Heywood Avenue School

Back to School Nights

Thanks to you and our students, we had a great parent turnout in attending our Middle School and Primary Grades "Back to School" Nights. You did a great job of informing our parents about the content areas you are teaching and what their child can expect this year in their new grade. I predict that we will increase the number of parents participating this year because all of us have started this year making them feel part of their school community!
