Weekly Call Script- September 18- 22

Post date: Sep 18, 2017 3:54:27 PM

Good Evening Heaton Families,

This is Jayme Cardinal, Principal at Heaton calling with announcements for the week of September 18th through September 22nd.

    1. This past week, our overall average percentage was 91%. 6th grade was 94%, 7th grade was 89% and 8th grade was 91%. September is National Attendance Awareness Month. We continue to give away prizes on Friday to students who have been in full attendance all week. We will continue to do this for the month of September. As I mentioned last week, I will be reporting attendance percentages by grade each week. Attendance in school is critical. As I have reported before, students lose out on opportunities to learn when they are not in school. Our community advocate, counselors, and administrative team will be working with families this year to ensure students are in school. Please note that we take the Colorado Attendance Compulsory Laws seriously.

    2. This is the 5th week of school for the 1st nine week. Normally, mid-term grade reports would go out this week, however due to the first two weeks of school having limited work and district testing, we will send home midterms next Monday, September 25th.

    3. Our “Guadalupe Rodriguez Care and Share Food Pantry” will be open again this Friday from 1-2:15PM. The pantry offers non perishable items and all families are welcome to utilize the pantry. We will have fresh fruits/vegetables this week. Please take advantage of this opportunity! No appointment is necessary. Just drop by from 1PM to 2:15 PM

    4. This Wednesday, students in 7th grade will be tested for Vision and Hearing. Nurses will notify you if there is a concern about your child’s vision or hearing.

    5. All students will also be taking the Colorado Healthy Kid Survey this week. If you have any questions about the survey, please let me know.

    6. Good luck to our Volleyball, Football, Soccer and Cross Country Teams this week. You can find the dates and times of games on our web page calendar or through our APP, which is connected to our google calendar.
