The Global Citizen Initiative: From the all school celebrations of different cultures to travel opportunities, this initiative gives students the opportunity to experience the world beyond Milwaukee.
- S.T.E.A.M. for All: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math! These are the tools students need to be innovators thinkers of our future. From afterschool robotics and coding to artists in residence integrating art and music into the school day, students have the opportunity to learn how to problem-solve.
Express to the whole community that you support every single student’s journeys towards cultivating their leadership skills, their talents, their knowledge of the world and their sense of caring for all living things. Give a donation today!
