In 3rd grade we are refreshing our call number skills to help us become more independent library patrons! Each team has a code to crack in order to find the answer to their joke! Teamwork truly IS the dreamwork!
This week in 7th Grade Science, our young scientists learned how magnetism works and how we utilize it in many everyday applications. We ended our week with an engaging lab that allowed students to witness and analyze the invisible magnetic fields by using iron shavings.
It recently came to our attention that Highlands Middle School students were using a language learning website (Duolingo) that is not fully compliant with the requirements of the Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA). To our knowledge, the only student data provided to Duolingo was Google Authentication information based on their school-provided email address. At this time, there is no evidence to suggest that this data has been misused or distributed. We are currently looking into whether there is a way to use Duolingo and be in full compliance with SOPPA. While we are looking into this matter, this website has been blocked from use on D106 devices.
Thank you to our chorus members and show choir members for their great performances yesterday during our Fall Choral Concert. The students put on a terrific show both during the school day and last night for friends and family. A special thank you to Mrs. Jost for all of her work in helping our students prepare for the concert. And thank you to Mrs. Phillips for her wonderful accompaniment on the piano. The concert was an excellent way to wrap up our 1st Trimester.
Sibling support opportunities for families with children with disabilities
Parent/Educator Presentation & Sibshops for Highlands Students
Siblings often have the longest relationship of their lives with their brother or sister. If you have a child with disabilities and a typically developing child, you may wonder about your typically developing child’s experience as a sibling. Siblings are in a unique position to advocate with their brothers and sisters with disabilities lifelong, so information and support at an early age is important. Please join us for a presentation about siblings of children with disabilities with Amy Halm, Associate Director of the Sibling Leadership Network. Amy will discuss the needs, concerns, and opportunities that are frequently experienced by siblings of people with disabilities, and how Sibshops and other practical strategies can support them.
This session is free and parents are encouraged to join us to learn, listen, and ask questions. Teachers and school staff are also welcome to attend. Please see the attached flyer to register for the presentation on November 30, 2022 and/or to register your student(s) for a Sibshop!
