Heritage Primary Eblast
Heritage Primary Parents,
Hello! With the start of the New Year we often face the pressure of making resolutions. Each year I have the intent read and exercise more only for it to dwindle away the deeper I get into the year. What I really need to do is write down my goals and to post them in different areas so I don’t lose focus. I should also let my family and friends know my goals as well. The constant reminders and support from others would be motivating.
As your children enter the New Year it would be a great idea to sit down with them to come up with some goals. The goals can be school related or goals towards their personal activities and home life. Work with them on making their goals follow the SMART goal approach.
After they set their goals be there to support them and to help them achieve. Once they achieve their goal it is important to celebrate their success. The celebration is what will motivate them to set even more goals. One of my favorite things to do is to celebrate students and share the pride when they have reached a goal.
If your child does set a goal, have them share their goals with me when they see me out and about. You could even have them hand me their goals and how they plan to celebrate reaching them. I will work to also remind them what they are working towards when I see them and over the announcements. When we return I will share a few of my goals with the students as well.
Have a great New Year!
Dr. Gretchen Morrison

KEEPING OUR CHILDREN SAFE
We are asking for your help as you drive your child to school. We want ALL of our children to arrive to school and home safely.
*Slow down and be alert in our Heritage neighborhood and school zones.
*Take extra time to look for kids at intersections and on curbs.
*Enter and exit driveways, roadways and intersections slowly and carefully.
*Watch for children on or near roads in the morning and after schools hours.
*Reduce distractions inside your car to concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
*Stop behind the white line at crosswalks.
* Always stop for a school patrol officer or crossing guard holding up a stop sign.
For Those Walking/Biking to School
*Make sure your child has a safe route before allowing him or her to walk to
*Make sure sidewalks are clear of snow, if riding a bike.
*Ride your bike on the sidewalk,not in the street.
*Always cross at a crosswalk.
*Walk, don’t run, across the street.
*Make sure drivers see you before crossing in front of them.
A NOTE FROM THE NURSE
If your child has been sent home from school with a fever or for vomiting, please remember they cannot return until they are symptom free for 24 hours.

We are working on shoe tying in PE!! The students can earn a charm for their book bags and a spot on our Shoe Tie Wall of fame in the gym! Please feel free to use the method you are comfortable with, but we use the following method which has been very successful for all of our kiddos!
ALSO, Please remember to have your children wear proper shoes for PE! We love tennis shoes, which are the safest for all of our activities... If your child comes to PE without the proper shoes they will not be able to participate in the day's activities and will be given an alternate assignment.
Thanks so much for all of your help and support!

Visitor Cafe Guidelines
Parents and family members are welcome to visit their child at school during their lunch time. We do have limited space since we have a large population of students and ask to keep your group to a minimum when visiting. While you are visiting, please follow our HPE Visitor Cafe' Guidelines:
- You must have a visitor's badge issued prior to meeting your child in the cafe'.
- Only one friend is allowed to eat with your child in the commons area per visit.
- You may only bring food for your student. Please do not share with friends.
- Students need to return to the classroom when their classroom lunch period is over.
- All siblings are asked to remain seated and supervised at all times.
We appreciate your cooperation in helping us provide a safe and special opportunity to visit with our child. If these guidelines are not abided by, these privileges may be revoked at any time.
