-From the Principal, Mark Anderson…Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I know that this year will be especially good for the students at Highland Lakes. The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time. Kindergarten students and their parents are anxious about the new adventure that they are about to begin, and returning students are wondering about what changes the new school year will bring for them. Teachers are planning exciting lessons for their students and are looking forward to helping your child succeed. We are working very hard to make certain that our students are developing strong academic, social, and emotional skills.
There is a new energy this year that seems to be contagious. Along with the new energy, we have also added the following staff members to the Highland Lakes School family:
Liz Wolcott - Attendance Clerk
Alex Stone - Maintenance Staff
Jenny Stilgenbauer - 2nd Grade
Jessica Heeb - 5th Grade
Barbara Asaro -RTI
Cheryse Blake - ELL Specialist
Calvin Erickson - MS Math|
Corinne Gettys - MS Art
Forrest McCollum - Gifted Specialist
Brigette McKee - MS P.E.
Ian Miller - MS Language Arts
Kylie Reynolds - Special Education
Caitlyn Roberts - Special Education
Linda Slavick - 7th Grade Math

Each teacher brings their own energy and expertise to our campus and I truly believe they are all excellent additions to our staff. The new teachers in partnership with our returning staff will continue to offer your children the high quality of academics you have grown to expect from the HL’s educational community.
