School start Update

Hello Highland Arts families, 

We are excited to welcome our Hurricanes for the 2020-21 school year. As a reminder, we start school on August 4, with remote learning for all students. 

Your child will need to have access to a laptop and internet to do their learning. Highland Arts will be distributing laptops to students and families who need or want to borrow one on Monday, July 27th and Tuesday,  July 28th from 7:00 AM - 11:00AM.  

We will be handing out the laptops in a drive-thru format. You must remain in your vehicle at all times. Parents or legal guardians and students must be there in person to pick up their laptops. At pickup, employees will be asking families if they have reliable internet access and will have flyers with information about purchasing low-cost internet. Along with their laptop, students will be given instructions for logging on to their laptop, connect their laptop to WiFi and how to enroll in the Device Protection Plan. Additionally, you will receive instructions for logging in to Canvas, our district learning management system, which is where students will access online learning materials. 

As soon as it is safe for our students and staff to return to campus, families may choose to transition to modified in-person and ultimately in-person learning. We will share more information when it becomes available.

We miss all of our Hurricanes and we can’t wait to see you. Stay safe and healthy, and enjoy your summer. 

Estimadas familias de Highland Arts, 

Estamos emocionados de dar la bienvenida a nuestro/as Hurricanes para el año escolar 2020-21. Como recordatorio, comenzaremos clases el 4 de agosto, con aprendizaje remoto para todos los estudiantes. 

Su hijo necesitará tener acceso a una computadora portátil e internet para aprender. Highland Arts distribuirá computadoras portátiles a los estudiantes y las familias que necesiten o quieran pedir una prestada el 27 y 28 de Julio de 7 a 11 de la mañana .

Distribuiremos las computadoras portátiles a manera de “drive-thru”. Debe permanecer en su vehículo en todo momento. Los padres o tutores legales y los estudiantes deben estar allí en persona para recoger sus computadoras portátiles. Los empleados del distrito preguntarán a las familias si tienen acceso confiable a Internet y tendrán volantes con información sobre cómo comprar internet de bajo costo. Junto con su computadora portátil, los estudiantes recibirán instrucciones para iniciar sesión en su computadora, conectar su computadora a WiFi y cómo inscribirse en el Plan de Protección del Dispositivo. Además, usted recibirá instrucciones para iniciar sesión en Canvas, nuestro sistema de administración de aprendizaje del distrito, que es donde los estudiantes accederán a los materiales de aprendizaje en línea.

Tan pronto como sea seguro para nuestros estudiantes y el personal regresar al campus, las familias podrán optar por la transición al aprendizaje presencial modificado y, en última instancia, presencial. Compartiremos más información cuando esté disponible.

Echamos de menos a todas/os nuestras/os Hurricanes y no podemos esperar a verlos. Manténgase seguro y saludable, y disfrute su verano.

Highland Arts Elementary Goes Beyond the Basics
An Arts Integration school incorporating aesthetic education

Aesthetic Education Perspective

Highland staff emphasize an aesthetic education approach to complement our STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). This allows us to round out our program and create a STEAM environment (A being Arts).

During our Lincoln Center Education Training beginning in July of 2014 and continuing through 2017, teachers developed and implemented arts integration lessons tied directly to English Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, and Science Standards.

This continues as we work with Kennedy Center for the Arts. 

Arizona State University has provided Highland with a resident teaching artist.

We have fostered a close relationship with the Mesa Arts Center, including frequent music education programs by renowned cellist Zuill Bailey.
