“Run YOUR Race”
Hebrews 12:1

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK

Hebrews 12:1

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
Parents,
Do you remember the Ice-cream Social/Back to School Night last August?  Perhaps what you remember most is my epic fail at getting our students into their multi-age teams!  We did figure out how to do that better and have enjoyed those groups several times this year. On that night you received the Learning Targets for your Continue reading Parent Note – May 13, 2019

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
Parents,
Thanks for your support with ILEARN testing last week!  With the exception of a few kids who were too sick to be here, we had great attendance.  The students were really engaged and appeared to be doing their best – and that’s wonderful.  Today, we started 3rd Grade and next week we have a few Social Studies and Science tests.  Once Continue reading Parent Note – May 6, 2019

HCS Annual Society Meeting – May 6, 2019

Highland Christian School is a parent-governed school.  Each year we host a Society Meeting on the first Monday evening in May.   At this meeting, the acting Board and Administrative Team provides report on the State of the School.  It is here that we review and approve the annual budget and nominate our School Board.

Voting privileges are given to individuals who are professing believers, active members in good standing of a local church in the Christian Reformed or Reformed denominational family and are active in their financial support of HCS.

Privilege of the floor is given to any vested member of our community who is a professing believer, an active member in good standing within their local church and wishes to invest themselves in our School.

Prior year minutes, board nominees and reports are published in the Annual Society Meeting Agenda.

“Run YOUR Race”
Hebrews 12:1

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
I trust that you all had a great Easter weekend celebrating the resurrection of Christ.  Our Easter Chapel on Thursday was great and the students had a tangible reminder of what it means to “give your heart” to Jesus.  Proverbs 4:23 says that above all else we are to guard our hearts – I love that – above all else!  Why?  Because, as Continue reading Parent Note – April 22, 2019
