Each classroom will have games and holiday activities; prizes (other than candy) will be given out. There will also be a cake walk, tickets for which may be purchased for 25¢.

Fall fun for the whole family! Don’t miss our harvest fest

On Friday, October 23 Heritage Elementary will be hosting a Harvest Festival for the school. Costumes are welcome, though we ask that students leave their masks at home. There will be activities and games in the classroom— prizes other than candy will be given out. We are also having a cake walk. Tickets are 25¢ each. Parents, we are accepting donations of baked goods for the cake walk.

Making the Most of Parent-Teacher Conferences

With fall, the first report cards and parent-teacher conferences of the academic year arrive. Heritage Elementary School, your Williams charter school, is no exception to this rule. Information on these one-on-one sessions with your child’s teacher will be going home shortly, making this the perfect time to discuss how to ensure these meetings are successful and useful for all involved. Every year there is more research documenting the connections between academic achievement and parental involvement in schools. Heritage believes firmly that parent engagement in education is vital to the academic success of every student, and encourages parents to be active participants in their student’s academic growth. We all—parents, students, teachers, staff, and administration—play important roles in the achievement of a shared goal: academic and character achievement.
