Great Gathering

It’s time to gather together again! 

The 2021 Great Gathering is moving up to November 5th to take full advantage of the amazing Braemar Clubhouse (inside and out) to make this year’s event as safe as possible. There will also be plenty of ways to support the school virtually by bidding on the silent auction or signing up for small gatherings!

We have the date and the place - now we need your help.

Please consider signing up to volunteer and donating a Small Gathering. Your generosity is truly what makes our gathering great!

Highlands Together - Join Today!

Highlands Together is a small confidential support group for the HL community. How it works: When the principal or social worker has a need to support a student or family (school supplies, winter gear, snack, etc.) they will reach out to the point person for Highlands Together and make the request. Then that person sends an email to the confidential distribution list requesting the items or assistance with the need and gives directions on how to drop them off in the office for the social worker, Addie Hakes.


It’s a fantastic way to give and support Highlands and it’s kids! If you would like to join the distribution list please send an email to with Highlands Together in the subject line.
