Welcome Incoming 2020-2021 Kindergartners!

A warm welcome to our incoming Blue Heron Elementary kindergarten class! We are looking forward to getting to know you and continuing to welcome you to our community over the summer and coming years. A few notes about upcoming events and communication:

Registration

Watch for emails from the school about registration. You can also check the school’s website, they will be updating it in July. We will update this section with the 2020-21 info as soon as we receive it.

School Supplies

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 2020/21 school year here (seriously it’s wonderful not having to worry about finding all the supplies)  ORDER HERE BY MAY 27, 2020 FOR BEST PRICING AND FREE SHIPPING. Your student’s order will be in the classroom on our Meet and Greet Day, August 20th.

If you missed ordering an EduKit, you can find the school supply list here.

Rolling Start

We will update this section with the 2020-21 info as soon as we receive it.

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 teacher 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).

While we are at it, we really hope you join us in the PTA. We typically meet the 3rd Thursday of the month, but you don’t have to attend meetings to be in the PTA. You can pay your dues now online!

Social Media, Mailing List & Website

Check out our Facebook page or Instagram for a fun way to be in touch with the community! You’ll get everything you *need* to know via email. Facebook is just gravy. We also put all PTA events on the Facebook page to help keep you up-to-date on what is happening at the school.

We also have a PTA mailing list you can sign up for direct communication from us. Be sure to also bookmark our PTA website as it’s full of a lot of information on school events and fundraisers.
