Afterschool Enrichment: Clubs & Sports

Clubs, sports, and extracurricular enrichment are run by parents and volunteers. While each club has a staff designee or sponsor, it is parents that make the magic happen! We are grateful for our parents and encourage parents to dedicate their time, talent, and interests to our children. 

You, too, can start a club at Highland!  If you are interested in bringing an activity or organization to Highland’s afterschool offerings, please reach out to  Ms. Elizabeth or complete our Club Request Form. Please reach out to Club Leaders or check out the HCS Google Calendar for most recent events and schedule.
