Serving our Children and the Community
August 2015

We hope everyone has had a wonderful summer! It is hard to believe that the kids are heading back to school, but we are excited to welcome them. We have already begun planning some great "end-of-summer" and fall events (see below) and we will be communicating more about PTO events as we set dates.
We will be finalizing our PTO committees over the next couple of weeks, so if you would like to volunteer, please send us an email. We'd love to have you, and we still have a few holes to fill.
We are happy to report that we had a successful "Kindergarten Playdate" on August 19 to welcome our new kindergarten students to High Plain. Big thanks to Anita Goff for planning the event. On August 26 we hosted our "New Family Orientation" and welcomed all of the students and families new to High Plain. We are also looking forward to welcoming back HPE's wonderful teachers on September 1 by providing a breakfast to the staff. Thank you to Christine Lightburn and Dawn Ferguson for coordinating this event. A special thank you, also, to Rachel Hemman for coordinating our "first day balloons" so the younger students can easily find their teachers.
If you no longer have a student at HPE, it would be very helpful to us if you could please "unsubscribe" to this message below. While we do hate to see you go, it helps us to decrease costs and keep our contact list up-to-date. Thank you.
We look forward to seeing you all at an upcoming PTO event.
Enjoy your last few days of summer!
