I sincerely appreciate all the help and support you’ve provided throughout the school year. I hope that each of you can look back on the year and see that much growth has occurred with each of your children. I encourage each of you to continue learning throughout the summer. Visit the library together (, spend time reading good books together, get outside and explore the beautiful area we live in, make memories together. You’ve got amazing children, thank you for sharing them with Heritage Elementary!

Important Information! April 2017

Heritage Families,

We have many important events happening as the school year is winding down. I’ll try and keep you aware of everything, but if you have questions or need clarification, please ask!

  1. Grades 3~5 SAGE Testing: Our older students are participating in the SAGE. (WCSD resource regarding SAGE – CLICK HERE). I hope you’ll encourage your student to do their very best, help them get a good nights rest and eat a healthy breakfast. I look at our end of level assessments as a chance to show how much we’ve learned throughout the year, a celebration of our learning.
  2. Math & Literacy Night – April 20 @ 6pm – Come enjoy participating in math and literacy activities that you can do at home to keep on learning throughout summer. Dinner will be provided.
  3. 2017-18 Class Lists & Parent Input – I want to help everyone understand the process we use to put together fair, equitable, and compatible classes. In the coming weeks, I will ask teachers to work in grade-level teams and put together class lists for the upcoming year. I will ask teachers to:
    • Make every effort to place students in the best learning environment for their individual learning needs
    • Divide students in a fair and equitable way (boys/girls, academic ability, behavior, language needs, etc.)
    • Put students together who need to be together.
    • Split up students who shouldn’t be together.
    • Try to put students with a teacher who would be the best fit for each class.

    As you can imagine, meeting all of these goals is difficult. Our teachers have a unique perspective as the only individuals who see the students interact with their peers all day, 180 days of the year. Additionally, the professional-learning-community structure we use at Heritage helps guarantee the curriculum experience in whichever classroom students find themselves.

    I sincerely hope parents will trust us to put classes together for next year in the best way possible. It’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly, and we carry it out with the best interest of each child at heart. We have an extraordinary teacher in each classroom, and I feel very confident our school-wide structures will provide a guaranteed and viable curriculum in each class.

    From now until April 28 the “Parent Input Form” will be available in our office. Please stop by the office and pick one up if you so desire. The form allows parental input to be considered in the process of class placement for the upcoming school year. The bottom line is this, your child’s current classroom teacher will work to place each child in the best situation possible, your input will be considered and used to make the best class placement decision possible for each child.

Thanks again for your support of our school please contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns!

Adam Baker ~ Principal | 435-628-4427 |

Looking Ahead:

  • April 12 – 3rd Grade Tuacahn Field Trip & Performance 6:30pm

White Ribbon Week – March 6~10

Heritage Families,

We want to protect our kids from online dangers. It’s a tough job! When kids recognize threats and know exactly what to do, they are capable of making healthy choices for themselves.

March 6~10 is our White Ribbon Week at Heritage, our goal is to teach our students to be safe and smart with media and technology. Our theme, “I’ve Got the Power” promotes personal power at every age. It encourages kids to take an active role in what they view or do online.

Each day your child will earn a “Power Boost”

  • I have the power to not view embarrassing pictures or share hurtful words
  • I have the power to turn it off
  • I have the power to tell a trusted adult if something doesn’t feel right
  • I have the power to ask before I download
  • I have the power to help my friends make safe choices online

We will ask your child to teach these Power Boosts to you. Your discussions together are key. Please help your child find ways to apply these principles in your home. Empowerment and confidence will naturally spill into other areas of your child’s life. Together you can make a plan to use technology safely for learning and fun.

— Heritage White Ribbon Week Committee

**Special Parent Meeting**

Please join us for an important parent meeting. A licensed counselor will share information and resources to help you protect your kids online.

Wendesday, March 1st @ 7 p.m. (English)
Thursday, March 2nd @ 7 p.m. (Spanish)

Heritage Heads Up – Feb 13, 2017

Hello Heritage Parents,

I just wanted to send out a quick reminder about a couple of things happening at Heritage. 

First, Thanks to each of you and our outstanding PTA for our Family Week activities. It was very enjoyable to see so many of you here during our Parent Picnic and Dads and Donuts. I really appreciate our PTA and all they do to help make Heritage a GREAT School.

Next up, SEP week – going on now! Remember our school will dismiss each day at 1:15 (No Kindergarten on Mon or Tue). I hope each of you are planning to visit with your child’s teacher to receive an update on academic progress as well as set some goals for the remainder of the school year. While you are here stop by the library for the BOGO Book Fair. Also, make sure you check the lost and found tables for coats and jackets, we’ve had a lot that have been left here at school that we’d like to return to their owner.

Finally, the WCSD recently sent out a parent survey. Please take a moment to fill this out (ENGLISH Survey / SPANISH Survey). If you have other feedback regarding our school and anything we can work to improve, please contact me directly!

Thanks for your continued support, I look forward to seeing each of you this week during our SEP Conferences!

Outside Tables – Thanks PTA!

We have a new addition to the playground!!

Thanks to the Heritage PTA and a few generous donors, we were able to add four industrial-strength picnic tables to the playground behind the lunch room. These tables will be used as an incentive for classes with good behavior in the lunchroom. They will earn the privilege of eating outside on Fridays.

They will also be used by individual classes for outdoor or messy projects and Mr. Baker has already reported them being used by the kids during recesses just for fun!

Special thanks and acknowledgement to Tuacahn Center for the Arts, McArthur Welding, Cache Valley Bank, and Wilkinson Electric for their help in making these bright blue Heritage tables possible!

We are so grateful for our community support and hope you can take a minute to come check out our new addition and thank our sponsors personally if you get a chance.
