Auditions for Peter Pan Jr.
Auditions are open to all HMS students. Each grade level and gender has different audition days, so be sure to read the below schedule carefully. Auditions are in the choir room after school, from about 2:30-4:30 p.m. Students who are in the first groups to audition will be done sooner. Students should prepare a high energy song to show off their personalities, or voice students can use something from their repertoire to show off their range. Suggested songs are anything Disney, Christmas carols, or something from Peter Pan. Students will also read from a script and go through a short dance audition, so dress comfortably and be ready to have fun! Auditions open to all HMS students.

Congratulations to six Highland Middle School students who performed in a large District 6 OMEA Honors Choir/Band event at the College of Wooster on November 21.

Drop-Off / Pick-Up Procedure
All drivers must drop-off or pick-up students in the back (west) of the building between 6:50–7:25 a.m. and 2–2:45 p.m. This is to ensure everyone's safety. Cars are to use the entrance from Wilbur Road only. Buses use the entrance on Rt. 94. We recognize that the morning can be congested. Dropping off by 7 a.m. will help to alleviate that congestion. The building is open and students can go to the gym to sit or to cafeteria and eat. Driver cooperation is appreciated.
