    Our goal this year at Highlands Elementary Afterschool program is to provide a safe environment for the students we serve. We want our students to be enriched with daily activities and have the opportunity to have fun as well. We want to give our students a place where they feel comfortable and want to attend daily. We plan to have more family nights this year so our Parents can interact with our staff and get to see what the program has to offer throughout the school year. These family nights will consist of family friendly stations that showcase the type of enrichment activities the students are involved in during the program. Also we like to put on talent shows and performances from our awesomely talented students for families to watch and be entertained.
