The 8 Habits Behavior Wheel!

Parents/Guardians,


We are always looking for ways to improve in the way that things are done. With that being said we are changing the current structure of our clip charts. Starting on Monday, September 30th we are making the shift to an 8 Habits Wheel to fit more in line with The Leader In Me and our school-wide expectations. Students will now clip around the wheel to the various habits that they are using or showing. This should help tie the action of the habit to the positive clip movement on the wheel. Students will still be able to clip off of the wheel onto a staff member’s shirt, whether that be a teacher, counselor, staff member, secretary or principal. We are trying to emphasize the positive behavior of our students. There has been a lot of research that has shown that drawing attention to the positive behavior of students helps to create a more lasting, positive change in their overall behavior. When your students get home after an amazing day at school they will not have ended the day on a specific “color” like they used to with the clip chart. So, instead of asking them what color they ended on, now the conversation can switch to “What habits did you use today?” Thank you all for being such an important part of Heritage Elementary!


Sincerely,

Mr. Rice

Principal

A Reminder from Mr. Rice

Dear Parents/Guardians,


As the weather changes and starts to get colder outside, I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of our procedures for parent pick-up and drop off.


AM Arrival 9:00 am to 9:15 am

  • For any students that are dropped off to school in the AM, please use the parent drop off line.

  • If your student arrives after the start time, you must come in with your student and sign them in.

AM Kindergarten Pick-Up 12:15 pm

  • Bus riders released first.

  • Car riders released next.

  • WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE that AM Kindergarteners are NOT picked up by walking up to the door.

END of Day School Dismissal 4:05pm

  • Car riders will be released first. Walkers will be dismissed after the car riders.

  • Bus Riders will be dismissed when car riders and walkers are all accounted for.


This is a friendly reminder of our arrival/dismissal procedures. I want to thank everyone for their patience and attention to these procedures. Our goal is to be as quick as possible while maintaining safety for everyone involved. Thank you all for helping to make Heritage Elementary an amazing place to be.


Sincerely,


Mr. Rice

HOLIDAY ASSISTANCE

Dear Families,

The holidays are quickly approaching along with all the wonderful memories made during this special time of the year. The holidays are an enjoyable time with family and friends, however, that does not mean that they are not stressful! I realize some families may need extra assistance in providing a more memorable holiday for their children. Pickerington Schools are teaming up with the Violet Township Fire Department to help provide some holiday assistance for families in need during this holiday season.

For those out and about during the holiday season, you may see big red boxes throughout the community and in the schools. If you would like to donate a new toy/gift for the holiday season it can be placed the big red boxes. Gift cards are also appreciated. If you would prefer

to donate in other ways, please let me know.

If you would like to complete an online form for holiday assistance this year, please contact me by EMAIL or phone. The request link will then be provided to you, only one per household please. This form is handled in a confidential manner; however, the information will be shared with local agencies. More details will be shared with those families requesting holiday assistance. Please remember that we will only be able to supplement your holiday. The online form must be completed by Friday, November 22nd.

Best Wishes,

Mrs. Marieca Mattox

Heritage Elementary School Counselor
