Principal’s Message

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  I am very excited for the start of the new school year!  It has been an honor and privilege for me to serve the Heaton Community for the past 16 years especially the past three years as the principal.  

    Heaton is a wonderful school that has a fantastic student body and fabulous staff dedicated to helping your child achieve success. 

    Each year, we have a theme to help guide us in our work.  Our theme this year, “Together, We Are One” was chosen as a reminder to all of us that when we learn, work, and play together, we are stronger together and can accomplish so much more.   This year, more than any other year, I feel that this is so true. This year, we will finalize our work to become an AVID National Demonstration School.   This will culminate in March. 

     Finally, with school starting soon, I wanted to ensure our families had the needed information to help prepare your child for the school year.   This news letter contains some information that will help you begin the school year.  Also, I send a phone call home every Sunday at 5PM with the upcoming week’s announcements.  Please make sure your phone number is up to date in Infinite Campus.  Also, the call script will be posted on our FB page and Web page.  

    Please read this newsletter thoroughly to ensure your child comes to school prepared beginning the first day.   Your help and support is greatly appreciated.  

    I am confident that this school year will be the very best!   Please feel free to call the school with questions or if you need assistance.

    I am looking forward to a great school year!
