  • All Pro Dads – Friday, August 12th (HHMS Cafe’)

Now is the time to RSVP for this Friday’s All Pro Dads Day at Highland Hills Middle School. Click the link below to register https://allprodadchapters.com/chapters/10544

How many of us can truly appreciate and undestand the impact this immediate gratification, social media world, has had on our kids? Most of us (if not all of us) did not have i-phones, social media, endless gaming options, and streaming networks to continuously grab our attention. On Friday, we’ll talk about how to put “first things first” for our kids, and perhaps, you might learn something as well. I look forward to seeing everyone on Friday at 7:40 am at the HHMS Cafeteria, and feel free to reach out to me with any questions. Rob @ 502-439-1068

 

  • Campus Life for 5-8th grades will begin Wednesday, August 17 and meet every Wednesday after school until 5:00pm in the cafeteria. Campus Life is a positive place where students can have fun with friends, talk about relevant issues, and be heard without judgment. It’s a place where you will be challenged to make good decisions and lead in a positive way here at HHMS.  See Kevin Becht with any questions @ kbecht@yfc.net
