    • 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.
