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

We Still Need Volunteers at the Parent/Teacher Conferences!!!!

Hi everyone!
Thank you so much to everyone who has signed up to help with next week’s Parent/Teacher Conference Dinners.  It is great to see so many of you help and make sure the teachers are able to have a great meal during their late nights.
But, we still need help!  There are a few food items left to sign up for on Thursday, October 13th and we still need volunteers to help set up and clean up on both days.
For set up: we ask you come by right after school and help gather the food together and set it up for the teachers.  For clean up, you can come around 6:30pm to help put things away and/or throw items away.  Set up and clean up should take no longer than 15-20 minutes.

Click here to help with Wed 10/12 or click here to help with Thur 10/13.

We appreciate your help!

Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences

Please drop off your item(s) between 3:30-400 PM in the Teacher’s Lounge on Wednesday and Thursday. If you bring a crock pot, you may pick up after 6:30pm.  Please remember to place your name on any dishes/utensils you bring in.

Fall 2015 Garden Totals

Thank you to all who supported the garden this year!  We had a great and bountiful season.  Classroom harvesting for taste testing and cooking classes totaled 45 pounds of carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, peas and pumpkins.  The cafeteria received 20 pounds of produce to supplement hot lunches.

Special thanks go out to Boy Scout Troop 809 for helping to clean up the garden for fall.  We appreciate your support and look forward to assisting you with installing our new garden sign.

If you are interested in the volunteering with the garden look to see a meeting in January to prepare for next spring!!

Happy Gardening!

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
