The PTA works with EduKit to make shopping for school supplies easy! No searching for out of stock items or picking up extra items you don’t need (thus saving you money!) You can get everything you need in one place using EduKit! You can find the full Blue Heron supply list for the 2019/20 school year here. ORDER BY MAY 28, 2019 FOR BEST PRICING AND FREE SHIPPING. Your student’s order will be in the classroom on our Meet and Greet Day, August 16.
If you missed ordering an EduKit, you can find the school supply list here.
The beginning of this journey can be stressful and somewhat overwhelming for the little ones; having a rolling start, helps them transition into the more rigorous and structured learning environment that comes with the kindergarten classroom. Read more about the rolling start date here.
Room Parent & Volunteering
Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the most important factors in raising student self-esteem and academic achievement. Moreover, most experts agree that parental involvement should go beyond attendance at teacher conferences and open house. We realize, however, that each of our families is unique – with its own priorities, needs, talents, and time constraints — and so we try to provide as many different kinds of opportunities for parental involvement as possible. During Back to School night your treacher will ask you to fill out the contact form for the PTA and indicate if you would like to become a room parent. Don’t worry we have a handbook and checklist to help you through the process. Keep in mind if you choose not to provide an email address, you may not receive important classroom party or event information from the Room Parent(s).
