Highland is a partner with the Gail Borden Public Library in expecting all students to read over the summer. For the past two years Highland Elementary has won both the Gail Borden Summer Reading Traveling Trophy and the Dr. Torres Summer Reading Challenge. These awards go to the school with the highest percentage of students completing the Gail Borden Summer Reading Program.
For the summer of 2017, students will be expected to read daily and complete the Gail Borden Public Library Summer Reading Program. More information about these expectations will be shared in the spring before school dismisses for the summer.
