Academy of Arts at Bella Vista

May 2016

Dear Highland Parents,

May is here and a lot of activities are going on at Highland.

Thank you for supporting us in PARCC testing! Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students did a great job!

A big thank you to the PAC and parents for putting together the Teacher Appreciation lunch on May 5th. The Teachers really loved it.

We would like to show how much we appreciate our parents, so on May 11th from 7:30 -8:30 we will be having a “come and go” breakfast in our cafeteria for our parents, so stop by and pick up a quick breakfast snack.

Also, remember our doors are open from 7:30 - 4:00. There is NO adult supervision before 7:30 each morning so please do not drop your children off before this time.

Thank you so much for all you do!

Brenda Benfield
