17 Days of Kindness

As part of Hightower Trail’s Acts of Kindness Project, we are suggesting that students participate in completing a different act of kindness each day beginning on March 14th until Spring Break.  Students will log their acts of kindness on the attached log and as they complete five acts, they will turn the sheet into the box that will be located in the atrium.  For every journal of five acts each student completes they will be recognized on our Acts of Kindness Wall.  Please encourage your student to participate in this project over the next 17 days.   

Click here for a list of acts of kindness.  Please choose a different act each day and record the act on the attached journal.



Looking for something for your student to do in June?  Click HERE for a description of each class, and HERE for additional information and registration form.  Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and classes will fill up quickly.  Register early.  Questions?

ASCA Announces Hightower Trail Middle School as a
2017 RAMP School

The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) is pleased to announce Hightower Trail Middle School in Marietta, GA as a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) school. The RAMP designation, awarded for aligning with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. Since the program’s inception, over 700 schools have been designated as RAMP recipients.

“This year’s RAMP honorees have shown their commitment to students and the school counseling profession,” said Jill Cook, ASCA assistant director. “These schools used data to drive their program development and implementation so all students can achieve success. RAMP designation distinguishes these schools and encourages school counselors nationwide to strive for excellence.”
