Giving our teachers a pat on the back

If you ask your child what makes him or her successful at our school, he or she will probably tell you about our excellent teachers. What students take away from a successful education usually centers around a strong connection with teachers who inspire them to achieve their dreams.

Teach and Enrich: Our plan to utilize Beyond Textbooks

This year, Heritage is proud to begin using Beyond Textbooks. As Common Core standards are further implemented across the state, we are rising to meet the challenge. We want to help our students succeed by introducing this innovative program.

Welcome back!

Summer break has now come to its bittersweet end. School resumed on the Heritage Elementary Glendale Campus on Monday, July 28th, and the time to make the 2014-15 school year productive has arrived.

A key preparation for starting a new school year should be getting your children organized. Teachers and staff at Heritage Elementary are already prepared and ready to go with the years plans. Now is the time for parents and students to all be on the same path.

The Heritage Advantage

We are always looking for ways in which to improve academic achievement, especially in the areas of reading and mathematics. According to recent research, programs that were designed to enhance social and emotional support among children also improved academic performance.

Heritage makes enrolling in school fun and informative

Going to school should be fun and so should signing up for school. Heritage Elementary School wants its returning and prospective new students to have fun from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Saturday, June 21, during the annual Family Fun Fest enrollathon.

Show some love to your library!

Have you been to the library lately? The teachers and staff here at Heritage have been focused lately on the importance of preparing for AIMS testing as well as honing students’ skills in math and reading. This can extend to non-school hours, too! Local libraries are a great resource for parents and students in both regards.

‘Every Day Counts’ in school

We are in the midst of our best weather of the year and summer vacation is just around the corner. Though the school year is coming to a close, we wanted to remind parents that attendance in these last few weeks are just as important as it is at the beginning of the year.

Munching on math

AIMS – yes, it’s that time of year again. Even though this is the last year that AIMS tests will be given in our schools, students still need to be fully prepared. One of the best things you can do is make sure your student is well-rested and has a good breakfast on testing days.

Headed into testing season

It’s hard to believe that March is already here, with spring officially just around the corner. For schools, that means testing season! In about a month, we will be giving AIMS tests to our students for the last time. Next school year, a new test will be given that’s designed to show how well students have learned new “Career and Career Ready Standards,” which used to be called “Common Core.”
