Interested in volunteering at Highlands or within the Appleton Area School District?

We welcome our parents/guardians/community members to become involved with our school activities, and there are so many ways that you can help.

Consider volunteering your time in the LMC and for various activities through the PTO, tutoring programs and as classroom helpers (information is sent home in the first mailgram). Your commitment is a powerful statement to your child about the importance of school.

Contact the Highlands school office for more information. You may be required to fill out a background check form.
