In just one week, our 3rd – 8th graders will begin to participate in state testing. This past week, the Department of Education announced that Highland Christian received a Grade A for the 2019-2020 school year. This is something to celebrate!

This past Thursday, a number of 7th and 8th graders led an all-school chapel highlighting Black History Month and See a Need – Fill a Need.  In this chapel, we were able to celebrate our diversity and the contributions of those who have gone before us. The student leaders shared with us the world-changing work of many African American leaders in the work-place, classroom, and in politics. We Continue reading Parent Note – March 2, 2020

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
In last week’s Blue Note, I was able to revisit the importance of standards-based grading to our teachers, students, and parents. Standards-based grading (SBG) is making a substantial educational impact for students from kindergarten to 8th grade, both in our school and schools throughout the nation.

As you may recall, at our February Late Start, the staff was in deep discussion about self-assessment and how our students can engage in critical and action based self-reflection. Just as we ask our students to self-assess, our teachers exercise this same reflective practice. Continue reading Parent Note – February 18, 2020
