The Shield

Keeping the Faith and Keeping Connected

August 15, 2019

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20


This Friday is the first Friday of School! Wear your Spirit Wear and jeans!

2019-2020 Theme

This year's school theme is Live Your Faith. We will be sharing with the students how they can take their Christian Faith and apply it to everyday life. In chapel, our speakers will be sharing about the faith of the people mentioned in Hebrews 11 and how their lives are examples for us to follow.

Change in Parking Needed

We had a great first day of school. The drop-off and pick procedures worked well and we thank you for your cooperation. Going forward we are making two changes. We are asking staff and faculty, especially those who come early for 1st hour, to park on the east side Zone 1. Seniors who drive themselves are welcome to park in Zone 3. This will allow more room for parents parking in Zone 2. See diagram below for Zone numbers.

No Family Folders

Parents this year there will be no family folders. Teachers will communicate with parents and students via email and Gradelink.

Helpful Video for Heritage Parents

At Teacher Development today, staff and faculty watched a video from the UMSI conference this summer. The video was entitled, “The Restoration of Man and the Future of Christian Education”. Many of the teachers felt that Heritage parents would also enjoy the video. We are including a link below which should take you to the video page from the conference this summer. You will need to scroll down to find the appropriate video. We hope you enjoy it.

Old School Values, New School Schedule

Heritage Academy is a University-Model® School, facilitating students' access to excellent education, increased time with family, and opportunities for growth toward maturity while providing a cost-effective, college-preparatory education. In an age where family life is becoming increasingly fragmented, the unique structure of the model also serves to “turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers ” (Malachi 4:6).
