    HIGHVIEW CONSTRUCTION

    Beginning this past Monday, June 11, Highview Middle School was closed for summer due to construction of our new front parking lot and main office.  The Highview Office will be temporarily housed at Mounds View High School for the summer.  Phone numbers will remain the same.  Hawk Pride!

     


    MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THESE 2018-2019 EVENTS

    Mark your calendars now for Highview Hawk Pride Welcome Back Day on Wednesday, August 22 from 2:00 to 7:00 PM.  Teachers will be here from 5:00-7:00 PM.  Students will get their school photos taken; get their schedule and their locker assignment and more!   Watch for a mailing to come to your house via U.S. Mail this summer with more information. 

    Parent Information Night will be on Thursday, September 13, 2018 from 6:00-8:00 PM.  The purpose of Parent Information Night is for parents to have the opportunity to experience their child’s daily routine at Highview as they meet their child’s teachers and move from class to class.  Parents will experience a shortened version of a typical school day.  In each class, parents will receive an overview of the course, find out how grades are determined, learn what assignments will be like and hear how the teacher feels parents can best help their students be successful.  We also see this evening as an opportunity for parents to meet the principal, associate principal and their child’s dean. 

    Parent Teacher Communication Hours will be from 4-7:00 PM on the dates below (unless otherwise noted).
