Heritage Weekly News - September 15, 2019

Dear Aviator families,

Our students participated in International Dot Day on Friday, based on the children's book The Dot by Peter Reynolds. Dot Day, and the book The Dot, celebrate creativity and expression. This is the fourth year that Heritage students have celebrated Dot Day, and it is one of our most precious traditions. Students in all classes created dot art and "made their mark" through artistic expression. Students also learned a song about making their mark, engaged in school wide sing-alongs of the Dot Song with Mrs. Gibbs and their teachers, and enjoyed dot inspired learning throughout the day.

Each year we use dots from this day to create a work of public art to brighten our campus. This year, each child and staff member painted a rock to be placed in our garden. The rocks will be temporarily displayed in one of the planter beds in the plaza as they await their permanent garden home. Previous art displays include the flower near Miss Debbie’s desk, the tree in the MPR, and the art along the walls in the main hall of the office.

See you tomorrow,
Mrs. RB
