What Highland Means To Me By: Joseph Burnette
My name is Joseph and I am 10 years old. I am a 5th grade student at Highland in Mrs. Griffin’s class. Highland is a great place to learn. There are so many fun people to play with and different programs you can join in.
Highland has fun clubs like Indian Ed. Indian education is fun. Sometimes they let us go swimming because of how hard we worked. They let us go to the center of nature and the garden.
Agent Rasicot is in Highland helping us stay safe. He jokes a lot. In third grade he would tell jokes to the whole class. He has a good sense of humor and he’s a good guy. He shaved his head to raise money for our classmate.
Field trips here are fun and they bring us to the pool. We’ve been to bowling before. We also went to Fargo Park. I think there are trails and a playground. I like my school. It’s a great place to meet new people. The teachers and the people here are some of the nicest people around.

At Highland, we can be in Orchestra when we come into 4th grade. The orchestra learns a lot about the instruments. I play violin. Our teacher, Mrs. Ellis helps us if we are wrong. We learn from our mistakes and give ourselves a lot of time to try again. Mrs. Ellis is very nice.
Highland has excellent teachers. Ms. Griffin is our teacher. She’s one of the coolest teachers I know. I say this because she gives us a lot of free time and tons of group time to work with each other. We work as a team in his class and I like that.
This year, I am in Art Club. The art club shows me how creative I can be. It makes you feel really creative. We are working on a design to build a pencil holder. We also built sculptures out of aluminum foil. Mrs Theilen is super nice and I would know that because I have been in her class before.
If you ask me, the people at this school are very nice. Never in my life have I seen anyone be bullied before. Everyone here is super nice and therefore I feel so safe. I am really lucky to go to this school.
