Here’s a Snapshot of What We’ve Done| HFA Projects 

  • Spring, 2021 - HFA is working on sourcing new outdoor furniture for the Court Yard Space so students can enjoy reading outside and small groups can meet in this outdoor space.  
  • Summer, 2020 – HFA supported Learning Center Renovation | Phase 2, that created meeting rooms.  These new spaces are additional work areas for students to collaborate.  
  • Summer, 2019 – HFA supported Learning Center Renovation | Phase 1, sponsoring a “Collaboration Corner – The HIVE” where students can work together on projects and creative tasks, as well as collaborate with teachers for extra help. HFA provided furniture for the new workspace.  
  • Spring, 2018 – HFA funded the installation of a Projector/ Screen System in the Multi-Purpose Room.  
  • Spring, 2017 – HFA transformed the Outdoor Courtyard (adjacent to Learning Center) into usable space for the Staff and Students to enjoy.

The objective of the HFA is to promote good will, effective communication, and cooperation between and among parents, faculty, administration and students.  

In addition, the organization will work to plan/coordinate social functions for each grade level, and provide volunteer resources for a variety of programs/activities that support Highland Middle School. Each parent/guardian is automatically a voting member of their school Family Association once their child is enrolled in the school. 

Each academic year, the HFA is responsible to plan and execute fundraisers where the proceeds/profits are used to purchase items and/or fund programs that enhance the educational experience of the students. The organization’s largest fundraiser is Friends of the HFA – that requests families to make an annual pledge to the school.

Highland Family Association (HFA) is an Illinois-based nonprofit organization recognized under section 501(c)(3).
