WORDS FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

Thank you to all who purchased Wasatch Savings books this year. We kept this fundraiser low key because of life’s circumstances, but we still received a fair amount of money after the company got their share. We have approximately $4500.00 to use to supplement supplies and materials in our classrooms.


Thanks to all who have voted and continue to vote in the Just Right Cares Contest. It looks like Heritage is crushing it which is really fun! We really appreciate your help! (https://www.justrightair.com/cares)


Have a safe and healthy weekend.


Ruthanne Keller

Principal, Heritage Elementary

MASKS, MASKS & MORE MASKS!

PLEASE send an extra mask in your child's backpack and encourage them to use the lanyard that was issued to each student.


We had a large donation of masks from a few people in the community but they are almost gone. Each day students are showing up without a mask and students are coming in after recesses saying they lost their mask. We are averaging 15-20 extra masks each day. Once our supply runs out, students will need to call home for a new mask to be delivered to the school. It will be easier for you and us if you have an extra mask in each backpack.


Having said that, we are taking donations of masks :) They must be in new condition.

Ideas: Make a gratitude jar. Add to it daily.

With M&Ms play the gratitude game.
