Heritage Book Fair To Be Held on October 12-25

The online fair will start October 12 and end October 25. Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles can all access it. Those orders will be delivered to the school to be given to students. They typically will arrive within a few days of being ordered or the week after the fair is over.

EWallet is another great feature where parents can put money on an account for their child to use at the fair. This will help eliminate lost money and set a budget. When the money is put on the account, the student will have access to it almost immediately. Whatever is not used, will go back into the parent's bank account after the fair is over. Parents can send a print out with the student or the book fair staff can look up the student's name. They can start putting money in the accounts today, October 3. Also, checks and cards from students will not be accepted this year. Parents may pay cash or with a card when they come.

The actual school fair will run October 21-25. Parents may come to the fair on the same day as their approved lunch day (Last names: Tues. A-I, Wed. J-R, Thurs. S-Z). Students will come with their classes on a specified day. I will attach a schedule. If the student was absent on their scheduled day, I will allow them to come on Friday. We will also be open on Thursday evening, October 24, from 5:30-6:30pm and I am checking if I can allow parents during the Student of the Month event on Friday morning.

LPISD Students Issued ID Badges

LPISD is implementing a new student ID badge system at all elementary schools. Each student will be receiving a student ID card and lanyard that will need to be worn to and from school. The students will be using these ID cards to travel on the school bus, check out books in the library, to use in the cafeteria if purchasing breakfast or lunch and for general identification purposes while on campus. Please remind your child to wear it to school each day. Thank you for helping us make safety a priority.

Student Identification (ID) Badge Requirements

The district provides each student with an identification badge that must be worn at all times. Student badges are encrypted with student identification information.

If the student should lose the badge, a new one must be purchased for $5.00. Campus administration can elect to take disciplinary action for failure to wear the ID badge, following the LPISD District Code of Conduct.

Heritage October Newsletter is Available Now!

Heritage Hawks are here and on time!
It is so important for our students to be at school and arrive on time. Some feel rushed when they arrive after the 8:10 bell. Please drop off by the gym and not at the front of the school before 8:10. The tardy bell rings at 8:10. Please help us achieve our goal of NO tardies and help our Hawks start off the day right! Remember they are absent after 9:30.
Build a strong bond with your child’s teacher
Your child’s teacher will be a significant person in his/her life this year. So it’s a good idea for the two of you to build a strong bond. That way, you can work together, share information and head off any problems that may come up. Share information. There may be things you want the teacher to know. Changes at home (even the birth of a baby) can affect children. So write a note, send an email or ask if the teacher can call you to talk. The more she/he understands about your child, the more the teacher will be able to help. Let your child know you respect his/her teacher. Your attitude will affect your child’s behavior in class.
Tips for Homework
· Establish a homework time.
· Insist that homework time happen every day.
· Ask your child questions about the homework.
· Don’t ever do his/her work for him or her.
Approaching Parent–Teacher Conferences
• A two-way conversation. The parent–teacher conference is an opportunity for teachers and parents to learn from each other.
• Emphasis on learning. You can make the most of parent–teacher conferences, and other forms of family involvement, by “linking them to learning.” This means bringing events and communication back to a discussion of strategies to support student learning. Teachers can arm parents with knowledge and suggestions for how to help their children learn.
• Opportunities and challenges. We all need praise and constructive criticism to grow. All parents are proud of their children and need to hear about their strengths as well as their challenges from you. This helps show parents and teachers value the unique strengths of their children and have high expectations for their ability to succeed in school and in life. From Harvard Family Reasearch Project.
