P.E. Star of the Month

Highland School's Physical Education Department has created a new program called the P.E. Star of the Month. A certificate is presented to one student per grade level each month who exhibited exceptional behavior, effort, participation, and sportsmanship. We are excited about our new tradition of honoring students who work really hard every single time they step foot in the gym. We are proud of these students and feel they deserve to be recognized.

Here are the students recognized for the month of January:​

3rd: Neil Dhalwani

4th: Andrea Cruz & Olivia Schaefer

5th: Olivia Dell'Aglio

6th: Jorge Hernandez
