Highland Park High School notes
Updated: January 14, 2013 2:25PM
A group of HPHS teachers will be working at McDonald’s on Dec. 13 to raise money for Highland Park High School – Close Up.
The program is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to experience their government in action. From visits to Washington’s famous monuments, memorials and institutions, to meetings with their Congressional delegation on Capitol Hill, Close Up students get a first-hand look at the American political system and consider what role they, as students, play in our democracy. Throughout the one-week trip, students explore D.C. and interact with students from all across the country.
McTeachers Night is an effort to help raise funds for students requesting financial assistance. HPHS teachers will be working at the Highland Park McDonald’s at 1988 First Street from 4 to 7 p.m. Twenty percent of monies brought in by families and friends will be donated to Highland Park High School – Close Up.
