Principal Pederson’s Primary Points

      Another month has passed and we should be ready for winter to hit!  Since my last newsletter, students have taken the NWEA assessment which was a learning experience for all (teachers and parents). We are now gearing up for Parent/Teacher Conferences, Turkey Bingo, and Thanksgiving, all while gaining another month’s worth of knowledge.

      I look forward to sharing in many Parent/Teacher conferences. At New Heights we like to see every parent of every student at conferences. So, if you have not scheduled a conference on your child, please call to schedule one as soon as possible.

      Turkey Bingo is always a huge success!!  The funds gathered from that evening help support numerous student centered projects through the Elementary PTO organization.  Turkey Bingo would not succeed without your support at the event. Please plan to attend: Nov. 20.

      Students will be going outside most days. ALL students need to have a hat, mittens (no knit finger gloves), scarf, facemask, jacket, snow pants and boots for school everyday.  If your child doesn’t have the proper outdoor gear, they may have to stay on the basketball court area during recess time.  If you are unable to acquire the necessary gear – please call me at 773-0908.  I would be happy to assist you with this need.  If you have any gently-used winter outdoor wear, please drop off at New Heights.

      Reading with your child has numerous academic and emotional advantages. Every student at New Heights can engage with print.  Spend time with your child cuddled-up with a book.

      Please update your child’s storm home addresses and phone numbers.  This address must be in the city limits of East Grand Forks.  Call New Heights to update – 773-0908.

      We have had Safe Route to Schools conduct some education regarding safe drop-off and pick-up procedures. Also how to safely cross the streets surrounding New Heights.  Coffee at the Curb was held on Oct. 30.  Fire Up your Feet Fridays will begin on Nov. 7.  The Senior High Student Council and FCCLA members will be escorting your child to school when dropped off at the Our Saviors Lutheran church parking lot. Please visit your child about this information for reinforcement and practice.
