"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."
We have created our new character education curriculum which centers around "Being Heroic". Our core values are to:
You will be seeing work centered around what it means to be a hero, who are some local heroes, and other hero related themes. Additionally, we will be recognizing HEROIC behavior at our monthly "Be HEROIC" assemblies.
Orientation will be held at HRPA on Wednesday, August 19 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Please click the button below to access the flier.
This is a mandatory school day where students and parents will get to meet their teachers, receive their Independent Study Packets, drop off school supplies, and sign important paperwork. But this is also an excellent opportunity to socialize with other HRPA families. We will have food trucks and several information booths, as well as spirit wear to purchase.
Independent Study Information Session:
Does Friday Work make you want to pull your hair out? Are you at a loss as to how to help your students with Independent Study? Then join us on Thursday, August 20 at 6pm for an information session that will cover this and much more.
Class lists will be posted and sent on Wednesday, August 5. We know everyone is excited to meet their new teachers!
Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge:
We are halfway through the summer, and you are doing a terrific job motivating your child to read!
This is a friendly reminder to keep encouraging your child to read every single day, even if it’s only for a few minutes. There are so many other summertime distractions that can often take the place of reading, but it’s important to stick with a reading routine. For every minute your child reads, he or she is strengthening his or her reading skills (and contributing to a new world record for summer reading!).
Our school is committed to making sure all of our students come back to school prepared, and reading every day can truly make a difference. If you’re looking for new books for your kids to read, check out Scholastic’s age-appropriate summer reading lists at scholastic.com/summer. You’ll find the best nonfiction, series books, and more. If your child forgot his or her summer reading username, please contact Stephanie Rogers directly or contact Scholastic at 1-800-SCHOLASTIC. Have a great rest of the summer!
Summer Work Days:
Our last summer work day is scheduled. If you have tools, are good at building things, are good at moving things or just want to help, WE NEED YOU!! I will provide snacks and beverages for all that attend.
