APRIL IS THE MONTH OF THE MILITARY CHILD!  ATTENTION MILITARY FAMILIES- as you know, April is the month of the Military Child.  Highland Ranch would like to recognize all the military children that attend our school at Friday Flag on April 25th.  If you are in the Military and are able to get a color guard together to lead the pledge that would be wonderful!!   (contact Lisa Bromley at bromleylnj@gmail.com if that is the case)  We would love for our Military members to come in uniform and if we can't get a color guard, lead the pledge.    We will have the military students stand up and be recognized as well.  ALL STUDENTS…wear you military gear or come all American red, white and blue to support all the kids of military families on Friday, April 25th!

DEADLINE TODAY!  Today (Friday, April 18th) is the final deadline to buy auction tickets.  Please visit the Foundation website  to purchase tickets.  They are $45 each. Don't miss the fun!

The auction will be held on Saturday, May 3rd from 6:00-10:00 PM in the back garden at the Hacienda de Vega, a wonderful restaurant just one exit north of the mall.  There will be a live Flamenco performance, yummy tray-passed food, amazing silent and live auction items, and of course, a great night out with your fellow Highland Ranch parents and teachers.  Your kids can also have a fun time the evening of the auction; Manna's Martial Arts is offering a Parent's Night Out just for us.  It's $30 a child (they must be at least 5 years old). There will be jumpies, laser tag, pizza & games. 

The Foundation is raising money so that all of our students can again have a science and P.E. teacher next year.  Your support is vital and greatly appreciated. 

There are many, many items that will be up for auction, including a vacation in Maui, brewery tours and tastings, dinner at the CMR firehouse, Disneyland tickets, a parking space, front row seats at the 5th grade promotion, and much, much more.  Our teachers have each donated a fun experience as well.  New this year is a class art project, unique to each classroom. If you know you can not make it to the event, you may submit a proxy bid (your maximum bid) for the teacher experience or the class art project; just email proxy@highlandrancheducationalfoundation.org.

We look forward to seeing you May 3rd. Please feel free to contact us with any questions!

NEXT MEETING: The next Foundation meeting will be this Monday, April 21st at 7:00 PM in the school library. We encourage all Highland Ranch parents and teachers to attend. We will be discussing our new officers and board for the next school year.
