Welcome to a new school year.  A new school year is always exciting.  I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to High Hills for another exciting and productive year.  For those who are new to our school community, I would like to extend a special welcome. I hope you have had an enjoyable and relaxing summer.  The first day of school is August 18th.  School will begin daily at 7:30 a.m. and dismiss at 2:15 p.m. Students are tardy after 7:25 and will need to be signed in with attendance. Breakfast will be served from 6:45 a.m-7:15 a.m. Breakfast and lunch is free for all students.




I am honored to be representing High Hills Elementary School as the 2014-2015 Teacher of the Year! High Hills Elementary is a school of eager learners and motivated teachers who take pride in education. I am excited to have the opportunity to continue my educational journey as a teacher at High Hills Elementary in the wonderful Sumter School District.
