Highlands Preschool Celebrates 50 Years!
Since 1963 Highlands Preschool has provided outstanding programs to the preschoolers of the North Shore and their families. Our ties to our community run deep, and we are so excited to be celebrating 50 years in the community.
On Saturday June 7th 2014, Highlands Preschool celebrated our 50th Anniversary by holding a Family Fun Day at the school. Hundreds of families enjoyed a fun-packed day with carnival games, live music and refreshments. We welcomed Mayor Walton and MLA Sultan, and our dedicated fire fighters and police. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this such a wonderful celebration of our preschool!
We will have a full update on the event and pictures in the upcoming weeks here on the Highlands Preschool website. However, we would like to post a series of “thank yous” to the people who made this event possible.
First, we would like to thank “you”, the students, parents, and community members who made our Family Fun Day the great event it was. We also thank the exceptional parents who volunteered their time to set up, run and clean up the event. We know your time with your families is paramount and we thank you for giving it up to help. We could not have made this event happen without you!
In addition, we would like to thank the District of North Vancouver Fire Department and the North Vancouver RCMP for attending our event and allowing the children to explore and learn about your emergency vehicles.
A special thank you goes to the parents who baked cakes for our very successful cake walk. These were a special treat for all of the participants. Those cakes were awesome!
Finally, we would like to extend our gratitude to the teachers who donated their free time to help run this special event. Have a great summer!
