Some Info for Highlands Parents

As part of our ImpactLives Day, we would like the students to give up their lunch for the day and experience what the life of a hungry child is like. The Fortified Rice & Soy Casserole provides a starving child with 21 essential vitamins and minerals for a growing body. The students who tried it last year thought it was a tasty, worthwhile experience. Please follow these instructions to sign-up your child(ren) to taste or eat a IL meal:

Log onto

    1. Click on the link for ImpactLives 2009
    2. Click on the IL Lunch Sign-Up tab
    3. Fill in your child’s first name, last name, teacher, room number and quantity of 1
    4. Click on Register

***Deadline for IL Lunch Sign-Up is Monday, December 14th***

We are also looking for parent volunteers to help make the day go smoothly. We are looking for volunteers to assist during each of the five 1-hour food packing shifts as well as during a set-up shift and a clean-up shift. Volunteers who wish to assist for the entire day are more than welcome. Follow these simple instructions to sign-up to volunteer:

    1. Log onto
    2. Click on the link for ImpactLives 2009
    3. You should be on the Volunteer page. Scroll down the list of Volunteer positions until you find the shift that corresponds to your child’s teacher.
    4. Click on the Volunteer link next to the option you selected
    5. Fill in your first name, last name, email, and phone
    6. Click on Submit

***Deadline for Volunteer Sign-up is Friday, December 11th***

Please note that we will make every effort to pair you up with your child(ren) at the same station during this event. Position assignments will be done on a first come, first served basis so sign-up early.

If you have difficulties with either of the sign-up processes above please contact Stephanie Zahrbock or Michelle Steinke.
