Highland holds Staff Painting Night By Jessica Williams, The Times-News 4/16/19 Reprinted with permission.
Highland Elementary School’s Highland Hospitality recently sponsored a staff paint night with Burlington’s Painted Grape paint and craft studio. Teachers and staff members learned how to paint a canvas to look like wood, and added personal touches like the year they began teaching or information about their families. They snacked on fruits, veggies and trail mix and drank grape juice (a substitute for wine, which is typically served at Sip n’ Paint nights). Highland Hospitality is working to build relationships between its staff members outside of school, standards and assessments.
