October Key of Excellence

This year Heritage Elementary School has adopted the Eight Keys of Excellence as part of our Character Education and RTI:B program.


October Key of the Month


FAILURE LEADS TO SUCCESS – Learn from mistakes
View failures as feedback that provides you with the information you need to learn, grow, and succeed.

When we live the Key of Failure Leads to Success we see failures as feedback, we learn from them and make the changes needed to be more successful in the future.

To live this Key successfully we may need to change the way we think about failure. Rather than viewing failure in a negative way where we put ourselves down and think WE are a failure, think of failure as a valuable learning experience. When we look at our mistakes with a view to learning from them, rather than sending ourselves negative messages, we are on the path to success.

We may be reluctant to try different things because we’re afraid of failing. Fear of failure does nothing but keep us in our comfort zone where we stick with the familiar, the “safe” choices where we don’t “risk” another failure. When we step out of our comfort zone—when we’re willing to try something new—that is when we take a step toward success.

The only real failure is not learning from our mistakes. The key to success is to look carefully at what went wrong, change what we did the first time, and try again by applying what we learned.

Spring 2021 TCAP Family Portal

Each year, TCAP tests are designed to assess what our students know and what we can do to help them succeed in the future. They provide feedback about students' academic progress and how it aligns with grade-level expectations. Now families can find detailed, personalized, information about their child’s progress on the TCAP Family Portal.

Here are some ways to use the TCAP Family Portal:
  • Identify student strengths and next steps for areas to improve in the future.
  • Use information presented in the portal to engage in conversations with educators about your student’s academic progress.
  • Track progress over time with a “Test History” feature.
  • Find helpful links to department TCAP resources.


Families can register here with their student’s USID number. Data from the spring 2021 testing went live in the portal on Friday, July 30 for TCAP and became available on August 20 for TCAP-Alternate. Use the seven-digit number found on your student's ISR and add two zeroes in front of that number. The resulting nine-digit number will enable you to create an account for your student. For example, a state ID 1234567 would become 001234567.

A toolkit to support districts in communicating about this resource is available here, including the Family Portal FAQ available here. Videos to help users in navigating the portal are available on Best for All Central.


Your student's USID number can be found on their TCAP Reports that were sent home on Friday, September 3rd with progress reports.
