• Letter From the Principal's Desk:


    Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,


    Welcome to the start of the 2023-2024 school year at Shaw Heights! As the Principal, I am thrilled to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to both our returning families and new members of our school community. We are excited to embark on this journey together, and I want to take this opportunity to share some important aspects to help focus on to kickoff this year.


    School Safety: Ensuring the safety and well-being of our students and staff is our top priority. We will implement safety protocols to create a secure environment where learning and personal growth can flourish. 


    Attendance is Key to Their Success: Regular attendance is a fundamental aspect of academic achievement. Consistent attendance ensures that students stay engaged in the learning process and maintain essential connections with their peers and teachers. We kindly request parents to prioritize punctuality and encourage their child to be present every day. Together, we can create a positive habit of attendance that will contribute to their academic progress and overall success.


    Parent Involvement: We recognize the critical role that parents and guardians play in their child's education. Engaged parents are invaluable partners in fostering academic success and promoting a positive school culture. 


    Back-to-School Routines at Home: As we gear up for the start of the school year, I urge parents to establish and maintain consistent routines at home. Adequate rest, a balanced diet, and designated study time will greatly benefit your child's overall well-being and academic performance. Setting aside time for homework, reading, and extracurricular activities helps foster a sense of responsibility and commitment to learning.


    School Day: The school day will begin promptly at 7:00 AM, with doors opening for students to arrive on time. Dismissal will take place at 2:10 PM. Punctuality during drop-off and pick-up is vital to ensure a smooth and efficient start and end to the school day.


    I firmly believe that with the combined efforts of our talented staff, dedicated parents, and motivated students, we will make this year a resounding success. Together, we will create a nurturing and enriching learning environment that fosters growth, creativity, and achievement.


    Thank you for choosing Shaw Heights as your partner in education. Let us work hand in hand to make this year a memorable and successful one for everyone.

    In partnership,

    John Uridil
    Principal, Shaw Heights
