My Wonderful Heritage Community,

I am so happy to share that we are off to an amazing start to our school year. It is so great to see your students’ smiling faces each and every day as they walk into school.   This past week, we had the opportunity to do a variety of valuable assessments with your students during our Assessment Day. This information guides our teachers in planning instruction to meet the needs of each and every student in their class. Thank you for your flexibility with your children on that day in support of this.  

Our sixth grade students will be attending Outdoor Ed next week and are so looking forward to biking, hiking, canoeing and kayaking.  This is such a wonderful experience for our oldest students, and it is truly something they look back on all year long with such fond memories. 

We recently received our preliminary results from the 2018-19 CMAS tests. I wanted to share that those results are AMAZING!!  We continue to show great growth as well as achievement. Our teachers are working so hard to support students no matter where they are at academically. Way to go Heritage students!!  We are proud of you. You should receive individual student results sometime next week. Once all the data has been analyzed, I will share the results with all of you.

I am so fortunate to have Mrs. Jill Montoya as our Professional Learning Specialist to guide our staff with professional development, handle discipline issues if needed, and support both our gifted students and students who need additional academic reading  support. She is one busy lady and I am so lucky to have her support.  

We are kicking off our 2019 Fun in the Sun Run and are super excited.  Our amazing PTO is working so hard to make this another successful event for Heritage.   Our goal is to raise over $25,000 and if we get 75% participation, I will dye my hair the color our students pick --- bright pink, yellow, green, orange, or purple!!!!  In addition, there are great prizes including a Limo to Lunch, Plinko money board, an opportunity to win an electric razor scooter, or a Kindle. We will be running all day on September 13th during your child’s specials time!!   Please come out and join us!! Your children always love running with family members.

Thanks for all your support in making our first month so wonderful.   Your kids are the best and I am so grateful to be the leader of such an outstanding school supported by such an amazing community.
