My Wonderful Heritage Community,

Happy May!  It is hard to believe we have only three weeks left in our school year. Where did the year go?  As we end our year together, I am sincerely hoping that we are back to normal this August when we all return to school.  We certainly miss our wonderful parent volunteers and community events!  I wanted you all to be aware that we are not having field day this year due to COVID; however Miss Lelo is planning some special activities outside for P.E. that are similar to some of the fun field day activities that we have done in the past. 

We are so excited to share that our online school auction raised over $31,000!  This is truly amazing; I can’t begin to thank you all for your continued generosity.  A huge thank you to Jill Montoya and Anna Lamb who spent countless hours sending donation letters out, gathering items, and entering all items, images and descriptions into Handbid.  We also appreciate our wonderful PTO who supported this event through their marketing efforts as well as the classroom volunteers who worked to create amazing classroom baskets for bidding.  In this very difficult year, we appreciate all who donated items and those of you who bid on our items from home - thank you, thank you!!  The money raised will support our curriculum costs for the 2021-2022 school year.  We are also looking into purchasing a new reading curriculum for grades K-3, so any additional funds we have left after our current curriculums are purchased will go towards purchasing that reading curriculum.  

I hope you all have read my letter on class placements for next year.  Feel free to email me at jean.wolach@dcsdk12.org to share any important information that I should know in regards to your child’s placement for next year.  This year we will send out class lists at the beginning of July.  

I have some exciting news to share with you in regards to staff changes for next year.  Mrs. Tiffany Platt has accepted a leadership position as a GT Facilitator/Reading Interventionist at an elementary school in Parker which is near her home.   We are so sad to see Mrs. Platt leave Heritage but know she will do an amazing job in this new position.  We are so fortunate that Miss Lori Wheeler had requested to go back to the classroom and she will be taking Mrs. Platt’s position in teaching first grade next year.  I also wanted to share that both Ms. Hastings and Mrs. DeYoung have been offered teaching positions in the district.  A couple of lucky schools are getting these two wonderful teachers.  We will certainly miss them both and wish them the best of luck at their new schools.

Sending big hugs to all of you and a special thank you for your continued partnership. 

Warmly,

 

Jean Wolach
