Attendance Communication Updates
Starting in December, Heuvelton Central School will be modifying our daily attendance communication. Along with phone call notification, email and text messages will also be made. These communications will include a link allowing parents/guardians to respond with an excuse for a child’s absence. As with any change, we expect a period of acclimation and appreciate your patience as we implement this process.
If you would like to update your contact information (i.e. email, mobile phone number), or have feedback on this change, please contact the school and ask to speak to the guidance or attendance office.
Hour of Code
Heuvelton students participated in Hour of Code last week! The Hour of Code (check out the video ) is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to show that anyone can learn the basics and create a awareness of the field of computer science. The Hour of Code takes place during Computer Science Education Week, which this year is December 3-9.
Why Computer Science?- It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. Students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. Just a quick fact- in 2015 -"7 million openings in the U.S. were in occupations—including art and design—that value coding skills." (https://hourofcode.com/us/promote/stats) That number has grown since.

Taste Test Thursday
Each Thursday, students are offered a new fruit or vegetable in the cafeteria serving and encouraged to try it! This helps students broaden their horizons and try new healthy foods.
