Message from the Principal

Welcome to Highlands Elementary School!

I am very delighted and honored to be the new principal of Highlands Elementary School. I, along with the Highlands staff, am looking forward to a great school year and the opportunity to help our students learn, grow and reach their full potential.

Our District 106 vision is to ensure that we are creating an environment where all students will learn to think critically and be effective communicators, collaborators and problem solvers, with a focus on creating a successful future for all. We are fortunate to have an amazing group of teachers, specialists, and support staff who are student centered and are able to help us achieve this vision. To realize our vision, we have created challenging and meaningful instructional programming that is focused on student growth in all areas of learning, including language and communication, mathematics, science, history, the arts, technology, physical fitness and social-emotional health. We are dedicated to providing an environment that is safe, nurturing and responsive to the needs of the whole child.

We are very fortunate to have an incredibly strong parent community that is focused on bringing a variety of engaging opportunities and experiences to all students. Both our Parent Teacher Council and our District 106 Educational Foundation dedicate great resources and support to our students and families. I’m excited to work with both our PTC and the Educational Foundation to continue the tradition of creating an engaging and well-rounded learning environment for every student. If you are not currently a member of our PTC or the Educational Foundation, please consider joining these great organizations.

It is our goal to create a welcoming environment for all of our Highlands families. Please feel free to stop in or give us a call should you have any questions about the school, upcoming events, programming, curriculum or your student’s needs. Also, don’t forget to visit our school website, our Schoology site, Facebook and Twitter pages for regular announcements, events and updates on what is happening at the Highlands.

We are very excited for all that this new school year will bring and we look forward to working with you to create the best learning experience for all of our students.

Sincerely,

Ms. Laura Magruder
Principal
