June Title I Workshops for Parents

Parents Don’t Wait…Enroll Today!

All three workshops will be from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. and a free spaghetti dinner is included, along with free child care, if needed. Because education doesn’t stop when the dismissal bell rings, La Paloma is offering these workshops to help parents foster a love of learning in their child and reinforce at home what has been learned in school.

Let’s go Camp-ing!

Parents, school is almost out. What will your children do all day? Research has shown that if students don’t have academic stimulation over the summer, they return to school one month academically behind.

Helping children cope with change

News flash: We’re almost at the end of another school year! As if anyone needing reminding, right? Our school is busy wrapping up lesson plans and planning graduation ceremonies. At such a busy time, it’s easy to overlook a child who might be struggling with the emotions that often come at the end of a school year.

Show some love to your library!

Have you been to the library lately? The teachers and staff here at Heritage have been focused lately on the importance of preparing for AIMS testing as well as honing students’ skills in math and reading. This can extend to non-school hours, too! Local libraries are a great resource for parents and students in both regards.

‘Every Day Counts’ in school

We are in the midst of our best weather of the year and summer vacation is just around the corner. Though the school year is coming to a close, we wanted to remind parents that attendance in these last few weeks are just as important as they are at the beginning of the year.

Munching on math

AIMS – yes, it’s that time of year again. Even though this is the last year that AIMS tests will be given in our schools, students still need to be fully prepared. One of the best things you can do is make sure your student is well-rested and has a good breakfast on testing days.

Headed into testing season

It’s hard to believe that March is already here, with spring officially just around the corner. For schools, that means testing season! In about a month, we will be giving AIMS tests to our students for the last time. Next school year, a new test will be given that’s designed to show how well students have learned new “Career and Career Ready Standards,” which used to be called “Common Core.”

What about that “second R” – writing?

This month, we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming members of our community, community leaders and personalities as well as family members for “Love of Reading Week.” It’s always a thrill to see a student connect with a book reader and discover a whole new world. But what about that “second R” in the “Reading, ’Riting and ’Rithmetic” – writing?
