Principal’s Corner

Welcome to Heron School! This is our 6th year of implementing the Responsive Classroom approach, which aligns our practices in building community, designing active learning experiences, and implementing responsive discipline practices. We are a STEAM-focused school, so we are continually striving to integrate meaningful experiences for our students in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. 

I’m also grateful for our wonderful Heron teachers and staff, who work together to create an environment each day that brings joyful learning and academic achievement to all students. Our teachers are highly collaborative, and work together to ensure each child’s success. As your Principal, nothing brings me more joy than when you proudly show me your writing, your science experiments, your musical and theater performances, your technology projects, your presentations, your research, your designs, the list goes on and on. You remind me that we are lifelong learners; if we keep learning, we keep growing. 

Be sure to say “Hi” when you see me on campus or around the neighborhood! 

For the Love of Learning, 
Principal Amy Whitten
