Looking Ahead to 2017 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 January of 2017 and the end of the second grading period!
As you know, the students will be returning to the building on Tuesday, January 3rd. This may be hard to believe, but there will only be a little over two weeks remaining in the second grading period at that point. The final day of the 2nd grading period will be Friday, January 20th. The week prior will feature our final Staff Inservice Day of the year, on Friday, January 13th. That weekend will feature a four-day weekend for the students, counting Dr. Martin Luther King Day on Monday, January 16th.
As a reminder, report cards will go home on Friday, January 27th. Prior to that, the students will be taking the MAP reading and math computer-based assessment to gauge each student’s development in these two subjects. We will look to get this testing complete so that the teachers can analyze the data during the January staff meeting and Inservice training to help us differentiate instruction to meet the needs of each student. Much like the testing that happened prior to fall conferences, a full report of the testing data will be shared with each parent, towards beginning of February.
January 18th will be a busy day on the Heritage Campus, as we will be recognizing students for our January “Pride Day”. Later that evening, we will have our January Heritage Booster meeting in the Heritage South Media Center at 7:00. Also on that date, during the school day, we will have yearbook photographers on hand to visit each classroom to take candid photos which will be included in the 2016-17 yearbook.
I would like to take a moment to say “thank you” for the incredible generosity that was on display at Heritage Elementary during the month of December. Thanks to the efforts of our students to donate hats, mittens, and gloves, as well as some toys, many children will have a brighter holiday as a result of everyone’s generosity. Also, we had a tremendous outpouring of donated food items in conjunction with “Math Week”. These food items will be put to good use by the Blessing House and Women’s Shelter of Lorain County to help area families in need.
On behalf of the staff at Heritage Elementary, we would like to take a moment to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season. We look forward to greeting the students back to the building on Tuesday, January 3rd. Have a wonderful break and a Happy New Year!
