March and April 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 spring months of March and April at Heritage Elementary!
The months of March and April will be busy at Heritage Elementary. Here are a few items and events to look forward to....
The month of March will be highlighted by the "COSI on Wheels" event on the Heritage campus to kick off the month. Traveling science displays from the COSI science museum will be on the campus for students to interact with during this three-day residency at Heritage. During the following week, we turn our attention to "Science Night" on the evening of March 8th, from 6:00-8:00. During this highly interactive event, Heritage students and their families will have the opportunity to explore dozens of engaging math and science-themed displays to learn more about possible future careers in the science and mathematics fields. We are truly grateful to the countless parent and community member volunteers who donate their time and talents to make this event such as success!
March also features our two grade level spelling bees. The Third and Fourth Grade Spelling Bee will take place on Tuesday, March 20th in the Heritage South Gymnasium. This will be followed by the Fifth and Sixth Grade Spelling Bee on the following Tuesday, March 27th, in the North Gymnasium. Each spelling bee will feature two finalists from each classroom.
As we turn the calendar to April, we have a busy month highlighted by the yearly administration of the Ohio State Assessments, This will begin the week students return from Spring Break (the week of April 9th), and will continue for a three-week period in April. During this timeframe, all students in third and fourth grade will take a reading and math state assessment, and the students in fifth grade will take a reading, math, and science state assessments. A complete testing schedule will be going home to the parents in the coming weeks to help families prepare for these important assessments.
