Weekly Update, April 23, 2017

We are wrapping up our series of state testing and want to thank all the families who made sure their students were at school every day, all day. Students exhibited great effort, and we are sure their effort will be rewarded. We will be making up tests during the next few days for those who were absent.

Unfortunately, we did not meet our goal of 95% attendance for the month, as our average as of last Friday was only 89.39%. Students will, therefore, be required to wear uniforms for the remainder of the school year unless we have a spirit day.

We are excited to share that Heroes will remain open as a K-8 school! We will be appealing to the state Board of Education tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. to allow our school to move into the district’s innovation zone. You will hear more about this exciting venture at an upcoming parent meeting. Please look for the date to be announced soon. Thank you to our families and community for your support and encouragement as we fought for our school’s future!

Band students, please remember there is marching band practice after school every Monday andWednesday 3:45-5:30. Please bring a full water bottle and walking shoes!
