  • Middle School Transition Events

    Posted by Erin Spies on 4/25/2019

    Hello Parents & Students,

    We are very excited to welcome you to Deer Creek 6th grade and the Heritage Middle School family next year! The transition to 6th grade is very important, and we have planned several events that will help prepare you and your students.

    Week of May 13 – School Counselor Visits in 5th Grade Classrooms

    During this week, LMS school counselors will be visiting the 5th grade elementary classrooms to provide an overview of middle school and answer students’ questions about middle school.

    May 20th – Deer Creek 6th Grade Parent Information and Instrument Rental Night

    Join us for an informational presentation about the exciting changes you can expect during 6th grade for both parents and students. After the presentation, there will be time to ask any questions that you may have. Our Counselor and Principal will be leading the presentation to help make the elementary to middle school transition as easy as possible.  Parents and students are invited to stay after for an opportunity to visit with area music stores and rent your new instrument!

    5:00 – 5:45 pm: Deer Creek 6th Grade Parent Information Presentation in Liberty Middle School Theatre

    5:00 – 7:00pm: Personnel from Schmitt’s Music, Eckroth, and Christian Eggert Violins will be available from 5:00-7:00pm in Liberty Middle School Commons to answer questions and help assist in the rental of an instrument.

    Deer Creek 6th Grade Registration at Liberty Middle School: You only need to attend one of these dates!

    Monday, August 5th – 8:00am-4:00pm

    Tuesday, August 6th – 11:00am-7:00pm

    Students will be able to pick up their school schedules, receive bus information, as well as put money in their lunch accounts. Students will also take their school picture at registration!

    Thursday, August 22nd - Deer Creek 6th Grade Back to School Night

    6th grade students and their families are welcome to join us at our back to school night from 5:00-7:00pm at Deer Creek Elementary. Students and parents will receive a short welcome presentation from Dr. Spies at 5:00pm in the library. The remainder of the time is for students and parents to meet and greet 6th grade teachers, as well as hear presentations from their team of teachers (and encore teachers) in order to learn more about 6th grade!

  • Welcome Heritage Families!

    Posted by Erin Spies on 3/13/2019

    Dear Heritage Middle School Families,

    This letter is to officially welcome you and your child to Heritage Middle School. To avoid having your child attend one year of middle school at Liberty before transitioning to Heritage, your child will be attending Deer Creek Elementary School next year as a 6th grader.  The district will break ground this spring on Heritage, with construction continuing up until the fall of 2020. The students will transition to Heritage in 2020-21, when it opens its doors for the first time.   

    Heritage Middle School will hold registration on August 5 and 6 at Liberty Middle School due to the anticipated construction completion schedule for Deer Creek Elementary. Unless your child(ren) are currently attending another school within the district via a multi-year in-district transfer, you will need to register for 6th grade with Heritage Middle School. Our Back-to-School Night will be held on Thursday, August 22; I hope to see you there.

    Next year, our 6th grade school day will run from 8:45 AM – 3:45 PM. The webpage for Heritage Middle School is still under construction. Make sure you check our website in the near future for information and updates on our school and other school-related information.

    I hope you can join me for an informal “getting to know one another” event on April 2nd from 6:30-7:00 PM at Legacy Elementary. Please feel free to connect with me at that time on any questions or concerns. I will be in contact regarding upcoming transition events this spring.

    I am excited to serve as the first principal of Heritage and to work with an excellent staff and parent group to open another great WFPS school! If you need to reach me at any time, please email me at espies@west-fargo.k12.nd.us or call me at 701-499-9003. I look forward to meeting the new middle school family soon!

  • Parent Portal

    The Parent Portal is a tool designed to keep parents informed of their child's academic progress; it is a supplement to other school-parent communication. A single sign-on functionality is available that allows parents to have a single account for multiple children. In order to access the Parent Portal, a single sign-on account must be created. Children can be added to an account by utilizing the account ID and password provided by the child's school.

    Setting Up Your Account

    Print a copy of the Parent Portal Access Request Form. Complete the form and bring it, and your photo ID, to your child's school.

    Once the information is validated, the Parent Portal ID and password will be emailed to the address provided on the form. This information will be needed to assign students to your Parent Portal single sign-on account. Note: the access ID and password are not your Parent Portal credentials.

    Prior to creating your single sign-on account, you will need the access ID(s) and password(s) emailed by your child's school. Contact the school if you misplaced the information.

    Use a web browser to navigate to the PowerSchool login. Log in and select the CREATE ACCOUNT tab and the CREATE ACCOUNT button. Follow the questions to enter your first name, your last name, your email address, your desired username, and your chosen password.

    Select the LINK STUDENTS TO ACCOUNT tab and follow the questions to enter your child's name, the associated access ID for the child, the associated password, and the relationship you have to the child. Repeat these steps to add additional children to your single sign-on account.
