This fall, Highcrest students participated in engaging and inspiring PTO Ignite-funded programs.

On Dec. 4- 6, the Highcrest Scholastic Book Fair will give students access to new books and create an excitement for reading in children, their families, and friends. Each classroom has an opportunity to browse the Book Fair and create wish lists to share with parents and caregivers. This year’s December timeframe is the perfect opportunity to buy holiday gifts.

Looking for something to keep your 5th and 6th graders busy over Thanksgiving or Winter Break? Why not put together an act for the all-student Highcrest Variety Show?
Typically a mixture of musical & vocal talents, as well as skits & dances, there is nothing more fun or memorable to students than the Variety Show! Kids gain confidence, have fun, and they love to see their friends celebrated front-and-center.
Thanks to a generous grant from The Wilmette Optimist Club, District 39 partner organization Youth Connection will assume direction from the PTO for this year’s Highcrest Variety Show. The show(s) will be held Jan. 26th. Sign-up will be available mid-December and rehearsals will begin Jan. 9th. Visit youthconnectionwilmette.org for more details.
