Highly engaging magician and comedian James Wand encouraged Heights students to make our school a bully-free zone through his Operation Bully Free program. In between squeals of laughter, students learned how to identify bullying and how to help stop it: 1) If you find yourself confronted by a bully, do your best to walk away with you head held up high; 2) If you or a friend are being bullied, you need to let a teacher know so they can help; and 3) Create a community of fantastic friends that all look out for one another and encourage a community of kindness. All great messages to remember as we move forward into the school year. Thank you Mr. Wand!

Fathers and Father-figures, on Thursday, 9/14 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm we will be having our 1st annual ‘Dads and Kids’ Pizza Night at our school. You will meet here at the school cafeteria at 6:00 pm for FREE pizza and drinks. At (6:30) we will have a presentation about our WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) Program. WATCH D.O.G.S.® is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.
In order to participate, please RSVP to Jason Green at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we have an accurate head count for the food. See you there!
Thank you to everyone that was able to come to our first Saturday work day of the year on August 12th. We had a great turn out and we got a lot done. We pulled lots and lots of weeds and spent plants and cleaned out the flower patches.
Our next Saturday Morning Garden Work Day will be on Saturday, September 23, from 9:00-11:00 am. Our main task on this day will be the creation of multiple signs for decorating our gardens. Any kids that come are invited to help paint but we will need adult supervision to control any potential mess.
