Heather Park Evening Dance

Due to weather and the threat of a power outage we cancelled the dance that was scheduled for Friday November 15th. The dance has been rescheduled for Friday November 22nd from 7 to 9pm in the Multi-Purpose Room. This dance will be open to all students in Grades 4-7 who attend Heather Park. The cost of admission was $10 originally, but based on feedback we have reduced the cost to $8 per student, which will still also include a drink. If students have already paid $10 they will be refunded $2 the night of the dance. Students from other schools and students not in Grades 4-7 will not be admitted. You may pre-pay at the office, or pay at the door the night of the dance. Come out and have some fun, enjoy the DJ, visit the concession, and win some prizes!

Explorations

This Thursday is the last day of Round 1 of our Explorations program. The Free Press will be at the school to find out about the program. As this week ends Round 1, Exploration Report Cards will be coming home next week on November 28th. Please watch for these.

Family Fun Night Fundraiser

The Family Fun Night Fundraiser for the Quebec Trip was a huge success! Many students and their families came to the event to go fishing, race cars, bowl, throw wet sponges at the Principal, and more! Thank you to everyone who organized and attended.

Pizza Day

The PAC will be serving pizza for the School Lunch program on Friday November 22nd. For $2.00 per slice students may purchase pepperoni, Hawaiian, or cheese pizza, to a maximum of two slices. No pre-orders will be done; students will just come and purchase their pizza on the November 22nd.

PAC Meeting

The next Heather Park PAC Meeting is November 20th at 6:45pm. Come out and meet School Board Trustee- Brenda Hooker and ask any questions you have about the School District #57 Board of Trustees. Also at the meeting we will be having a Principal and Teacher’s Forum where it is your chance to ask Steve Fleck and Tanya Goodwin and Rebeca Dougherty any questions you might have about the school, curriculum, or anything else that you have been wanting to ask or discuss.

A THANK YOU TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WHO SPENT TIME IN THE SCHOOL THIS MONTH. YOUR TIME AND ENERGY MAKES A DIFFERENCE!!
