Highlands School Invites the community for a Week of Kindness and a 1.5 mile walk in honor of former principal, Susan Stuckey. Join the community for the 3rd Annual Walk for Whale Wishes on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 9:00 AM.

The family fun 1.5 mile walk starts and ends at Highlands Elementary School. We will honor Susan Stuckey, her love for nature and joy of reading, by dedicating a new Maple tree and reflective bench memorial.

The Team Stuckey Future Educator Scholarship has awarded two scholarships to graduating senior students of Naperville Central and Naperville North High Schools who will pursue degrees in education. This year’s scholarship recipients are Sarah Dumler, a 2014 NCHS graduate, who will attend North Central College in Naperville and Elizabeth Wylly, a 2014 NNHS graduate, who will attend Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. Each recipient receives a $5000 scholarship for his or her freshman year of school.

Preceding the Whale Wishes Walk, Highlands will be having a Random Acts of Kindness Week. Each day, the Student Advisory Board will be highlight the ways and places you can show kindness throughout your day. Students, teachers, and families will have the opportunity to witness and record acts of kindness they see students doing in a variety of settings. A form will be sent to everyone to record and return to the office and then the forms will be posted on our Wall of Wonderful on the main bulletin board outside the office to show all the kindness that exists in the Highlands community.

On Wednesday, May 14th, students and staff are encouraged to wear their Whale Wishes t-shirts, Highlands colors (blue and white) or pink in honor of the Walk.

To register, donate, or for more details, please email whalewishes@gmail.com or visit the Team Stuckey website at www.teamstuckey.org. Donations will be accepted before, during and after the event to fund the Team Stuckey Future Educator Scholarship Fund.
