Spring is finally here and we got a lot done this week in the school garden: taming the vigorously growing weeds, planting more flower seeds, and planting vining plants for our two trellises. We are all excited to see the garden green up and burst with color as our first flowers start blooming. Garden Club planted multiple varieties of potatoes which should be ready just in time for the "Homegrown Heights Farmer's Market" in May.
Next Garden Work Day: Monday, March 19, 9:00 am - 11:00 am (more weeding, lots of leaves to be pulled from creek and pond, etc.)
Heights Kindergarten Roundup is on March 5th from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. This is one event you don’t want to miss! You’ll hear all about Heights, meet our fantastic teachers and learn all of the specifics you need to know about registering your students for their kindergarten year. Bring your Wee Wildcats - the kindergarten teachers have planned fun and educational activities to keep them entertained!
Parents of currently-enrolled students in grades K-11 can enroll their children online for the 2018-19 school year starting on February 26. Students new to RISD in 2018-19 will not be able to enroll online and should contact Heights Elementary for registration information.
A new online enrollment system, PowerSchool / InfoSnap, is being introduced this year and parents will no longer use Focus to enroll students. Parents of currently enrolled students will be sent a letter and email with information for re-enrolling online. Parents unable to enroll online may still enroll using paper forms.

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.
On February 26th from 1:45 - 2:30 p.m. Heights PTA welcomes you and your Wee Wildcat to tour the classrooms and meet our kindergarten teachers Mrs. Greenwood, Ms. Carranza, and Mr. Alonzo. They will also spend some time participating in activities in one of the kindergarten classrooms.

Did you know that William Shakespeare, the famous 16th century playwright, invented over 1700 new words, many of which are still in common use today? Our 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students learned this and much more at an outstanding performance on Thursday morning in the school cafeteria by actors from Shakespeare Dallas. While performing scenes from Shakespeare's famous comedy, A Midsummer's Night Dream, the actors also helped demystify Shakespearean language by explain the meaning of words and expressions used and how to better understand the scenes thorough the actors' expressions, body language and motions.
All attending students were also provided with a letter exchangeable for a free season pass for them and an accompanying adult to any of the 2018 Shakespeare in the Park performances. Thank you Shakespeare Dallas for a fun and educational performance!
Once again, Heights PTA wants to celebrate our wonderful teachers and thank them for the good work they are doing. We are organizing "Mardi Gras Teacher Lunch" for our teachers on February 13th. To sign up and bring a dish, please Click Here>>
