Principal Pederson’s Primary Points

      Another month has passed and we are now ready for winter.  Since my last newsletter, New Heights has hosted Parent/Teacher Conferences, Turkey Bingo, and the Book Fair all while gaining another month’s worth of knowledge.

      Turkey Bingo was again a huge success!!  The funds gathered from that evening help support numerous student centered projects through the Elementary PTO organization. Thanks to Kaylen Bakke, Rachel Benson and Jen Maixner and to all those who helped with the event. A special Thanks! To the Meulebroecks for donating the ginormous turkey for game 11!! I hope those who won something that evening are enjoying their prize.  For those that didn’t win anything – come back next year and try again.  Thank you all for supporting New Heights.

      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 if off at New Heights.
      Fire Up Your Feet will continue through Dec. 20.  Drop off your child at Our Savior’s Lutheran for an escort to New Heights.

      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 will be entertained on Dec. 2 by the 2nd graders. Snoozy Snowflake will be presented. Please watch for info on your child’s performance times.

     At this time in the school year we are hopeful that your child has established independence with the morning routines.  He/she should know the morning expectations and be able to carry those out without parent assistance. Please drop your child off and have them come in to school independently.

Thanks to those who donated winter clothing at Turkey Bingo!
