Opening School Weekly Message

posted Aug 19, 2018, 2:31 PM by Julie Shue
Good Afternoon Heroes Families, this is Mrs. Shue, Heroes school principal, with the school opening weekly update.  
We hope everyone has had a restful summer break.  We are so looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!  All students in grade K-8 should arrive at 7:35 tomorrow and we will start school at 7:45 a.m.    Students should gather in the front courtyard area of our main building.  Kindergarten parents may drop off in the front of the school or in the designated kinder drop off area.  The Kindergarten drop off area has moved to a place with more room for dropping off.  Please do not park or leave cars in this area.   All other parents are asked to use the loop near Montezuma and the cemetery for drop off and pick up.  The staff parking lot is not a student pick up area, please use the designated areas only. 
Parents are asked to say goodbye to students as their lines leave the courtyard.  We will be working hard this year to teach proper line etiquette and other school routines, teachers need to have the students’ full attention.
If you need to visit the office tomorrow, we will be staging a waiting area in the media center to avoid standing in lines. We will help adults in the most efficient way possible.
Our school day will end at 3:35 p.m. We are asking parents to meet their students outside in the main courtyard.  We have limited space indoors and need all of our exit areas clear at dismissal time for a safe dismissal. 
Our new school days are Monday through Thursday with no school on Fridays.
This year students have an opportunity participate in the Boys and Girls Club after school program free of charge.  Enrollment packets are available in our office.  We need these back as soon as possible.  In addition, Boys and Girls Club plans to provide programming on Fridays and students will be able to attend for a very slight fee.  They are taking registrations starting on Monday.  Participants will be fed a meal after school, be given support with homework, and build friendships that can last a lifetime.  Applications are available in the office and students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade may join.
Parent information packets will come home with your child on Monday.  We need these returned as soon as possible. And it is critical that every family complete all of the paperwork in the folder.  
Open House will take place on September 5th from 6pm to 7:30 p.m.  We invite parents and students to come to school to meet teachers and get a look around their child’s classroom.  We plan to show you the great work that students are doing and explain our new Wit and Wisdom Reading program as well as our new math curriculum.  
As a reminder- ALL students in grades K-8 are starting at Heroes Academy on Monday.  School begins at 7:45a.m. 
We are looking forward to a wonderful year.
