Greetings from Heritage Elementary:
Welcome back from Spring Break! The weather has finally warmed up, and the students and teachers are glad to have the opportunity to go outside for recess again. With that in mind, we want to caution parents to watch the weather forecasts and help your students dress appropriately. After all, spring in Indiana is always unpredictable.
Students gave great effort during our ISTEP and IREAD testing last month. We have one more round of ISTEP the week of May 6th through the 10th. Please help your students prepare by ensuring they get enough rest and encouraging them to do their best. We also ask that parents try to avoid scheduling appointments during the school day the week of testing.
The end of another school year is rapidly approaching and there are certainly some dates to keep in mind:
First, we want to remind parents that Thursday, May 8 is the final extended day of the year. After the 8th students will be dismissed at their regular time of 2:40 PM. There will be two collaboration Wednesdays after that week in which students will have an early release at 2:10 PM. There will be no collaboration Wednesdays after Memorial Day weekend.
There are several big dates coming up in April. First, we have Grandparents' Day on April 16th from 8:00 - 10:30 AM. Then, there will be Date with Dad on the 22nd from 7:00 - 8:00 AM. Also, don't miss the PTO school carnival from 6:00 - 8:00 PM on the 25th. These are great opportunities to visit the school and have fun with your students. Finally, if you are going to have a student beginning kindergarten next fall, you will want to stop in and enroll them during our Kindergarten Round-Up on April 29th from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM.
If you have a Kindergartener, you will want to remember June the 3rd because we will be holding our Kindergarten Graduation at 1 PM. Also, Field Day is scheduled for Thursday, May 29 with Monday, June 2nd as the rain date. Finally, don't forget that June the 4th will be our last day of school. We are all looking forward to a great finish to this school year!
