Reflections Art Program
Hightower PTA is proud to announce that the 2020-2021 National PTA Reflections theme is
"I Matter Because"
Reflections is a national PTA-sponsored art program that provides an opportunity for your child to apply the year's theme to a work of art in six different categories. Students will be recognized for their work at Hightower and potentially be recognized at the district and even state levels.
Reflections deadline is early November (TBD)!

Thank A Teacher--All September!
Thank You, Hightower Teachers and Staff!
We know our Hightower teachers and staff are working extra hours these days teaching our children, creating lesson plans, navigating new technology, and updating their classrooms with new safety measures.
To show our support, Hightower PTA is kicking off our “Thank a Teacher” program to make sure that our teachers and staff know how much they are appreciated. Could you take a moment to email your child’s teacher some words of encouragement? A short email could go a long way in showing our teachers and staff how much we value them. Email your child’s current teacher, past teacher, Specials teacher, counselor, librarian, or school nurse today and let them know that you appreciate them!
Questions? Please contact Jennifer Tapp, VP1-Membership, at email@example.com.

Yearbook Photos Needed
Tigers, Help Us Fill the Yearbook Pages!
The first few weeks of school may be a bit different this year, but we still want to capture those memories in the 2020-2021 Hightower Yearbook. Since we will not be on-campus to take pictures, we need your help. Please send your “First Few Weeks of School” photos to include in the yearbook. As a reminder - a good yearbook photo is sharp, clean, clear and features only Hightower students or staff.
Please submit your photos for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- It is extra helpful if you include the grade-level(s) in your photo file name or email.
- Siblings photographed together or separate are okay (Hightower students only, please).
Questions? Contact Becca Berry-Cacioppo, Yearbook Chair, at Yearbook@HightowerPTA.org.

Carpool Safety Reminders
Click here to view the full list of carpool reminders and city/state laws.
Good reminders for drivers:
- Slow down in all school zones! Our school zones operate before school from 7:00-8:00 am and after school from 2:30-3:15 pm. The speed limit in all active school zones is always 20 MPH.
- Do not use your cell phone in any Carpool Line or while driving. It's illegal!
- Watch out for the crosswalks. Always stop when the crossing guard is in the street holding up the Stop sign. Do not enter the street until the crossing guard has returned to the sidewalk.
- Allow extra time to arrive early! The building opens to students at 7:30 am.
Have patience and be kind to our fellow Hightower families!
