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.

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!
