Digital Literacy with Common Sense Media. Helping your children stay safe online can be a difficult task. Common Sense Media has provided tips for parents to help you monitor your child's online activity and stay safe. The Highland Media specialist and counselors also are giving your children lessons to help prepare them for a digital life. Please follow the link to check out some parent resources.

 

Highland has a Little Library! It is located along the sidewalk near the front of the school and you may enjoy books 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This library is free, but when you borrow books please either return them or donate one in exchange so that everyone may enjoy the books. If you have books to donate, please bring them to the Main Office.  

 

 Black-eyed Susan nominees for 2018-19. Each year, the Maryland Association of School Librarians nominates children's picture books, chapter books and graphic novels for the state book award. Highland students can help choose the winner by reading the books and voting for their favorites. Visit the Black-eyed Susan display in the Media Center to check them out!
