I hope you have had an enjoyable summer full of quality family time and fun adventures. The staff at Pacific Heights Elementary look forward to another school year with your children. We will have another fun year of learning full of inquiry, STEM challenges, and play.
The first week of school is a busy week as we are getting to know our students. The students will be working in their grade groups, providing them the opportunity to work with different teachers and peers. These interactions will help teachers determine class placements and go over class/school routines. We are thoughtful and deliberate as we review the educational and social emotional needs of each child as we make our class lists. The most suitable placement your child based on the following criteria:
- Student intellectual, social and emotional development
- Learning styles and strengths of students
- Degree of independence
- Social compatibility
- Gender balance
- Maintaining appropriate teacher-student ratios
I am excited for this school year. Please remember my door is open to our parents and community members. Working together with open and honest communication is required to meet the needs of our learners and to build a positive school environment. I look forward to the opportunity to hear from you. Please feel welcome to come and say hello and introduce yourselves.

School supply lists are posted on our website. Student will need limited supplies for the first week of school. Teachers will inform students of what they need to bring. For this who have ordered supplies through EduPac, they will be distributed to students once classes are set.
We are happy to be sending an agenda home with your child. The agenda contains important information for parents and students. Please send $2.00 for each agenda with your child in the week of September 11, 2017.
All visitors to the school must report and sign in at the office to receive a visitor’s badge. This helps to ensure student safety. If you are bringing your child’s lunch, please label it clearly with your child’s name and leave it by the office. Please do not bring lunches directly to classrooms as it disturbs student learning.
