BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
It is almost time for our school to make another Box Top submission.  We need to send in our collected Box Tops before March because many of them will expire in that month.  Please look around and send in any Box Tops you have at home (or wherever you may find them).  Remember that all Box Tops money collected will be used to purchase new library books.  Please help us to continue to build an amazing library collection for all of our kids to enjoy!

OUR FAVORITE BOOKS
February is I Love to Read month and a time to celebrate all the fabulous readers we have at Highwood School.  As part of the celebration during February, there will be an I Love to Read dress-up day every Wednesday.  Students in grades Pre-K-12 are encouraged to participate in the dress-up days.  Because Dr. Seuss is a childhood favorite of so many staff and students, the dress-up days this year coordinate with Dr. Seuss books.  The dress-up day schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, February 20      Fox In Socks (Wear fun or crazy socks.)
Wednesday, February 27    Oh, The Places You’ll Go (Wear a college or school jersey/t-shirt or a t-shirt from a place you’ve visited.)

HEART READING
In addition to I Love to Read dress-up days, high school and middle school students will partner with elementary students twice during the third quarter to read together for H.E.A.R.T. Reading.... Hold Everything And Read Together.  Stop by and check out our final  H.E.A.R.T. Reading on Wednesday, February 27, at 2:30.

BIKES FOR BOOKS
The Masonic Lodge in Fort Benton is once again sponsoring the Bikes for Books reading incentive during the third nine weeks of school.  Elementary students increase their chances of winning a bike with every book they read during the third quarter.  All students who meet their four and a half week reading goals will be included in a pizza party at mid-term.  We thank the Masonic Lodge for their generous support of our Highwood students.

SHOWDOWN SKI DAY
Grades K-7 will be participating in their P.E./Ski day to Showdown Ski Hill on Wednesday, February 20. The bus will be leaving the school at 7:00 A.M. Students need to dress appropriately for skiing, including a warm jacket, snow pants, hat, and gloves. In addition, they need to bring a sack lunch or money to purchase lunch at the ski hill. The bus will return to the school at 4:30 P.M.

RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE:  DONATE AND WIN!
The Highwood High School Student Council is sponsoring an American Red Cross Blood Drive on the afternoon and evening of Tuesday, March 19, 2019.  The blood drive begins at 2:30 P.M. and ends at 7:30 P.M.  Please call the school office to reserve a time slot that works with your schedule.  The Student Council hopes to bring in more donors than ever this year by offering an incentive.  Those who donate blood will have their names entered in a drawing for a gift certificate for two steak dinners at Elmo’s Highwood Bar.  Help us help others with the generous gift of your blood!

SHOP WISH LIST
Highwood School has not offered a shop class for many years.  As a result, it is going to take time to stock the shop with all the necessary tools.  Mr. Zuhoski is doing an outstanding job building a program from the ground up.  Mrs. Suberg asked him to put together a wish list of welding supplies to bring the shop up to speed.  Before the school makes a lot of purchases, we thought we would see if anyone in the community has items on the list
they would donate to the shop program.  Please contact the school if you have an item you wish to donate.  Thank you! Needed items include: oxygen/acetylene welding kits, adjustable welding tables, leather welding gloves, welding brush set 2 pk., welding chipping hammers, gas welding carts, and a set of 52 welding bricks.
