All after school clubs and activities (i.e. jump rope, art, music, math, sports, etc.)will normally meet only on days that the school follows a full day schedule, NOT on early release days. There is no extra-curricular activity bus for students who participate in these activities. Parents whose child frequently rides a bus must make transportation and/or other arrangements for the student to be picked up from school following the activity. Notification of these activities will be sent to the parent along with the day and time of the activity. In addition, due to unforeseen training, meetings, or teacher absences, an activity may be canceled without advanced notice. The sponsoring teacher will endeavor to notify students and parents of the canceled activity if time permits. If the activity is canceled at the last minute, students will be notified through the school intercom system at the end of the instructional day.
Sponsors of clubs and extracurricular activities determine academic and behavioral (disciplinary) requirements that students must meet to participate in school sponsored extracurricular activities or to hold a leadership position in a curriculum-related club, team or student organization.
Heroes Elementary School has a Live Video Broadcast called Eagle Eye News. This Broadcast is live-streamed through our school’s YouTube Channel which is managed by DODEA. The live show will begin at 8:30 am each school day and every classroom will be tuned in to watch. In addition, the shows will be archived on the YouTube Channel so you can rewatch the broadcast and share the link with others.
Every K-5 student will have the opportunity to be featured on the daily newscast at least once this school year. In addition, 5th grade students will be trained throughout the year to use the video equipment.
