Message From Our Principal


Greetings, Highcroft parents and families!  Don’t forget that this Friday is our next Early Release Day and students will be dismissed at 1:45.  Please communicate any dismissal changes in writing with your child’s teacher. 


Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.  Have a great rest of your week!

Donor’s Chooose - Almost There! 

The first grade EGGcellent EDventures project is almost fully funded!  thereteachers have created a Donors Choose project entitled ‘EGGcellent EDventures in 1st Grade’ to fund a project focused on the needs of living things and characteristics of birds.  The project will fund the cost of an incubator, cages, eggs, etc. so the class, in conjunction with Wake County 4H, can hatch eggs.  Please donate to this project at the link below:

Food Drive

Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated food to our ‘Nourishing Noggins’ food drive.  All food and monetary donations go directly to our students.  We will continue collecting food items until Friday.  See the PTA website for more details about specific items needed or monetary donations.


Tie Dye Day

Our next school spirit day is this Friday, March 24th.  Pull out those groovy Tie Dye garments! 


Lost and Found

There hasn’t been a lot of movement in our lost and found pile this week.  Please ask your child to swing by the Lost and Found area (by the exit doors to the playground by the cafeteria) to find anything they are missing.  Unclaimed items will be donated on March 31st.
