Good Evening Heaton Families.
This is Jayme Cardinal-Principal at Heaton. I am calling with announcements for the week February 27 through March 3rd.
Our overall average for attendance for this past week was 90.4% Our 6th grade averaged 91.4% for the week, 7th grade was at 92.02%, while the 8th grade was at 87.3%. As I said before, the numbers for 8th grade are concerning. Again, the connection between attendance, grades and eventually graduation from High School are all linked. To give you an idea of actual number, this week alone, each day, 30 students missed school each day in 8th grade.
Mid Terms will be sent home with students tomorrow. They will be passed out during 7th hour. Please ask your child to see their mid term. The 3rd quarter ends March 31st the week following Spring Break.
I want to send a GIANT thank you to the Heaton Family community for the level of participation in the Pennies for Patience Campaign our Student Council sponsored the past two week. Our goal was $600. By the end the Heaton community raised 1,693.20!!!!!! It was overwhelming to see the positive response this. There was a tie between Mrs. Andrada’s and Mrs. Massaro’s ASAP class, who will be receiving a lunch from Olive Garden. I also wanted to recognize Mrs. Reeves’, Mrs. Hoffman’s, Mr. Bustillos’ and Mrs. Todd’s ASAP classes for bringing in more than $100 per class. Thank you to EVERYONE for your support and response to this Kindness Project.
Speaking of Kindness, we are launching our Kindness Campaign for the month of March beginning this Wednesday. We will challenging students to do kind acts daily. Please see the Kindness Campaign Calendar on line for the daily challenges.
As a reminder, we will begin serving breakfast during 1st hour beginning this Wednesday, March 1st. While students are not required to eat we want to make it easier and more accessible for students to eat in the morning.
8th grade parents. South High School is hosting their parent night on Monday, February 27 at 6PM.
If your child is interested in playing soccer for the spring season, the Rangers’ coaches will be having a meeting on Wednesday, March 1st at 5:30PM in the Heaton Media Center.
Congratulations to our Wrestlers this past week. They finished their season 4th overall this past week! Good luck to our Girls Basketball teams this week as they head into the tournament. The Varsity team will play on Monday at Corwin vs Corwin at 5:30PM. The JV team will play on Wednesday, March 1st against Roncalli at Roncalli at 5:30PM. Good Luck Girls!
