Mrs. Myers

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Heights Murray Elementary School!

At Heights, we provide a safe, supportive, and orderly environment with expectations of students’ academic success, open communication, development of strong character, perseverance, and respect for diversity while preparing students for an ever-changing world. 

A positive school-wide learning community is important for all students, in which they experience culturally responsive, engaging, rigorous, and student-centered instruction. Our dedicated teachers promote independent and collaborative student skills to become life-long learners, critical thinkers and contributing citizens, able to expand basic skills, develop good decision making, problem solving and communication skills.

I am responsible for the learning, safety, and emotional growth of our students. Only by working with every part of the community will I meet this great responsibility. Working together, we will provide the best possible education for the children. I encourage all families to become involved in the educational journey of their child/children and to maintain communication with teachers and administration. Many events will occur during and after school that will promote a great sense of community. Parental involvement is critical to establish a successful school community.

Our Heights motto “Be Safe, Respectful, Responsible, and Positive” is shared school-wide and is inherent in everything we do. Students are recognized for doing what is right, and in turn, feeling a great sense of accomplishment while taking part in our School-Wide Positive Behavior Program. I look forward to working with all stakeholders to promote and sustain a positive learning community at Heights Murray Elementary School.
