Welcome Back!!!

August 2023

Message From Mr. Olson

Hello to the Heritage Elementary School Families!

It is hard to believe that we are two short weeks away form the opening of school on August 29th! We do hope you are able to find some time over the next two weeks to enjoy the remaining days of summer and have some quality family time. Personally, I can not wait for the first days of school! I look forward to the energy of the students and staff coming back into the halls!

Speaking of halls, we are certainly ready to walk these halls due the hard work of our custodial staff. Mr. Tittle, Mrs. Thoren, Mrs. LIvernoche and Mr. Laabs have worked hard to make the school clean and ready for all to enter. Also, a big thank you to Mrs. Lapierre for making sure the students are enrolled and assigned to a classroom. We truly would be lost without these people helping with getting the school year ready. Finally, a thank you to all the staff who have been in the building throughout the summer to ensure that the classrooms are a warm and inviting place for our students. It is amazing the amount of hours these people put in to make sure Heritage Elementary School is ready for your children this upcoming school year.

There is a lot of informaiton in this newletter so please read to the end. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out at any time. My email is polson@dcrsd.org and the phone number at the school is 508-248-4884.

Free and Reduced Lunch Applications

When paperwork comes from the school the first week please be on the lookout for the free and reduced lunch paperwork. Even though the state has approved free and reduced lunch for all filliing out this paperwork is very important as it directly affects funding that the school may receive. Thank you very much for your support.

We realize that the beginning of school can be a stessful time for many students. With that in mind we will be hosting an Open House for all students of the Heritage Elementary School. This will allow you to put a face to a name and the students can see where their classroom is located before the first day of school.

August 28th - 2nd Grade Open House - 1:30 - 2:30

August 28th - 3rd and 4th Grade Open House - 2:00 - 3:00

This will be a very exciting day for all
