We will be making fleece-tie blankets for children being treated at University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. Over the last few years, Highview students have donated more than 80 blankets to the Children's Hospital! What an impact! If you'd like to donate, we are in need of fabric scissors and lots of fleece (2 yard cuts). Please drop off at the Highview front office. If you have questions, contact Mrs. Swenson. Thank you!

    Highview’s Hawk’s Nest is looking for donations.  Students can receive “Gotcha Tickets” from staff for a multitude of great reasons… Being a good friend, being on time, doing their best, working hard in class, etc.  Students can “spend” these tickets in the school store called, The Hawk’s Nest. 

    We are asking for help stocking The Hawk’s Nest with these items that  students have requested – Dum Dum suckers, Orbit Gum (14 piece packs), Rice Krispy Treats (singles), chips (individual servings), popsockets, fidget cubes, fun-size candy (no peanuts please), Chex Mix (individual servings). 

    Donated items can be brought to the school office.  We thank you, in advance, for helping us to promote positive behavior in our students at Highview.  Hawk Pride!
