At Highland we can be in Orchestra when we get in 4th grade. Orchestra teaches a lot about instruments. I play the violin. Our teacher, Ms. Ellis helps us if we mess up . We learn from our mistakes and give ourselves lots of time to try again. Ms. Ellis is very kind.

Highland has great teachers. Mrs. Griffin is our teacher. She is one of the coolest teachers I know. I say this because she gives us lots of free time and tons of group time to work with each other. We work on teamwork in her class and I like that.

This year I am in Art Club. Art club shows me how creative I can be. It makes you feel really creative. We are working on a design to build a pencil holder. We also built sculptures out of tin foil. Mrs. Theilen is super nice and I would know because I have been in her class before.

If you ask me, the people in this school are very kind. Not ever in my life have I ever seen anyone get bullied before. Everyone here is super kind and so I feel so safe. I am really lucky to go to this school.
