Monday marked the launch of the 2019 Heilicher Annual Fund. Eighth grade students helped us kickoff the celebration with coffee from our friends at Caribou Coffee and apples from Apple Jack Orchards. Thank you to all of our families who help support the Heilicher Annual Fund!

Meet Evelyn Sadlowski - HaBonim Interim Coordinator

Good Afternoon Heilicher Families!
Evelyn Sadlowski

My name is Evelyn Sadlowski, and I am the new Interim HaBonim Coordinator. I am excited to be a part of this community and to continue providing a fun, engaging, and safe environment for your children outside of school!

I went to University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I received my Bachelor's in Elementary Education as well as my 1st-8th grade teaching license. Since my graduation in December '16, I have been a Substitute Teacher in both the Madison and Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro areas. This past summer I was the Program Director for Summer Quest at Camp Olami, where I was lucky enough to meet some of your kiddos!

I am thrilled to be in a position where I can utilize both my education and program directing skill sets. My goal this year is to get to know each student as an individual, and continue to foster a safe and structured environment where everyone feels welcome.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions/concerns at: or 952-381-3374.

See you all soon,
Evelyn Sadlowski

October 23 Information Evening

This Tuesday evening, October 23 at 7 p.m., is our Heilicher Information Evening. Be sure to tell your neighbors and friends about this special event. We already have 16  applications for kindergarten next year and are booking tours into November. Word-of-mouth marketing is the best (and most influential) kind.

Heilicher Spirit Wear Poll

We are looking to expand our Spirit Wear Shop. Please let us know what you would like to see next with our short survey. Be sure to stop by the Spirit Wear Shop during Fall Conferences on Thursday and Friday to stock up on fall gear. 
Heilicher Hallway Chat

Please join us on Heilicher Hallway Chat, a private Facebook group for parents and alumni. The purpose of this group is for casual conversation like the type you might have in the hallway or the parking lot when you have five minutes to chat. Heilicher Hallway Chat is also a place that we use to remind people of upcoming events, volunteer needs, and school closures due to weather.   The idea here is not to kvetch about the school or policies. We want this to be a fun, easy, and entertaining space to bring the Heilicher community together online. Be sure to join us, by searching "Heilicher Hallway Chat" and be added to the group today.
