Message from the Administrative Team


School Adminstration Team: Mr. Mark Kolohon (VP), Ms. Lori Klages (VP) and Ms. Andrea Tang (Principal).

October 2, 2014
Welcome to our home page! You are welcome to contact a school administrator at any time if you have a concern or suggestion. Our number is 519-924-2721. We try to update this page weekly so you know what's going on at the Highlands.

PROGRESS REPORTS: Progress reports went home with students today along with a school newsletter.  Parent/Student/Teacher interviews will be held next Thursday, Oct. 9th from 6:30 until 8:00 p.m. All parents are invited to attend.

Me to We: 14 students and Ms. Burton attended We Day in Toronto today. Watch for upcoming events hosted by the Humanitarian Club as a result of their inspiring day.

TERRY FOX RUN - The annual Terry Fox Run to raise money for cancer research took place on Thursday, September 25th. Students ran from Chatsworth to GHSS. Participating students raised $1097.73 this year. Way to go Lions!

October 8th is an Early Dismissal Day: buses will go home two hours ahead of usual.

ON-LINE PAYMENTS: GHSS is a pilot school this year for a new on-line payment system. Parents and students will be able to pay student fees, sports fees and field trip fees on-line eliminating the need for students to carry cash or parents to write cheques. This is a safer and more efficient system to collect fees and we encourage all families to register. At present, parents may purchase a student card and/or yearbook on line. Follow the link on below to register.

Photo Re-take Day will be Friday, October 17th.

Halloween Dance - SAC is hosting the first dance of the year on Thursday, October 30th. Plan to attend! It will be a great night.

SCHOOL SAFETY- All schools in Ontario are required to hold 6 Fire Drills, 2 Lockdown Drills and one Severe Weather Drill annually. These will begin soon at GHSS. Our Lockdown Drill will take place in October with the assistance of our Community Policing Officer, Constable Ringrose. Visitors will be asked to wait outside until the drill has been completed.

GHSS SCHOOL COMMUNITY ADVISORY COUNCIL: The minutes of our September 11th, 2014 meeting will be posted and linked to our home page. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, November 3rd at 6:30 p.m. in the libary. All are welcome! Please call the principal for more information.

BUS TOWER NOTIFICATIONS: School bus cancellations, school closures and school event notifications are now available on-line. A link to the cancellations website can easily be found on the Student Transportation Consortium website at (follow the link named “Bus Cancellation Website”). Cancellations for our school will appear on the page named Zone 15, Dundalk, Flesherton, Markdale, & Maxwell. If you would like to automatically receive an email each time a new posting is made just press the “Follow” button at the bottom of the screen and enter your email address. You can also follow on Twitter and RSS.

We are very excited to announce that we are one of the first schools in Bluewater District School Board to offer parents the convenience of paying online for school activities, field trips and sports events.
For safety and efficiency reasons, we want to reduce the amount of cash and cheques coming into our school. School related expenses will be available online for you to make payment for the next school year.
You can register for your online payment account now and payments will be accepted beginning September 8, 2014.  Click on the image below to get started.
