Holiday Hat Day is 12/17

On Tuesday, December 17, Highland Schools will hold a district wide fundraiser for the United Way of Medina County. The annual ”Holiday Hat Day” allows any student, teacher, bus driver, custodian, aide, secretary, etc. to donate $1 to wear his/her favorite holiday headgear (Santa hats, elf hats, scrooge hats, antlers and the like). Money will be collected at each building. The goal of the United Way of Medina County is to ensure that area children get a strong start in school, young adults have access to mental health services, and children do not go hungry. 

Since 2014 the United Way has:

  • Helped 7,000 students focus on learning by providing kindergarten readiness programs, academic support, and nutritional food.
  • Helped 17,000 youth by providing mental health access in schools. 

All proceeds collected from the Holiday Hat Day will benefit the United Way. Thank you!

Order Your Holiday STAR Award -- It's the Perfect Gift!

It's that time of year to honor your Highland STAR and make their day just a little brighter. The holidays are upon us again, and many of us are searching for that perfect gift for teachers or community members who have made an impact on our child's academic success. The Staff and Teacher Award Recognition (STAR) program, offered through The Highland Foundation, proudly honors a Highland community member of your choice for their outstanding achievements. Each recipient is presented with an award certificate and either a box of bonbons, or the Highland Diamond etched with the Highland Hornet and the year. A personal note from the donor can also be included with the STAR award. Just fill out the STAR Award form found online or in any school office, and The Highland Foundation will do the rest!

Each award presented requires a $10 minimum donation for a mini decorated box of bonbons, a $30 donation for a large decorated box of bonbons, or a $30 donation for the Highland Diamond hanging ornament. The deadline for submission is Thursday, December 12. Awards will be distributed before the holiday break on December 17.

There are two easy ways to place your order:
1. Pay online with a credit card at www.highlandfoundation.org
2. Mail your completed form with payment to The Highland Foundation, 3880 Ridge Rd., Medina, OH 44256. Please make checks payable to The Highland Foundation.
