Highland Park High School kicks off its annual Charity Drive fundraiser on February 1 with an all school opening assembly.
This year’s fundraising recipient – chosen by students and staff – is Children’s Oncology Services – One Step at a Time Camps. Children’s Oncology Services provides hundreds of children who are suffering with cancer, the opportunity to attend a summer camp experience.

Silent Auction/Art Bazaar – Friday, February 8th beginning at 6:30 p.m.
