Special Events

Throughout the academic year, Highland School hosts several special events. These events, run by dedicated volunteers and staff, help to bring our community together while raising funds and awareness for a range of programs and activities.

Here's a brief summary of the most prominent events held each year including our annual Golf Tournament, Highland for the Holidays shopping event, the Highland Auction, and Grandparents Day.

Highland Classic Golf Tournament
Friday, September 29, 2017

Each Fall, Highland School hosts a golf tournament for members of the Highland community and their guests. Players group together in teams of four and then work together to try and post their best score over the 18 hole event. Special prizes are offered throughout the round for the team that gets closest to the pin or that hits the longest drive. Food and beverages are provided throughout the morning round and then players gather for a great lunch after the round. Putting contests, prizes and raffles are also part of the day's events.


In past years, the event has been held at Fauquier Springs Country Club in Warrenton. Tickets and sponsorships for the event are available. For more information, please contact Briar Leake, Highland's Director of Special Events, at bleake@highlandschool.org or call 540-878-2794.

Highland Loves Main Street
Friday, November 17, 2017

As we celebrate our 90th Anniversary, Highland School continues our cooperative relationship with the local small businesses that are the lifeblood of our Piedmont region. On Friday, November 17, 2017 participating merchants in the Town of Warrenton will donate back to Highland School 10% of all sales to “Highland Loves Main Street” customers. (Complete list of merchants coming soon!)
So grab your family and friends, start your holiday shopping early, and help raise money for Highland School! Just say “Highland Loves Main Street” when visiting each store and 10% of your purchase will come back to Highland.
And when you make a purchase at participating stores, you’ll get a coupon for a half-price beverage and appetizer at Molly’s Irish Pub, where Highland parent Casey Ward will have some tables reserved for you to socialize with your fellow Hawks and rest up for your next round of shopping!

The Highland Auction
Saturday, April 14, 2018

Our biggest social and fundraising event of the year is our annual Highland Auction.  Each spring, the Upper School’s gymnasium is transformed into a theme-laced fantasy by a team of dedicated parents, staff and faculty to set the stage for a beautiful and bountiful silent and live auction, complete with buffet dinner and dancing. It is a festive and fun evening in support of our school and our children, with underwriting sponsorships and generous donations – small and large – given by Highland families, staff, faculty, friends and the business community. There is something for everyone, and everyone can go home a winner!

The importance of this event is indisputable, as it provides invaluable financial support for all aspects of our children's education, from faculty compensation, to curriculum development, faculty training and fellowships, infrastructure maintenance and growth, technology initiatives, student scholarships and financial aid, and more.  Its success is truly dependent upon the support of our community of families and friends, including the always-essential donations and underwriting sponsorships, but also extending to volunteering to help with event preparations, and, in true Hawk spirit – by attending this wonderful evening affair!

To learn more about how you can be involved in this year's Highland Auction, contact Amy Babcox, Advancement and Business Support at ababcox@highlandschool.org or call 540-878-2778.

Grandparents Day
Thursday, April 26, 2018

Each Spring, we invite the grandparents and families of Highland students to campus for a fun and inspiring morning event. Grandparents and families gather in the Upper School gym for a light breakfast and then our Lower and Middle School students and teachers take over. Students love to show off their school to their extended families and are proud to entertain them with songs and performances that highlight some of the things they've been working on throughout the year.

Afterwards, grandparents and family members are invited to visit their student's classrooms and meet their teachers and friends. It's always great to see the power of home and school, two of the most important elements in a child’s life, working together, is what makes great things possible for our students.

As always, we thank you for your involvement with and support of Highland School.
