My name is Grant Vander Vorst and I am the Elementary Principal/SPED Director at Highmore-Harrold Schools.  My wife, Teresita (Terri) and I have one son Colt who is two years old.  I have two older boys that reside in Rapid City, James Patton (10th grade) and Simon Grant (7th grade).  

Fundraising in the Community

Pictured below is a group of elementary students wearing hats as part of a fundraiser. Students have the opportunity to wear hats and in return donate a dollar or a non-perishable food pantry item to our local agency.

 Each month elementary classes had an attendance challenge at school.  If you had perfect attendance for the month you were entered in a drawing for a pop and personal pan pizza.  The 2nd grade had the best attendance rate for the year as a class and they were awarded a pizza party at the end of the year.  Students success rate in school is tied to their attendance.  Please do your best to make sure your child is in school everyday.

Box Tops for Education

Each class at Highmore-Harrold participates in the box top program sponsored by General Mills. Box Tops are on many household products that we buy and at a value of 10 cents each they do generate nearly $1,000 annually each year for our elementary school.



Arts in Education

Highmore-Harrold Elementary realizes that the arts are an important part of the educational process.  Our school was fortunate to receive a visit from the Hampstead Stage Co. where our students got a chance to participate in the play, "Prince and the Pauper."  Programs like these are paid for in part by revenues received from the Box Tops for Education Program and the School Mall Fundraiser. Thank you for your support of these programs.
