  • Amazon Smile

    The Point Higgins PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) has set up an Amazon Smile Account! 

    This means that when you shop at smile.amazon.com (or simply click on the Amazon Smile logo above) our PTO will receive 0.5% of the purchase price.  This may not seem like much but it adds up since most of us order from Amazon!   

    Thank you PTO!

    November Students of the Month
    Theme:  Humility
    With this character trait you have a confident yet modest opinion of your own self-importance.  You don't see yourself as "too good" for other people or situations.  With this character trait you have a learning and growth mindset and the desire to express and experience gratitude for what you have, rather than expecting you deserve more.
