Heights PTA welcomes you and your incoming Wee Wildcat to our school! We know that sending your child to Kindergarten can feel overwhelming and worrisome to kids and parents. To help ward off those worries, Heights PTA created a calendar of Wee Wildcats Events to familiarize prospective Heights families with our school and our community.
Our first event, “School Tour and Music Time” on January 23 at 11:45 a.m. will treat your family to a tour of the school and a music session with Ms. Spoon, our wonderful music teacher.

RISD is surveying parents, students and teachers about the use of technology in education. You can help by taking 5-10 minutes to complete the survey. Your input is very important for instructional technology planning at RISD. There are no right or wrong answers to the survey questions, and everyone will have a different set of responses, depending on their experiences. All survey responses will be kept confidential.

Understanding Differences is a disability awareness program designed to help students understand the differences in others by enabling them to experience what it is like to "walk in their shoes”.

We need volunteers to help! Please sign up to help here.
