All volunteers in the H-E-B ISD have to have an annual background check completed.  Background checks for all of our volunteers need to be done using the current, more comprehensive system.

 

 

 

Parents that are interested in being a chaperone on their child’s field trip should complete one of the Volunteer Background Checks.  Only parents that have current Background Checks will be eligible for the drawings to be a grade level chaperone for a field trip!

Access to Daily Grades

The ability to monitor a student’s grades and any assignment information can now be securely viewed from an Internet Browser at home or office through our Grade Access feature.  This secured access requires an Internet connection and a confidential user name and password issued to the parent/guardian by the school.

 

An additional feature is an e-mail notification system.  Parents have the flexibility of choosing which report or notifications they would like to receive and how often they would like to receive them.

We hope you take advantage of another way to help with your child’s academic success.

 

We ask that all interested parents come to the Bedford Heights office to sign-up.

 

** Grade Access is not available to families of Kindergarten or 1st grade students due to the unique report cards and grading in those grade levels.

Dads Club

If you are a dad or that special male in your Bulldog’s family, the Bedford Heights’ Dad's Club would like you to be a part of the group that is dedicated to helping make our school even better for everyone.

 

The Dad's Club is looking to make a difference by demonstrating to the children that males can also be a positive influence at an elementary school. Plans include being morning and afternoon greeters, being organized for events to function as a go-to team for heavy labor, and even offer their handyman services for various projects around the school!

 

Details can be obtained by e-mailing your name to bhe.dadsclub@gmail.com
