Greetings Soaring Heights Families,

What a whirlwind of a week! CMAS testing for Grades 3-8 began this past week and will continue into next week. We are so proud of our students and how they have tackled this challenge. CMAS is an opportunity for our students to show what they know. It gives us important data on student achievement and helps to identify trends that better support the direction of our school.  Grades 3-8 will finish Language Arts testing on Monday followed by Science for Grades 5 and 8 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  

The Track and Field home meet will be at Erie High School this Monday, April 18th. Please come and cheer on our athletes! They are showing such incredible growth and are having such a great time.

This past week we experienced a range of weather that is typical for this time of year. Please make sure your child is prepared for changes in temperature, wind, and precipitation. 

We appreciate your partnership and support of our amazing school community. We are honored to work with you and your students. 

Have a wonderful week,

 

Cyrus Weinberger, Principal
Meghan Quirk, Assistant Principal

Road Construction on County Road 5: Road Closure 

Beginning Monday, March 14, County Road 5 will be closed to all traffic north of the Soaring Heights main entrance. Please click here for more information from the Town of Erie and a map of the impacted area.

Both entrances to Soaring Heights will remain open; however, they will only be accessible for cars traveling north on County Road 5, or traveling east on the newly opened Flora View Dr.  Cars exiting the parking lots will not be allowed to turn north.  If needed, Erie PD will be on-site to assist with traffic flow and pedestrian safety.

***Please use caution and mind the speed limit of 25 mph on Flora View Dr.  The Town of Erie has observed vehicles traveling at speeds beyond the speed limit.  Please help keep everyone safe during this construction phase and observe speed limits***
Waste Free Snack Contest from Eco-Eagles
 

During the month of April, the Eco-Eagles club is holding a waste-free snack contest. The purpose is to raise awareness of trash and litter and encourage waste-reducing habits during Earth month! 

To participate, students just need to take a photo of their trash-free snack and scan the contest QR code (posted in classrooms and hallways) to fill in the form and submit their entry. There is no limit to how many times students can enter! 

One winner each week will receive a gift card for an ice cream shop so they can enjoy a great waste-free treat...an ice cream cone!

Ideas for waste-free snacks include: apples, oranges and bananas packaged only in their own peel, chips or crackers packaged in a washable container, or reusing a zip top plastic bag instead of throwing it away. Good luck! Thanks for participating! 

 
This year, the Hispanic Education Foundation is once again hosting a Virtual Ceremony to announce the annual scholarship award recipients. The event will be Wednesday, May 4th. In addition to the virtual ceremony, we will be hosting a Dinner Night Out on the same evening at several restaurants in the area. (See the invitation for participating restaurants.) All funds raised by sponsorships and dinner night out support scholarships for seniors in our school district.
 

Insurance Fees Due!
 
Students' current iPad insurance must be paid in full to be eligible for insurance the following year.  Please visit the payments page to pay for insurance and any outstanding fees.
