Academy of Arts at Bella Vista

January 2017

Dear Highland Parents,

Wow! This second semester will be busy as we continue to prepare our students for the variety of assessments that come during this time. Please continue to encourage your children to work hard and do their best.

We have our January Parent Advisory Committee meeting on January 26th at 3:20 in the Highland Library. We also have our Character Assembly January 27th at 2:00 in the Highland Gym.

For safety purposes, when dropping off or picking up children before and after school, please do not block parked cars by stopping behind them.

Handicap parking is reserved for individuals with a disability, so we ask that when parking in the handicap parking areas please display your handicap sign from your mirror.

Thank you so much for all you do!

Brenda Benfield
