Welcome Back 2014-2015

Dear Parents,

It is truly my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin the 2014/2015 school year at Margaret Heath Elementary.  To our new families, I would like to welcome you to our family! 

I am extremely excited to continue working diligently with our parents and staff members to foster an atmosphere that promotes student learning.  I am committed to working collaboratively with you to ensure that we meet the needs of all students as we continue to implement the new common core state standards and focus on student achievement.  Working together as a team, we will move forward in our mission to nurture respectful, responsible, and resourceful learners who are collaborative problem solvers and effective communicators who think critically and creatively. 

I look forward to working with our dedicated staff, parents and students throughout the school year to ensure that our year is a successful one.  Parent involvement is extremely important; therefore, I encourage you to participate in events, volunteer at the school and/or become a member on one of our committees.  You will definitely have many opportunities to be involved as a parent, and I hope that you consider contributing to the overall success here at the school site!

Dear Parents,

As a reminder, all students will be required to report to school on the first day in uniform and adhere to our adopted uniform policy throughout the school year.  

Our uniform is as follows:

  • Khaki or navy blue pants, shorts and skirts
  • White, royal blue or navy blue collared shirts.  Polo shirts are the standard uniform shirt, however button down shirts are acceptable.
  • (Optional) Royal blue polo shirts with the school logo will be sold, but they are not required. 
  • On Fridays only, students will be allowed to wear jeans, but they must wear a Heath shirt (any Heath t-shirt).  Students may also wear their uniform shirt with their jeans on Fridays.
  • Hats and beanies are permitted, but only when extreme weather conditions are present; however, they must be removed when entering the classroom. 
  • We ask that students wear solid color sweaters, preferably navy blue, royal blue, or white.
  • We understand that coats can be difficult to find in a solid color, therefore, we are not asking that coats be worn in any particular color, print, or design. 
  • We will continue to sell shirts, sweaters, and jackets with our logo, but again, these will not be required.
  • In alignment with our school dress code, uniform shirts and pants must not be oversized or too tight. 

Wearing uniforms will provide our school with the following:

  • Prevent dress code issues
  • Decrease pressure that comes with fashion trends
  • Foster a community and emphasize membership
  • Convenient for parents

Please keep in mind that these standard uniforms can be purchased at most big chain stores like Target, Walmart, and Kmart at a reasonable price.  Our uniform vendor, Mary Fer will be on our campus again on Wednesday, August 6th from 9:00-11:00 am for your convenience. 

As always thank you for your cooperation!  Let’s begin preparing for another successful school year!
