Drive-up Materials Distribution

Highlands will be hosting our first all-school materials distribution this coming Wednesday, Sept. 23rd.


All families are invited to drive through the main parking lot any time between the hours of 9:00-3:00 to pick up new materials for your student.


It is really important you stop by this week, as we have very specific materials designed just for your student’s needs based on grade level.


This week will include materials for whole-group instruction such as white boards, notebooks for each subject, leveled book bags (that you will bring back and exchange at the next distribution), and math tools for upcoming math work. 


Just drive up, tell our staff person your student’s name and teacher, and we’ll bring everything right to your car!


We look forward to seeing you (with safe social distancing) soon!

Local Improvement Networks report 2020

In 2016, Renton School District committed to a bold, new approach to improving outcomes for students in a historically underserved area of the district. It began as West Hill NOW! and quickly expanded to become the Renton Innovation Zone. It focused on improvement strategies to support educators in increasing student engagement, designing instruction that is based on conceptual understanding, and building classroom and school communities that support all learners in meeting standard. In addition, the district increased resources to the schools in the Renton Innovation Zone to support them in their intentional strategies to increase family partnerships.

Yet, we know we can’t do it alone, so in 2018 we further expanded this effort by engaging more deeply and explicitly with our community partners. The Renton Local Improvement Network (LIN) has been established to promote partnership between schools, families, community leaders, and community-based organizations. The groups work together with the goal of increasing math proficiency, strengthening the social and emotional learning, and serving the whole child.

Read the recent Local Improvement Network report which highlights lessons learned from year one of the first LIN pilot in Renton and tells the story of how this work began.
