‘13 Messages from Milo’
Christopher Milo, an internationally recognized concert pianist, performer and motivational speaker, visited Highland Middle School this Fall and talked about his “13 Messages,” which center around inspiring leadership, acceptance, resiliency and positive life choices. Milo has an extremely positive attitude ~ and it's contagious upon talking with him! Students were engaged in his stories and his message and asked lots of interesting questions. Milo also presented an all-school assembly on October 8 and offered a free parent and community program later that evening. Milo's visit is generously sponsored by The Highland Foundation.
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.
