Meet The Teacher Night is Coming

To ensure your child has a great first day of school, students and parents are required to attend Meet the Teacher Night on Tuesday, July 25, from 5-7 p.m. You’ll be able to sign up for lunches, purchase uniforms, determine bus routes and numbers, bring in school supplies, and, of course, meet the teacher.

Preparing for the Start of School

As a new academic year begins, students start school with new goals, opportunities, and challenges. After a few months of vacation, it may be difficult for children to get back into school mode. Here are some ways parents can help their kids transition from summer break into the school routine.

Fall Sports Tryouts

Don’t miss your chance to be part of the team! Heritage will be conducting tryouts for Coed Flag Football and Girls Volleyball, August 7-9, from 3:30-5:30 p.m.

Managing Your Child’s Mobile Device

Other than perhaps pagers in the 1990s, it’s difficult to think of any product designed for adults which has become as ubiquitous among kids as mobile devices have become. (Tell your kids about pagers. It’ll make them laugh.) Smartphones—and, to a lesser extent, tablets—are a necessity in most children’s lives.

Apply Online for the Free and Reduced Price Lunch Program

Heritage parents can quickly and safely apply online for free or reduced price lunches for their child for the 2017-2018 school year. All students must reapply every year. To avoid a disruption in benefits, submit your application by July 31, 2017.

Incorporating Nutrition into Mealtime for Picky Eaters

Is your child refusing to eat anything but chicken nuggets and french fries? All too often, kids are bingeing on unhealthy snack foods instead of fruits and vegetables—children today can go days without consuming any greens at all. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) suggests vegetables should be consumed with every meal and snack. However, produce intake can be difficult when kids are picky eaters.

Creating Summer Goals

While it seems like summer break just started, it won’t be long before school begins again, which makes this a good time to sit down with your kids to choose a few things they can accomplish before summer ends.

Getting Through Summer Vacation

School’s out, the little tykes have been on vacation for a week, and they’re already bored. How are you going to make it to August? Here are some ideas on how parents and children can get through the summer and have a good time doing it just by planning fun things to do every day. It’s easier than you think.

Summer Food Service Program May 22-July 14

Besides giving kids a fun place to beat the summer heat with games, activities, computers, drama, music, and academic enrichment, the Summer Food Service Program at Heritage Glendale will provide nutritious meals, from May 22 to July 14, so kids are healthy and ready to learn when they return to school in the fall. No registration or fees required, open to the public.

Summer’s Coming

It’s May, which means that preschoolers, kindergarteners, and 8th graders will be graduating, and every student will be making the transition from school to summer break.

Heritage Color Run

Join us this Saturday! Participants start the run wearing a white T-shirt, and, after running through powerful pops of color, cross the finish line in tie-dyed splendor. The May 6 Color Run is always a fun day for kids and adults alike, with all proceeds going to support Heritage Glendale.

Mother’s Day Tea

Moms and mother figures of students in kindergarten and 1st grade are invited to a Mother’s Day Tea on May 11, at 2 p.m. Join your young lady or gentleman student for tea sandwiches, light refreshments, and dessert.
