The Boulder Rural Fire Department came to visit Heatherwood on October 4 for National Fire Prevention Week! Thank you firefighters for teaching us about fire safety. Here is a flyer with tips to review with your students.
Our photographer will be back on Thursday, October 28, for picture retake day. Students will receive their photos from September sometime next week (10/18-10/23) so that families will have ample time to decide whether to get their pictures taken again.
Check this link weekly for our Husky Hype newsletter to Heatherwood families, full of principal announcements, school news, volunteer opportunities and more!
Virtual fall conferences are October 19, 20 and 21 (Tuesday-Thursday) from 4:00-7:00 pm. Asking questions to you child's teacher during parent-teacher conferences and following a report card is one of the best ways to partner with them, deepen your understanding of how to best support your child, and make the conversation meaningful for you. See the BVSD website here for some ideas of questions to ask your child's teacher.
Looking for a way to be involved in the school? BVSD is hiring for these three positions at Heatherwood. Please help us spread the word!
