The PTA offers many opportunities to become involved at Highland School.  Attending or volunteering at a PTA sponsored event is a great way to meet fellow parents, get to know teachers and staff, and find out more about Highland School.  The PTA also coordinates several fundraisers throughout the year.  These efforts have enabled the PTA to provide financial contributions for the modernization project of the Library Media Center, purchase Birthday Books for each student, ukuleles for the music room, playground equipment including the Gaga Pit, “rainy day” games for classrooms, laptops, pedometers, the school mural, the flat screen television near the main office, a new projector for the multipurpose room and many other enhancements throughout the school.
