Welcome to our updated Heritage South 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 and fourth grade.
It is hard to believe that we have now entered the month of December! As a reminder, we will reach the midway point of the second grading period on Friday, December 6th. As has been past practice, Interim Reports will be going home to any student that currently has a "D" or an "F" in any academic area for the second quarter. We also encourage parents to check on their child's academic progress in each subject area by logging onto the PowerSchool program. Please contact the Heritage South office should you need your username/password to access this important program.
Looking ahead to the rest of the month, the third grade students have been busy preparing for our annual "Winter Concert", under the direction of our music teacher, Mrs. Berlyoung. In keeping with the long-standing tradition to account for the number of students in our fourteen third grade homerooms, the concert will be divided into two performances, with half the third grade classes performing at 6:00 and the remaining third grade classes performing at 7:15. We hope to see you there! If you are unable to attend, please note, the concert will be broadcast periodically throughout the month of December on the district's cable access channel (Channel 22).
Also in December, we look forward to our annual "Math Week" activities, that will take place during the week of December 16th. All Heritage South students will be busy all throughout the week participating in a series of fun and challenging math activities in their classrooms as well as in common areas throughout the building that week. To coincide with Math Week, we will also be placing hats, mittens, gloves, scarves and even coats on our "Giving Tree". These items will be donated to the CRS of Avon/Avon Lake to benefit area families in need. We will also have a food drive during Math Week to benefit local families during the holiday season.
Finally, I wanted to remind everyone that Winter Break officially begins after the last day of school, which will be Friday, December 20th. School will resume on Monday, January 6th, 2014. We would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe holiday season!
Once again, thank you for visiting our updated site. Please do not hesitate to contact the school should you happen to have any questions or concerns regarding your child's continuing educational experience at Heritage South. Thank you again for visiting our website!
