Weekly Call Script- September 4-8

Post date: Sep 4, 2017 9:10:33 PM

Good Evening Heaton Families,

This is Jayme Cardinal, Principal at Heaton calling with announcements for the week of September 4th through September 8th.

    1. There is no school on Monday, September 4th due to the Labor Day Holiday.

    2. Tuesday, from 4-6PM, Heaton will be hosting a Teacher Meet and Greet. This is an opportunities for students and their families to visit and tour the school and meet teachers. This year we will also have several outside agencies from Catholic Charities, Health Solution and SRDA to provide resources to families. We will also have information about our Care and Share Food Pantry that will open this Friday, September 8th. The pantry will be open on Fridays only from 1-2:15. Fresh vegetables and fruits will be available on the third Friday of every month.

    3. September is National Attendance Awareness Month. Beginning next week, I will begin reporting our attendance numbers as I did all last year. 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. Because it is National Attendance Awareness Month, we will be rewarding students through different drawings for prizes that we will do each week during the month of September.

    4. We have concluded making schedule changes. Thank you for your patience while worked to get students the right classes. It is possible schedule changes could occur in the future based on need or administrative decision. Parents will always be contacted if a schedule change occurs.

    5. Good luck to our Football, Volleyball and Softball teams this week. Also, good luck to our Cross Country team. They have their first meet 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.
