Principal's Message

Dear Families,
The cold weather has arrived in full force the last couple weeks.  Our students love playing outside, and we get them out there as much as possible.  Please make sure your child comes dressed for the current weather.  We will keep them inside if the weather is too extreme.
Our students have finished their mid-winter testing.  It has been exciting to see their growth, and we will continue to provide interventions and extensions as needed.  Reading 20 minutes per night, and practicing math facts are great things to work on at home.
To all of you, those familiar with our school and those new to the district, I encourage you to become involved in the educational process.  Visit our school, and see firsthand the achievements of our children.  Terrace Heights is a place where we value the learning of each and every student, and work hard for them every day.  Please do not hesitate to contact our school office with any questions or concerns.

Please help the office to keep your contact information current by updating any address, phone number or e-mail address changes that occur throughout the school year.

If at all possible when you are making a change to after school arrangements (including after school clubs or programs) please notify the office by 1:45 so our teaching staff will have the correct information in a timely manner.

Every Friday we are having Bear Dens or a Rally from 2:45 until 3:23.  This is a positive social time for your student where they are developing new relationships.  We would like to keep interruptions to a minimum if you are needing to check out your student please try to arrive before or after this time.

When you are dropping off your kids in the morning, please remember the following:
- The left lane is for parking your car.
- The right lane is for dropping off only.
- Pull all the way forward - that way, cars won’t be backed up down the driveway.
- If the student is able to, they are to exit the vehicle on the passenger/curb side.
- If the student is on the driver’s side, the parent must walk them around to the curb.
- Please remember to make it a quick drop-off.
