Principal's Message


Welcome to Heather Hills, an elementary school where students and standards drive what we do.  We have lots of exciting things happening at our school every day.  Our teachers' instruction is driven by an academic calendar that has been aligned to the state standards.  Initial instruction occurs with follow-up assessments.  Reteaching occurs when students have not been successful in mastering material in the classroom and small groups are formed for a specific "Target Time."  During this time, students' individual learning needs are met.  If you visit any one of our classrooms, and we hope you will, you will see focused instruction, engaged learners and high expectations for all.

In addition to our excellent academic programs, we also offer after school activities, Student Council, S.T.A.R. Student celebratins, Special Arts Programs and many other opportunities to help our students become lifelong learners. 

Mr. Russell

"At Heather Hills we strive to meet and support each student as we climb to new heights."
