December Events at Heritage Elementary!
Welcome to our updated Heritage Elementary webpage. We hope that this site will be a helpful resource for our parents and students to learn more about the goings-on in third, fourth, and fifth grade. Here are a few updates as we turn our attention to the months of October and November at Heritage Elementary!
The month of December will be busy at Heritage Elementary as we close out the 2017 calendar year. Here are a few items and events to look forward to....
On the third Wednesday of each month, we will recognize students for Pride Day, with the December character trait of "Caring". Classroom teachers will be nominating multiple students from their classrooms who best reflect these important character traits on a daily basis in their classroom. On each Pride Day, we ask each student in the buildng to show school spirit by wearing Purple and Gold. Also on the third Wednesday of the month, we also hold our montly Heritage Booster meetings at 7:00 PM in the South Media Center. These meeting affords parents and community members an outstanding opportunity to learn more about the many goings-on on the campus!
One of the highlights of December are the many holiday-themed concerts that will feature students all throughout the month. December will feature the 4th Grade Vocal concert on December 4th, and the 5th grade Band and Orchestra concert on December 5th. Later in the month, we also look forward to the Heritage Chorus concert at AHS on December 11th, and the 3rd grade vocal music concert on December 12th.
Another highlight of the month is "Math Week". All throughout the final week of school (December 18-20), students will be engaged in a whole host of interactive, holiday, math-themed activities in the classroom. To conincide with the month, we will also have a winter clothing drive to benefit area families in need. Students will be encouraged to bring in hats, mittens, gloves, etc. to be placed on our "Giving Tree", and we will also be overseeing a collection of math-themed food items to be donated to area families in need.
Finally, we wrap up 2017 with the Winter Festival in Heritage classrooms. Thanks to the support of the Boosters, students will enjoy the opportunity to participate in winter-themed games and crafts during the final hour of school prior to the official start of Winter Break on December 20th.
