Message from the principal-December 2, 2019
Welcome back from a snowy Thanksgiving break! There’s a lot going on in the next few weeks at school. We do our best to communicate regularly. Please remember to check your Class Dojo app (maybe even turn on the notifications again), emails and voice messages regularly so that you don’t miss out and know what is going on.
This week our PTO will be selling “Smencils” for $1 between 7:30 and 7:45 AM. Kinder and 1st graders can buy smencils down their hallway and 2-5th grade in the main hallway. Please bring bills less than $5 so we can be sure to have enough change.
This Friday, December 6, is our annual family pizza and movie night for Heiman families. You should have received a flyer and information on pre-ordering pizza so we’re sure to have enough. The movie is free, the pizza costs $1 a slice, you need to pre-order the pizza by this Wednesday! We will serve pizza starting at 5:30PM and the movie will start at 6:00!
Did you know that you can sign-up to receive our breakfast/lunch menus for each month by email? Please visit the following link, select a school and a menu. Then scroll to the bottom of the menu and you will see the email sign up on the lower right-hand corner. There is additional information on all things related to District 6 food services at this site as well. https://greeleyschools.nutrislice.com/menu/
Between now and the winter break students will have multiple opportunities to show all that they’ve learned since the start of the school year. All students will take the DIBELS reading assessment this Wednesday and students in 2nd-5th grade will take their middle of the year NWEA benchmark assessment in reading and math on December 10th and 11th. It is important to keep encouraging your student to be in school everyday and do their very best!
Have you found yourself curious about appropriate screen time for your child? What about how much sleep your child should receive on a weekday vs weekend? At Heiman we will begin holding educational opportunities for parents to learn the ins and outs of these topics and more during a series we call "Coffee Talk". During Coffee Talk, presenters from the school and community will come in to educate parents and guardians on ways to help our students grow and stay safe. On our website is a survey for you to help us choose the best days, times, and topics for our Coffee Talks, please give us your feedback!
The fresh fruit and vegetable afternoon snack menu this week will be red grapes apple slices, plums and snap peas.
Finally, please be sure your child comes to school dressed for the weather! It looks like the temperatures will be warm enough to be outside all this week and students enjoy it more when they are dressed appropriately. Our playground has snow and will be wet as the snow melts so...wear your boots!!
Remember that your family may need to plan a little extra time to get to school on colder mornings. The school day starts at 7:45 AM and students are marked tardy after 7:50 AM. Drop off and pick up procedures are still the same, only buses and cars with handicapped stickers or Heiman Parking Passes should expect to drop off or pick up in the parking lot. Otherwise, use the continuous lane on Palermo or plan to park in the neighborhood and walk across the street.
Our school has been participating in Boxtops for Education program for a long time. This program is going digital. From now on we will not be accepting physical Boxtops here at school. Instead, we ask that you download the app and do all Boxtops for Education digitally. It’s as easy as scanning your receipt. Make sure to select Ann K. Heiman as your school! We’ve earned $62.70 so far this year; can we make it to $100 by January? We can if we all participate!
