Hello Friends!

What a fabulous year we have had at Blue Heron Elementary School!

We welcomed our staff back in August by reminding them what Superheroes they all were. I have enjoyed getting to know our teachers, support staff and students. We have an amazing PTA here (and there is STILL room for you to become part of that amazing group.) We work with some of the greatest kids in the entire district. Parents and families send their kids ready to learn and we are grateful to have a part in their academic journey.

We were able to do some very fun learning together such as 3rd grade Market Day and 5th grade Young Ameritowne. Our 6th graders did some excellent bonding while participating in the experiential learning at Outdoor Lab. Lots of students participated in our optional enrichment clubs such as Kidstage, Choir, Golf Squad, Club Amigos, Chess and Lego clubs, Peer Mentors, and others. We had lots of dads, grandpas, uncles and other men spend time with us as WATCH D.O.G. Dads. We participated in several community service projects such as the Hygiene Drive with the Jeffco Foundation and the penny drive sponsored by a two of our 5th grade students;  the school contributed over $1,000 to the National Sports Center for the Disabled through this week long penny drive.

At Blue Heron, we believe what Richard DuFour says: …”The fundamental purpose of school is learning, not teaching.” And we know that learning depends upon good teaching so we worked as a building to become stronger teachers of Literacy -- both Reading and Writing.

We are excited as we wind up this school year and begin to look forward to the 17-18 School year. If you are already a BHE family, thank you for a very successful year. If you are thinking about becoming a Blue Heron Elementary family, you will not find a better school than this one. I count it as a blessing to be the leader of this amazing place!

Sincerely,
