Speaking of Teacher Appreciation…

By kimberly

The Heritage PTC is having a meeting on Monday, April 4th from 7-8pm at the Homer Elementary and Jr. High.  Two items on the agenda are Teacher Appreciation Week, and Inflatables Day.  The PTC is a great way for parents to get involved in our school, and if you have any questions, please contact me!  I try to go to every meeting, even if I have to bring all the littles with me (although for the sake of everyone at the meeting- I hope they will not be joining us on the 4th!)

Ice Cream Day is Friday, April 1st.  The PTC will hand out ice cream to students after lunch, as a “job well done” on their recent high-stakes state mandated testing.  It is really fun to hand the treats out to the students, and I was lucky to get to volunteer to do this last year.  While I am not of fan of giving children sugar (says the lady to retails soda in her children’s store) it is a chance to add a little something extra to the school day, and to let the students know that the parents really appreciate their hard work and effort. Contact me if you would like more details about how you can help with Ice Cream Day.  I will forward you on to the co-presidents of our PTC.

I will save how I feel about the state standardized testing for another post.

In the meantime, enjoy this beautiful day!
