Dear Heritage Families

June already? We cannot believe we have made it to the end of the school year. This year has given us so much joy, and we are so thankful you shared your children with us. Thank you for being a partner in your child's education, because without your support we would not have made the gains we did. We hope you have a fun-filled summer, where you can take some time to relax and recharge. Please take a minute to read through the information below, because there is a little something for everyone.

Have a wonderful summer!

Student Safety

As the last couple of weeks are here, we know a lot of you are signing out your children early for a variety of reasons. Please remember to ensure the safety and security of our students at Heritage Elementary we ask that if you are picking your child up early from school, you bring your identification card to the office when signing your child out. Our office staff will ask you to identify yourself and hold your ID card up to the window for verification. This will help us ensure you are a safe adult for one of our children. While we understand this procedure can be frustrating, especially if you have to go back to your car for your identification, we are doing this to keep everyone safe and secure. Thank you in advance for cooperating with this very important procedure.

MAP Results

We have completed our MAP testing for the year at Heritage. In the coming days you will receive a report of your child's progress on our spring benchmark, along with the scores your child obtained throughout the year. In looking at our scores we have seen students make growth at their own personal pace and achieve the goals they set for themselves at either the start of the year, or in January. Take a minute to talk with your child about their scores and see if they reached the goal they set for themselves this year.

What is Summer Slide?

“Summer slide,” “brain drain,” and “summer learning loss” all describe the phenomenon, and occurs when students “turn off their brains” during the summer months. "Learning loss" is the general umbrella term, of course, but it can attach itself to any specific discipline, like "summer reading loss," etc. To prevent summer slide with your child take the opportunity to continue reading during the summer months, join the library's summer reading program, keep up on IXL, and make everyday summer activities a mathematical journey. You can keep your child's skills sharp and ready for next year by doing one thing each day.
