We teach independence and responsibility
Our staff are well trained in early childhood education and developmentally appropriate material. We provide a support network for your child and have a system in place to monitor each student's progress as they advance in grade and skill level. If at any point you have concerns about your child's learning progress, our teachers are always willing to schedule a meeting and/or phone call. Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held midway through the school year as well.
Do you want your child to take responsibility for some of their own needs? We encourage kids to help with chores and tidy up after themselves. We also praise children for helping others. In addition, we facilitate a learning environment in which children are made aware of the effect their actions have on others, both positive and negative.
Heidi Ho desires for each child and their families to experience the abundant love of God. We teach students basic Christian values such as treating others with kindness and respect and hope each child may learn to know and love Jesus on a personal level. We guide students through Bible studies, worship songs, memory verses and prayer with a goal to teach Christian living by example.
We strive to provide the best Christian, educationally rich environment for every child that attends Heidi Ho School. As such, we require certain expectations of students to be met, for the good of his or her learning and their classmates.
Punctuality is very important in the classroom. Late arrivals can disrupt the class activities and flow of schedule. Children tend to thrive in a routine environment so making it a point to show up on time every day will help set them up for success.
Some teachers allow toys for show and tell but in general, toys from home are discouraged. They tend to cause conflict and distraction. Cell phones, electronic games, and personal media players should not be brought to school.
The school emphasizes developing Godly character in children. We expect students to take responsibility for their behavior by making decisions that honor the and Lord, their parents, teachers and each other. Self control is emphasized to the children during behavioral learning opportunities.
Students are expected to demonstrate an attitude of mutual respect in all relationships. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Accidents and Illness
In the event that your child is injured or becomes and requires medical attention while at school, you will be called immediately. If it is an emergency, we will call 9-1-1 first, and then you. Other minor injuries are treated appropriately by First Aid trained staff. An accident report will be recorded as well. If a child becomes ill (fever, vomiting, diarrhea) parents will be contacted and asked to come pick them up. If a child just doesn't feel well, parents may be contacted and given an update on the child's condition with the option to pick them up early.
Student clothing must be modest, honoring to the Lord. If apparel is deemed inappropriate, it may be called to the parent's attention.
1. Clothes should be appropriate for the function and occasion.
2. Hats are not acceptable in the building (except for dress up days in January)
3. Clothing must not display any inappropriate words or images.
4. No spaghetti straps, bare midriffs,
skirts or shorts more than 2 inches above the knee.
5. We ask that shorts please be worn under skirts and dresses.
6. Please keep clothing simple by limiting the number of buckles, buttons, zippers and all-in-one outfits. Going to the bathroom when you are 3 or 4 can be challenging enough without these extra steps.
Conditions of Absence
Conditions under which a child will not be admitted to school, and will be sent home from school include, but are not limited to:
Temperature of 100 degrees of higher
Rash, lice or nits
Any other indication of poor health
Safety and Language
Students are expected to use edifying language and to conduct themselves in a safe manner:
1. Physical Safety - Pushing, shoving, wrestling and rough play is not tolerated.
2. Emotional Safety - Intimidation, name calling and degrading language is not tolerated.
3. Facility Safety - Learning environment will be kept clean and orderly.
Personal property will be well cared for and will not create unnecessary temptation to others. Students causing damage to school property will be responsible for its replacement or repair.
