Welcome to New Heights Elementary
New Heights educates students in Kindergarten, First and Second grade. All students are involved in Music, Library and Phy. Ed., along with robust curriculums of literacy and math. Students are also treated to Art instruction throughout the year. There are currently 21 sections of students and classroom teachers. There are also special educators, counselors, and interventionists to serve our students. Mrs. Pederson is the Principal and Ms. Dunn is the Assistant Principal. New Heights is proud of the community of learners that attend here. We value cooperating with parents and the community to empower all students to become responsible lifelong learners.

"Fire Up Your Feet" Fridays
Safe Kids and New Heights have partnered up over the last two school years to provide an opportunity for students to walk to school one day a week. Parents/caregivers can drop their student(s) off in the parking lot of Our Savior's Lutheran Church; staff and volunteers from Safe Kids as well as East Grand Forks Police Officers meet elementary students and walk with them to New Heights as a "walking school bus".
We will kick off the 2017 spring program on Friday, March 31st and continue through May 12th. This year we are excited to announce that athletes from Senior High will be volunteering to help walk with the kids!
Students can be dropped off at 7:45 am and groups leave the church parking lot every 5-8 minutes. The last group departs prior to the start of school at 8:20 am. Should there be issues with poor weather the morning of the event, we will cancel the walk. Safe Kids staff and volunteers will be present every Friday. You are welcome to join your student on their walk to school!
