Highlander Days


Highlander Days is a week long event where the school breaks up into 4 teams, called Houses (North, South, East, and West) to compete in a variety of different activitiesThe Highlander activities combine sport, fun, and culture in a uniquely Scottish and Hewes style. Daily lunchtime activities help Houses earn points and the overall winning House will earn an ice cream social! How can your House win? Participate in any and all of the activities available during the week or at the Highlander Friday Festival.

 At the end of the week,  our Highlander Friday Festival will take place. The Friday Festival will be at school on  Friday, October 19th from 2:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. There will be music, games, food, and lots of fun! The Winning House will be announced at the Friday Festival!

In addition to the fun activities during Highlander Week, this year we are partnering with a local non-profit organization, Operation Warm Wishes, by collecting items for those in need. Operation Warm Wishes is dedicated to helping and serving the homeless, troubled youths, struggling families, Veterans and senior citizens in need throughout Orange County, CA and the world. They  collect food, clothing, shoes, and toiletries from our community and distribute to those in need daily.

Highlanders can earn a point for their House and help others in need by bringing in an item. What could be better?

Here is a list of items needed:

  • Socks

  • Tooth brushes

  • Snacks (granola bars, shelf-stable snacks.)

  • Small Blanket

  • Bottled Water

  • An Encouraging Note
