Dear 3-4 families,
Happy fall! We had a great first few weeks of school at HEDP, working hard on silhouette self-portraits, sharing about our summers, and getting to know our new students. Everybody wrote letters to themselves that no one else will read about hopes and goals for the school year, which we will give back in June.
Throughout October, we will begin to meet with each student individually to come up with a goal for this year to be worked toward at extended day. In the past, we have seen goals that are skill-related, such as working on writing skills, as well as more specific ones, like leaning how glow in the dark works. We can’t wait to see what our students have in mind!
We are lucky to have Paul join our team as an assistant teacher. Paul is a previous Heath student himself, and is glad to be back in the Heath school community!
As the weather gets cooler, please remember to send warm layers. We will spend time outside every day. Also, please encourage your child to bring an independent reading book for homework time. Thanks!
