Principal’s Message

We are well into our third grading period at Highland City Elementary. We continue to be impressed by all we are seeing in our classrooms. Our third, fourth and fifth grade students will begin their state tests this month. Fourth and fifth graders will take the writing test  at the end of the month. This score is used as part of the English Language Arts score, along with their reading score. In March and April, third, fourth and fifth graders will take the reading, math and science assessments, as assigned. More information about specific testing dates will be coming home with your student. You will also have the opportunity to practice for the computer-based tests at home. Watch for information to come home with directions. As always, we enjoy celebrating our students’ success through our Student of the Month lunches and our quarterly classroom award ceremonies. Be sure to congratulate your student for a job well done! Please be sure to “like” us on Facebook and join our Remind text group to receive all school updates!
