Granger Elementary School welcomed Elizabeth (Lizz) Maxwell, director of GiGi’s Playhouse Cleveland, on December 7, as part of the school's “Keys to Success” initiative. GiGi’s Playhouse is a one-of-a-kind achievement center for individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community. GiGi’s Playhouse offers more than 30 therapeutic and educational programs that advance literacy, math skills, motor skills and more; all of which are free of charge. Ms. Maxwell spoke to students in grades K-5 about recognizing and celebrating differences, and expanded upon the Generation G Campaign: Be Accepting. Be Generous. Be Kind. More information can be found at: https://gigisplayhouse.org/ This program was made possible through the generous support of The Highland Foundation.
Sharon Elementary 3rd grader Anthony D'Amico served as “Principal for A Day” on November 30 and learned the ropes from Mrs. Kathryn Kowza, Sharon Principal. He had several duties to take care of throughout the day including helping with morning announcements, inspecting the building, eating lunch with the principal, and of course, having his picture taken with the principal! This day was one of the many items auctioned off during the 14th Annual Highland Foundation Dinner & Benefit Auction held on November 10. Each elementary school participated in the auction. Anthony is the son of Tony and Amy D'Amico of Montville Township.

The holidays are upon us again, and many of us are searching for that perfect gift for teachers or community members who have made an impact on our child’s academic success. The Staff and Teacher Award Recognition (STAR) program, offered through The Highland Foundation, proudly honors a Highland community member of your choice for their outstanding achievements. Each recipient is presented with an award certificate and either a box of bonbons, or the Highland Diamond etched with the Highland Hornet and the year. A personal note from the donor can also be included with the STAR award. Just fill out the STAR Award form found online or in any school office, and The Highland Foundation will do the rest!
