Four Heroes Principal John Mitcher

Hello Top Dog families!

September has been a month full of learning! Our Top Dog community has worked hard to ensure that all students are safe and learning each and every day. As we settle into the school year, please continue to support your student’s attendance. We know that if students are not here, they cannot learn, so coming to school regularly and on time is very important. We look forward to celebrating our students with improved attendance all year long!

During the beginning of the school year, we work hard to get to know each and every one of our students. One way we do this is by looking at test results to understand your child’s academic strengths and areas of growth. Recently, K-1st grade students completed the STAR assessment and 2nd-5th graders took the MAP assessment. These computerized tests give us information that guides our planning and instruction to meet your students’ needs. We are eager to share these results with you so we can work together to support your child’s success!

Our annual Back to School Night is coming up on Thursday, September 26th from 5:00-7:00 PM. Each grade level will have a dedicated Spanish and English classroom for you to visit to learn some grade level information. There will also be additional booths for attendance, community partnerships, and health & wellness resources. We will even have a few baskets of school supplies to raffle off—we hope to see you there!

As the weather changes, please be mindful about sending your student to school with the appropriate clothing. Our students get the opportunity to be outside before school and during recess, so coats are going to be necessary. As we Washingtonians know, rain is a common part of our days so even if there’s slight rain, our students will still spend time outdoors. Recess is an essential part of the school day and there are many covered areas that students can access; so with the right jacket, they’ll be sure to still enjoy their time outside!

Please look forward to ongoing communication about upcoming events we will host here at Four Heroes. We are excited for a year full of learning and growing together! As always, please reach out to us with any questions or concerns.

Let’s make it a great year!
