We are kicking off the 2019-2020 Honoring Our Heroes Essay program!

Honoring Our Heroes is a writing program that encourages students to discover, honor, and write about real-life heroes—role models displaying generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, gentleness, courage, or compassion. Students can recognize someone who has touched their lives directly: a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, or teacher. They can also honor a professional athlete, movie star, or other public figure if that person has made an impact on the student’s life through dedication, perseverance, or other characteristics and NOT because of their fame.

Honoring our Heroes is a great opportunity to celebrate a special someone who may not even know what a difference they are making in your student’s life! The program also aims to keep kids motivated to write during the holiday break and to enhance their abilities and confidence as writers.

The student entry form can be found on the PTA website. Entries are due by January 17th 2020.

Here is also a great scholarly article with tips for parents who wish to support their student writers. You can also download the file by visiting this address:

Parents, please complete the following surveys.

The next content acquisition process will include K-12 Health and PE, K-12 Visual Arts, K-12 General Music, Choral, Dance and Theatre, 6-12 Band and Orchestra, and 6-12 CTAE.

To ensure that parents have ample time to review resources in Fall 2019, we are beginning the process now with the distribution of a needs assessment.  Having this information early means we can schedule the Phase 1 committee to meet over the summer to conduct a standards alignment of potential resources in preparation for Phase 2 in September 2019.

We want to thank you for your support in ensuring we have the best content and resources available to our students and teachers as we move our district forward.
