Dear Heritage Families
Hello Heritage Families,
We wanted to thank everyone who was able to donate to our Boosterthon Fundraiser! We surpassed our goal of $20,000 which allowed many staff members to be pied in the face.
Our final total was $22,847! Not only will this be enough for our new sound system in the gym but much, much more. Thank you again for supporting our school and PTA. The kids had so much fun at the Fun Run and will benefit from these funds in many ways!

Fall Parties & Rock Your School Day
It’s almost time for ROCK YOUR SCHOOL DAY!
It’s a nationwide initiative to bring student engagement to classrooms all over the world! We can’t wait to ROCK N ROLL! All students will be participating in this jammin’ day filled with lots of learning, fun and of course ENGAGEMENT!
If you’d like to add to the excitement, have your child dress in their best rocker attire!
We are looking forward to celebrating our rock stars on October 21 at our Rock Your School Parties from 9:00-10:00.

Also, students will not be released for pick up after 2:30 pm so please plan accordingly if you may need to pick your student up early from either office.
Caps for Camp and PJ Day!
We love to see and greet our students and families who walk to school in the morning. Here are a few safety reminders to help all of our Heritage Cubs & Bears start the day in the best way possible.
Children should ONLY cross at the crosswalk. Please do not allow your child to cross in the middle of the street.
Park 3-4 car lengths down on Northview Avenue and let your child out of the car. Have them walk to the corner and we will help them safely cross at the crosswalk. You are welcome to walk them to the building as well. Parking on Blumhoff and or dropping off on Blumhoff creates a traffic jam for our families and buses.
Please teach your child that if no one is at the crosswalk, they need to wait. Teachers will be out there at 8:05 a.m.
We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our Heritage Cubs & Bears safe.
We are pleased to announce that the Turkey Trot will be open to all kids from third grade through seventh grade within the Wentzville school district. This race has been going on for nearly 30 years and has been a fun one mile race with the kids participating from all parts of the district.
There is a traveling trophy that goes to the elementary school whose top three runners in each of the boys and girls divisions has the lowest combined score by adding their places. Heritage NEEDS that trophy!
Click the link below for the application. Deadline to apply is October 3.
Breakfast & Lunch
We already have some students who have negative lunch accounts. Please ensure that you are putting money in your child's lunch account.
We encourage all families to fill out the Free & Reduced Lunch form. Not only could you qualify for a free or reduced lunch rate, but this provides our district with the information it needs to secure Title 1 funds.
We have included a PDF of the Free and Reduced Lunch Application and also have paper copies available in the office. We will also have these available at Popsicles with the Principals, Kindergarten Orientation and Meet the Teacher Night.
The application can seem confusing, so if you would like us to help you fill it out-please call our office. We would be happy to help you ensure you are getting your best lunch rate!
Birthday Treat Policy Updated
Birthdays are special to your child and we want them to enjoy this occasion. At school, each teacher can decide how to handle classroom celebrations in a way that respects the instructional time and learning needs of all the students.
You are welcome to send non-edible birthday treats into your child’s classroom to celebrate their birthday if you choose.
2022-2023 character theme
This year our Character Theme is "Heritage Grows Great Character" - this is a plant & flower theme!
We will be exposing the students to lessons and books that highlight the following characteristics: Courage, Gratitude, Forgiveness, & Compassion
The students will also have a chance to earn a Character Education shirt by displaying these characteristics at school. If your child earns a T-shirt, we encourage them to wear them on Mondays as our staff will be sporting them as well.
We can't wait to see how many students will earn their character shirts this year!
What is Helping Hands?
We are so excited to share with you our photos of our new Sharing Shed and Lending Library. Don't hesitate to reach out! We will be here to lend a hand!
