Parents are an integral part of the home-school partnership. Fostering and growing the relationship requires effective communication, parent-to-parent interaction, and volunteerism.

The purpose of the Parent Auxiliary is to support the mission of Highlands School as determined by the Board, help the families at various grade levels to come to know each other and to join in effectively promoting the school causes, support the school with its needs and to promote the welfare of the school through fund drives and other projects, help improve the school through mutual efforts of the parents, faculty, Board and Administration, and provide opportunity to enhance communication between the school and its families. Each year, annual officers and grade level parent representatives facilitate these activities.


Highlands Pulse is the central login point for all official school communication and items related to your business with the school. Parents should log in frequently to check for correspondence, complete forms, visit teacher websites, and access directory/contact resources.
