Welcome Message

Welcome to Heroes Elementary, a 2020 National Blue Ribbon School. Heroes is a school where students are the heart of what we do! It is an honor and privilege to work with our military-connected students.

At Heroes, you will hear us say “our students” because we believe that we have a collective and shared responsibility for all students in the school. The staff of Heroes is dedicated to helping our students achieve their greatest potential. Our staff care about the social and emotional well-being of our students and providing a safe place to learn.

Creating and maintaining relationships with all stakeholders is a priority for Heroes ES. We know the importance of building a sense of community within and outside the walls of the school. We look forward to continuing our community partnerships.

At Heroes, we provide support to our students to ensure they receive an excellent education. As your school leader, it is important for our students to utilize the 21st Century Skills of collaboration, creativity, citizenship, communication, and critical thinking to be college and career ready. Our WIN (What I Need) time is dedicated to provide support to all students based on their needs, whether remediation or enrichment. Throughout the year, all of our students participate on our live Eagle Eye News in the morning. This live broadcast gives our students the opportunity to work in a news station in our school.

We encourage you to be involved and join OUR school. There are opportunities to support our school through volunteering, attending school events, joining PTO, and a variety of other ways. Thank you for your partnership and support! Go EAGLES!
