Each year Red Ribbon Week provides us with an opportunity to renew our commitment to a healthy and drug-free lifestyle, and show our dedication to education and prevention efforts in our school and community.

At Heron School, October is officially “WALKTOBER”!
Start the month off right by participating in Heron’s Walk to School Day Party this Friday, October 7th before school. There will be a dance party and a free farmer’s market style breakfast for all participating students and their families.
Students participate in Walktober by walking to and from school in October as many times as possible. Track each time you walk on your WALKTOBER tracking sheet to earn prizes! Walking to school can also include riding a bike, using a scooter or skating. If you live too far away to walk from home, park at least 3 blocks away and walk the rest. Or join a Walking School Bus on Wednesday mornings.
Turn in your completed tracking sheet by October 17th and November 1st, and the number of times you walked will determine what prizes you earn. The class with the most completed tracking sheets will win a class prize.
The Student Leadership Snack Bar will be open during the following home games:
Come out after school for some slushies, candy, chips, and soda. The Snack Bar will be located in front of G-7 (Ms. Smith’s room). Hope to see you there!
The federal government’s “Every Kid in a Park” program offers 4th-graders a free yearlong pass to all national parks, lands and waters. Students can sign up for the passes individually or teachers can request one for each 4th-grader in their class. The pass is valid for the 2016-17 school year and grants free entry for all children under 16 and up to three adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks) at more than 2,000 federally managed sites. It does not cover ancillary fees, such as for parking, camping, boats or tours. Please visit “Every Kid in a Park” for more information.
Please join us!
