Free- and Reduced-Lunch Program Applications Now Available

Every year families need to reapply for the free- and reduced-lunch program. These applications can benefit you and your family by determining the eligibility of your child(ren) to receive their lunches for free or at a reduced rate. They benefit the school, because Title I federal funding is determined based on the information reported on these forms. Completing these forms benefit all involved—lower costs for you and your family, and funding for the school that supports special programs and enrichment for students.

Meet the Teacher Night Coming Up

On July 22, from 5-7 p.m., we’re asking all students and parents to join us for our Meet the Teacher Night.

Summer Guide to Glendale for Parents

While summertime might be considered the “off-season” for some who call Glendale, and the Phoenix Metro Area home, not all the area’s residents move with the seasons. And, as the temperatures rise, so do the opportunities for some cherished family time.

Summer is on the Horizon

The last day of school is fast approaching, for that reason we wanted to make everyone aware of the amazing opportunities we have planned for the summer.

2nd Annual Heritage Elementary Color Run

Show your true colors and run or walk through vibrant pops of color and get tie-dyed for a good cause. It is an engaging recreational event for families, and the community at-large. We invite you all to join us for a joyful Saturday full of laughing and recreation. All proceeds from the Color Run benefit Heritage Elementary Charter School in Glendale.

We <3 Teachers!

The first week of May is Teacher Appreciation. We invite all families to thank the teachers for the hard work they do all year long. Thank you notes and emails are a great way to make your child’s teacher feel appreciated. If you are able, we hope you’ll participate in our Teacher Appreciation Week. Also don’t forget about Teacher Appreciation Night at Peter Piper. See the flyer for more information.
