  • Mrs. Quantina Sides

    It is with great pride and excitement that I join Highland Gardens Elementary as your new Principal. 

    I look forward to partnering with you to ensure all children are celebrated and supported. 

    Together, we will ensure that we maintain our tradition of excellence and the community that makes 

    Highland Gardens such a special place.


  • Rules for athletic events

    Sporting events can and should be opportunities for fun and fellowship in a family-friendly environment. We have a responsibility to do everything we can to ensure that these events are safe for everyone attending. That is why we are setting forth some guidelines.

  • September 26-30 will be school-wide parent, student, and teacher conferences. Please look for a phone call from your scholar's teacher this week to set up the conference. These conferences will be held face-to-face, virtually, or via phone. If you do not hear from your scholar's teacher, don't hesitate to reach out to them. We would like to keep you in the know of your scholar's academic and behavioral progress. Report cards will come home the week of October 13th.  

    This is Hispanic Heritage Month- September 15- October 15. We look forward to learning more about our scholar's culture over the next month. By way of activities, speakers, readers, and programs that will engage in the opportunity to learn more.
