• Club Overview 2016-2017

    The Highland Elementary staff is very excited to share information regarding the many extracurricular activities we offer our students.  The various clubs and teams are an opportunity for students to engage in their areas of interest as well as make new friends!  We hope that all who are interested will have the chance to participate in at least one of our teams or clubs. In order to ensure that every Highland student has the opportunity to experience membership in an extracurricular activity, we ask that students participate in no more than two concurrent clubs. Since membership requires time and commitment from students, they will have to make choices about which clubs or teams they would like to join.  We hope that this guide will give you a yearlong overview of activities that we offer and help you and your child make an informed decision before signing up for a club or team.  More detailed information and/or interest letters will be distributed as time nears for the particular club or team to begin.

     

    If new club opportunities arise during the school year, students will be informed through the Morning News Show.
