It is Time to Reunite Heatherwood!

This week marks the start of our Heatherwood Reunited campaign! The purpose of Heatherwood Reunited is to put energy toward bringing our community back In Person for the 21-22 school year. We need all current students, Home Learners, lost huskies and new incoming kindergarten pubs to reunite In Person!

How can you help?

  • Prepare your PK-4th grade students to return In Person to Heatherwood (current registered students will automatically be registered to return In Person).
  • Support neighbors and friends to register their incoming Kindergartner now!
  • Reach out to families who left Heatherwood and remind them that now is the time to register and reunite!

Now is the time to move from surviving to thriving, let's help get Heatherwood Reunited!

What's offered next year? See this link for more information.

Annual Theme Book: The Proudest Blue

We are delighted to introduce our annual theme book: The Proudest Blue by Ibthaj Muhammad. Watch this read-aloud video and think about these life lessons about PRIDE,  our yearly theme: 

  • The hijab is really important to celebrate for two sisters, Asiya and Faizah, and their family. We all have special things that may be related to our culture, religion or ethnicity that we can celebrate.
  • Asiya and Faizah are strong like the color blue, like the ocean. We can celebrate with each other and be proud of who we are, together. We are the proudest blue too!
