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.
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
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!
