Dear Heim Families:
February is a short, yet very busy month for Heim Elementary. Students have settled down and gotten back into the routine of school. It’s hard to believe that this month we will already be celebrating our 100th day of school!
At Heim Elementary School, we recognize the important contributions parents make towards their child’s success in school. We want to thank everyone for your continued support of our students, teachers, and school as we collectively strive to provide optimal opportunities for learning each and every day. We also want to thank our families for your continued diligence in making sure your child arrives to school on time and well prepared for learning each day. In addition, please continue to be mindful that our students’ academic day continues until dismissal each afternoon. It is very important that students are not dismissed early unless an unavoidable appointment or emergency is involved as valuable instruction from the teacher is missed.
There will be no March Parent/Teacher Conferences this year. You may still request a meeting or phone call with your child’s teacher if you are having concerns. Please contact the teacher directly to make arrangements.
The Board of Education is currently working on the 2018-2019 district budget with Dr. Martzloff and the district administrators. This is a lengthy process and much careful thought and planning goes into it. We are extremely fortunate to have a Board of Education that is supportive of programs that benefit our students, while remaining financially prudent.
The last day before Winter break will be February 16th. School will be open again on February 26th. Have a safe and wonderful winter break!
As always, thank you for supporting the wonderful teaching and learning that is taking place here at Heim!
Mrs. Bonnie L. Stafford
Heim Elementary School
