Principal's Message

Mrs. Myers
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Heights-Murray Elementary School! This school year may look different due to the important safety guidelines and instructional models implemented, but our goals will remain.

At Heights, we provide a safe and supportive environment with clear 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.

Working together with families, community partners, and local agencies, we will provide the best possible education for our students. I encourage all families to become involved in the educational journey of their child/children and to maintain communication with teachers and administration. Family  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 for the 2020-2021 school year!
