Goal Setting With Report Cards

The quarter ends this month and Heritage Elementary School, your Glendale charter school, will be sending home report cards soon. Instead of just pin-pointing on the grades, look at these as part of an ongoing conversation about your child’s education. Report cards are a great way to notice and celebrate accomplishments, as well as a tool to help set explicit goals for the upcoming quarter or the rest of the year.

Celebrating Grandparents Day with Heritage Elementary in Glendale


Grandparents bestow upon their grandchildren
The strength and wisdom that time
And experience have given them.

Grandchildren bless their Grandparents
With a youthful vitality and innocence
That help them stay young at heart forever.

Together they create a chain of love
Linking the past with the future.
The chain may lengthen,
But it will never part…


First Monday in September

That’s right! We’re talking about Labor Day. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, “Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”i

Keeping in Touch With Facebook

Remember parents, Heritage Elementary has a Facebook page. It is another great resource to keep up with what’s going on at school. We post about upcoming events and link to our newsletters and blog posts. These pages also have great school photo albums. So stop by—like the page, check out our snapshots or read some useful articles.
