PARENT NOTE – August 18, 2020
“GO: Compelled By Love!”
Psalm 32:8

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
Welcome back to school! It is our privilege to support your family, as we see your child grow academically and develop a robust relationship with the Lord. This morning, a number of community members met at sunrise to cover our building, staff, and students in prayer. Furthermore, over the past week, each student has been specifically named and claimed in prayer. Yet again, I have been reminded of God’s faithfulness to Highland Christian School. He is so good.
Throughout the year, you will learn more about Highland Christian’s laser-focus on standards, commitment to collaboration, and relentless work towards high achievement. At HCS, we have very high expectations for students. With your ongoing support, communication, and work at home, we know that all of our students can and will learn the guaranteed and viable curriculum.
For the first quarter, I will take each week to explain a piece of Highland Christian’s approach to learning so you can see the WHY, HOW, and WHAT. Whether at home or at school, we are thoroughly looking forward to partnering with you, your family, and student(s).
May God continue to bless you during the 2020-2021 school year. It is a privilege to serve your family and the great community of Highland Christian School.

Mr. Kyle Weener – Principal
