Author Visit: On Wednesday, January 25th, Heatherwood Library will be hosting National Book Award and Newbery Medal winner, Steve Sheinkin. He’s a non-fiction author who is touring the country promoting his latest book, Undefeated: Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team. One of his books, B---: The Race to build and Steal The World’s Most Dangerous Weapon (see the link for the full title- the district filter blocks it), is on the 7th Grade Battle and used to be required 9th grade reading district-wide. Another one of his titles, The Port Chicago 50: Disaster, Mutiny, and the Fight for Civil Rights, is part of the district-wide required 8th grade summer reading program. Here’s more info about his books:
Wrestling (co-ed, no-cut, and open to 6th-8th grade but 6th grade cannot compete in matches). No prior experience necessary! First practice is Feb 6. To participate, students must submit required forms through https://everettschools.rankonesport.com/Main/Default2.aspx?Type=4.
Athletic Forms and ASB cards - All students who participate on a sports team must pay a sports fee (for each sport played) and an ASB card. These fees can be paid online on the HMS website ("Payments online") tab or in the main office during office hours (7:30-3:30pm). Students who qualify for free/reduced lunch can see Ms. Anderson in the Attendance Office,
Uniforms - Any student who played for Heatherwood soccer
who has not yet turned in his/her uniform needs to do so immediately.
Failure to turn in the uniform will result in a fine. Athletes also will
not be able to turn out for other Heatherwood teams until the uniform is
returned. Turn in uniforms to the Attendance Office.
Soccer Club begins on Feb 7. Students of all grades and all ability levels are encouraged to come and play! Students must complete an emergency medical form to participate but otherwise do not need to have any additional forms or sports physicals completed. Emergency medical forms are to be picked up/turned in at the Attendance Office. On February 7, Mr. Brown will host an informational meeting about the club at 3:00pm in the cafeteria. Students should bring athletic shoes (no spikes), shorts, t-shirt, coat or sweatshirt, and a water bottle.
