Raise the Curtain Campaign

"Raise the Curtain Campaign"

Recent News: 
   Through the great support of the community, the PTA, MPPEF, PAPS, the district, and Bergen County Special Services, we have raised enough money to purchase Acoustic Panels! Panels and baffles have been installed in the gym and will greatly improve the experience that everyone has in the space, regardless of the activity. This also means we have completed the final purchase of the Campaign! Ms. Angulo-Pizzaro and Mr. Peters are very grateful for all of the support your have given us over the past several years, THANK YOU!

Upcoming Events:
  December 12 - Highland School Winter Concert - The first performance in the Gym showcasing the new Acoustic Panels!
