Kona Ice is coming!

posted May 12, 2015, 2:45 PM by David Coulon

The food drive for Kona Ice is on again. Kona Ice will visit HGF on the 3rd of June.  This year they have promised to have two trucks serving, so it should go more smoothly for us.  

 More Information will be sent home with the kiddos for an upgrade on the product they buy that day. Last year HGF received a total of $1118.08 for bringing in the most food of all elementary schools in Manchester so we received 75% of our sales. I know we can do this again. The food donations go to the NH Food Bank. Let's do it again, sooooooo 
"Bring some food tomorrow!"  Collection of food will begin on May 13, 2015.

Memorial Day Pictures

posted May 6, 2015, 4:51 AM by David Coulon

Dear Parents,

Mr. Lamy and I will be collaborating again on a slide show presentation to coincide with a song the students will be singing for our Memorial Day Celebration.  We would like to include pictures of family members of our Highland students that have served or are presently serving in the military.  Please do not submit pictures of second cousins, friends, acquaintances, etc.  We will not accept these as the song allows us only enough time to include immediate family members.  You may send a picture of this family member, in military attire, to  in a jpg. format.  The picture should be no bigger than 500K in size.  Pictures that are too large quickly take up a lot of space on our server and limit the number of e-mails we can receive.  Please include the person’s name, relationship to student and military branch with the picture.  Also, please limit the number of pictures you send to two per child.  Hard copy pictures may be brought in an envelope with the proper information on it and will be scanned at school- and returned to student. 

Pictures must be submitted by Monday, May 11th as the Memorial Day program is            Friday, May 22nd at 9:00 am and Mr. Lamy and I need sufficient time to put this together.

Boys and girls that are current members of the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts are encouraged to wear their uniforms for the Memorial Day Celebration.  All other students are encouraged to wear red, white and blue for this special day.

Parents and children of appropriate age are invited to attend this respectful ceremony.

Please contact me at  if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,                                                  

Mrs. Schwalbe
