New Playground Equipment - Cheque Drive
During HPAC's Oct 3rd budget meeting, Highlands parents voted to approve a budget of up to $55,000 to purchase a new piece of playground equipment for the school. Assuming we meet our fundraising goals, the equipment would be installed this school year near the basketball courts and is meant to add an additional active play option that both primary and intermediate kids will be able to enjoy.
Thank you to everyone who donated! We reached our fundraising goal of $20,000!
