Welcome to the Blue Heron PTA website!

We are excited that you have found us here!

We are busy at work trying to keep you and your families up-to-date with the most recent news and happenings from our PTA.

Our goal and mission is for the PTA to be a powerful voice for ALL children. We strive to be a relevant resource for families in our community, and to be a stong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.

A huge goal we are working on this year is increasing parental involvement in our school. There are many ways to be involved in your children’s school.  At Blue Heron, we have several events throughout the year to participate in. Whether you are a work-on-the-sidelines kind of parent or a direct-hands-on parent, there is a job for you.  Research shows how important parental involvement is – check out this video Parent Involvement Matters!

Please email us at if you find you are able to help the PTA out in anyway possible!

Thank You,

Melissa Kirkpatrick – PTA President

The Blue Heron Elementary Garden

Do you like to play in the dirt?  We are looking for volunteers starting the week of March 20th and April 10th, to start the planting season for the Blue Heron Garden!    We are need of parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to help in your child’s classroom with seed planting.  The process is easy,  fun and a great way to make an impact in our community.  If interested contact Jamey at

Kings Soopers Cards


Blue Heron PTA and Kings Soopers Program

Everyone needs groceries and gas, why not give 5% of your purchases to our school?

It is as easy as: PURCHASE, LOAD, SHOP…

PURCHASE – simply purchase your re-loadable King Soopers card from the PTA through the link below for $5.  You will receive $5 dollars on the card, so essentially your card is free.  Please encourage family and friends to also purchase King Soopers gift cards through our school! Don’t forget to let them know that they can reload the card at the register and continue to support our school.

LOAD – you can reload (add value to) your card indefinitely at the register or Customer Service Desk  or register for any amount up to $500, you may use your debit or credit card to load. Tell the cashier that you would like to add money to your gift card BEFORE they ring up your groceries then pay with your gift card.  You can also use the gift card for gas at King Soopers.

SHOP – KEEP YOUR CARD and use it whenever you shop or BUY GAS at Kings Soopers.  Gift cards may be used at City Market Fuel Centers and are accepted at most Kroger affiliated stores through the U.S. Each time we reach $5,000 as a group, King Soopers sends a 5% check to our PTA!


There is no cost to you or to the PTA and our children will reap the benefits!  Thank you for supporting your PTA!

Purchase your King Soopers card(s) online here!  They will be sent home in your child’s Friday Folder
