From Mr. Anderson

  • Principal Mark Anderson Meet Mr. Anderson

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 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:

    Alyssa Smith - 2nd Grade
    Michelle Black – Science
    Jacob Epel - K-6 Counselor
    Brandee Knierim - 7/8 Renaissance Science
    Scott Myers – Spanish
    Gayatri Naik - Special Education Teacher
    Sara Palmani - Special Education Teacher
    Danilo Razon - Maintenance Staff
    Erika Bullard - Cafeteria Staff/Crossing Guard
    Renee White - Cafeteria Staff
    Allens Cuevas - Crossing Guard/Monitor
    Tricia Thompson – Monitor
    Lenona Starr - Paraprofessional

    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.
