Art Teacher Receives Award

Posted by

"There are no mess-ups, only creative solutions."  This is Ms. Boller's favorite saying. Cassandra Boller is the art teacher at Heather Hills Elementary. She wants her students to realize that as artists, mistakes can become a challenge and a new direction.  This is just one of several reasons that local business, Office Depot, honored this elementary art teacher.  Ms. Boller received her award On October 6th with students and staff in attendance.  Ms. Boller incorporates art, learning, and fun to create an atmosphere all children can succeed.  Students not only get experience working with many different art techniques, but also learn about different cultures.  Ms. Boller explores world cultures through her units on Mexico's Day of the Dead and the Harlem Renaissance. As part of her award, Ms. Boller received many supplies from Office Depot including a digital camera, a printer, a chair, art materials, paper and other office supplies.  Heather Hills is proud to have this exceptional teacher as one of its own.

Heather Hills Parent Resource Center

Posted by

"When parents get involved in their children's education, the children do better in school, are better behaved, have more positive attitudes toward school and grow up to be more successful in life."  That is the belief and inspiration behind the new Parent Resource Center at Heather Hills Elementary.  The center was started so parents would have a place of their own within the school.  The resource center will allow parents to identify with other parents who may share the same or similar stories.  "We as parents have the ability to partner with the school, and the community to help our children become successful adults," is quoted on the website.  The parent center has clinical books for parents to check out, reading materials, CD's, videos, games, and more.  It offers services such as fellowship hour, consultations, workshops and seminars.  Parents will be able to take advantage of extra programs for their child such as: reading readiness, story hour tea party, self esteem workshops, and anger management workshops. One objective of the Parent Resource center is to provide more opportunities for parents to volunteer and to become a voice in their child's school. The resource center already hosts such activities such as bingo, art classes and spaghetti dinners.  Even more important are the activities for the parent and child together. The parent center offers a three week course for Moms and their child called I-Mom Snack.  Participants get a certificate and award upon completion.   Kathleen Bosley is Parent Liaison to the Resource Center.  Mrs. Bosley, a parent of two children who attend Heather Hills and an instructional assistant at the school, was instrumental is starting the resource center.  The Parent Resource Center at Heather Hills Elementary is a great step towards empowering parents with the right tools and knowledge to raise healthy, happy, successful children.
