HCR's Rosie Reader

Weekly Newsletter, December 19, 2021

Dear Highcroft Families

Happy Last Rosie Reader of 2021!

I wanted to let you know of a great opportunity I am being given to support me and Highcroft Ridge as we move into the second semester. Dr. Kelly Moreton, former principal of Barretts Elementary will be coaching and mentoring me, and present at HCR two days a week. I know coming into this job I have had a huge learning curve. While some aspects were within my wheelhouse, I have made mistakes. I know I have to learn to do and am excited to learn from a veteran educator.

Dr. Moreton is a retired principal from Barrett's Elementary in Parkway where she served for nine years. Previous to this experience she served as a principal in Valley Park and assistant principal at Oak Brook. She started her career as a teacher in various Rockwood schools. Dr. Moreton earned her Ed.D and Masters from Maryville University and BS. Ed from Eastern Illinois University. She currently supports administration and works adjunct at Fontbonne University.

Personally, Dr. Moreton is a wife and mother of two adult daughters, a grandson, and has one on the way. She lives in Parkway and loves to volunteer at DUO (a company for service and therapy dogs). She has a black lab that serves as a certified touch dog and reading dog. Dr. Moreton is a huge Cardinal baseball fan, loves to read, go on walks, travel, eat out, and is most recently into golf.

Highcroft Ridge Elementary and I are very lucky to have extra support and guidance from Dr. Moreton. I am personally thankful that I can continue to learn and grow as I strive to become the principal I know I can be so I can support our amazing students.

Voluntary Sharing of Student COVID - 19 Vaccinations

As a reminder, Parkway is asking parents to consider sharing vaccination records if their child is fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

Sharing proof of vaccination is entirely voluntary. Your child’s vaccination record will be kept confidential. If your child is vaccinated, please complete this voluntary form to share your record with our school. The form will ask for your child’s name, school, grade and will have a place where you can upload a photo/image of your child’s vaccination card. You will need to log into your personal Google/Gmail account or use your child’s Parkway Gmail account to complete the form.

Providing your vaccine information will help us measure vaccination rates within our school communities. If you have any questions

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Nurse Hubert at (314) 415-6410
