This weekend, my son, Ezra, and I swung by school to take care of a couple small tasks and give mom a break at home. While walking near the playground we were able to stop at the Legacy Prayer Plaza for a few minutes. Showcasing a beautiful area for prayer and the recognition of those who have paved the way for Christian Continue reading Parent Note – October 18, 2021

The past few days have brought a flurry of exciting events and happenings with the school community, staff, and students.

Community: What a blessing it was to have hundreds of grandparents at school on Friday. As one grandparent entered, he shared that the line of excited grandparents made it to Lincoln Street! That’s certainly a lot of grandparents that love their Continue reading Parent Note – October 11, 2021

Over the past few weeks, you have learned about Rick DuFour’s 4 Questions. These questions guide instruction at Highland Christian and the skills we seek to instill with our students. As the 4th and final question, our collaborative teams ask, “What do we do if students have learned the material before it has been taught?” To Continue reading Parent Note – September 27, 2021

It’s not the beginning of fall without a ton of football! Whether you’re rooting for the Bears, Colts, Purdue, or IU – it was a great weekend. As a life-long Florida fan, I watched with great hope as the Gators climbed out of a 21-3 hole only to come up two points short Continue reading Parent Note – September 20, 2021

After a football-filled weekend, we’re ready for another great week at school!

Last week, I introduced the first question of PLC – “What do we want students to learn?” This week, we will focus on the second question – “How do we know students have learned it?” At HCS, teachers use formative and summative assessments to track student progress Continue reading Parent Note – September 13, 2021

This certainly has been a year for the books! As we put a close on the 2020-2021 school year, I want to thank our wonderful community for the collaborative and flexible teamwork it has taken to make this year a great success.
