Student, Parent and Community Involvement

Four Heroes staff members and parents continue to work closely together to improve student achievement in reading, mathematics, and school climate, to provide family services and support, increase parents' skills, connect families with others and to assist teachers in the classroom. We continue to strive to help all of our students succeed in the school which will ultimately place them in a position to be successful in life.

The Four Heroes staff continues to work closely with our parent group to sustain the momentum that has been gained with volunteers in classes, out of classes, at PTO events, with the Watch D.O.G.S. program, and with the CISL after school program. Parents, mentors and community member involvement continues to be a highly valued assets as we welcome more and more caring adults into our wonderful school.

Four Heroes PTO

PTO sponsors fund raisers, supports filed trips, assemblies, field days, Goal Celebrations, and family nights throughout the year for students. They worked closely with the Watch D.O.G.S. this year.

Parents/Family Events

Four Heroes held two conferences focused on academics during the year. The purpose of these events provided teachers and parents the opportunity to discuss their student's learning goals, current grade level standards, and ways that parents can support their students at home. Four Heroes also conducted "Home Visits" at the beginning of the year to welcome students back to school, a "Back to School Night" for students and families to learn more about their teacher and grade level expectations, a "Success Night" to set students up for a successful school year and help parents support students with homework, and many other fun events like "Fitness Night".

Kids at Hope

In addition, Four Heroes staff continues to build capacity in the belief of Hope in our students. Every morning students gather in the gym for the Morning Opening where we pledge to make each day a GREAT day. Students were celebrated for their accomplishments in academics and citizenship monthly at assemblies. C.L.E.A.R. cards were given out to students who showed the traits of a Top Dog (Courage, Leadership, Endurance, Attitude, and Respect). Students were asked to think about their future and time travel in order to plan for it. Staff and students believe that All Children are capable of success, No Exceptions, No Excuses!
