First grade huskies started their gardening season by planting lettuce starts on a sunny spring day this week! There was lots of laughing, learning and getting hands dirty in our beautiful school garden! We look forward to being able to serve the lettuce in our school cafeteria on Rainbow Day. The lettuce beds are watered, tucked in, and ready for this week's snow. Thank you Garden to Table!
Heatherwood Elementary’s mission is to educate students to be respectful, responsible citizens who persevere through challenges and who proudly and peacefully contribute, both intellectually and emotionally, to make the world a better place.

There are a number of ways to volunteer so please check the opportunities at Helpatschool.com. Help the Heatherwood PTO plan, coordinate and support our upcoming PTO activities. Here are two needs:
- Yearbook Co-coordinator. This person would partner with our current editor for one year. This would be your hear to learn all about the yearbook and then take it on in 2022-23.
- Heather Heatherwood Planning Committee: We're planning to have our annual Heather Heatherwood fun run in May to wrap up the school year. Join a group of awesome volunteers who are starting to plan this great event.
Our first ever "Heatherwood Drawn Together" Winter Windows event was a huge success! It was good to gather family and friends to paint windows of Winter Traditions and Togetherness. We had so much fun that we're going to do it again in the spring! We will be doing the window painting on Saturday, May 7, from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm. More details to come after spring break. Mark your calendars for lots of painting fun! Sign up on HelpatSchools to help with a shift.
As we plan for our 22-23 school year it is important that our prospective kindergarten students register here. Help us "Draw Together" for Heatherwood by sharing this information with your neighbors and friends as we anticipate our staffing needs. A Kindergarten Kickoff Meeting for new families will be held at the school on May 11 at 5:00 pm. More details to come. Call us at 720-561-6900 for more info.
Breakfast and lunch continue to be available at no cost for all BVSD students. No paperwork or sign up is required.
