This Week at Heritage

Volume 1. Issue 3: September 16

Welcome to Heritage!

Say Cheese! Picture day is Thursday, September 22

School picture day is Thursday. Please return all picture day envelopes to your student's teacher prior to picture day. Students may wear free dress on this day, but it must be school appropriate.

Heritage Reminders: Timely Arrivals and Tardies

We are still working on timely arrivals to school. School begins promptly at 8:00, and students are expected to be in their class lines at this time. If a child is late, she or he must come to the office for a tardy slip. Please be certain your child is on campus and in their line well before the 8:00 bell. We will be closing our main gate at 8:00 each morning. Please work as a family to create a plan to arrive on time daily.

Dino Dash Spirit Days: Wear Dino Dash Tee-shirts on Wednesdays

We want to have a great showing at the Dino Dash, particularly in the 2K Fun Run. To help promote this great fundraiser and community event, students may wear a previous year's Dino Dash tee-shirt to school on Wednesdays between now and the Dash.

Each year, on the first Sunday of November, the Tustin Public Schools Foundation hosts a race to support Tustin Schools. Families and students, as well as local runners and biker, can participate in a 10K, 5K, 2K Fun Run, or a 50K Bike Tour. A portion of each entry is allocated to the school. We are hoping to have strong participating from our Heritage community to show our support for Heritage and Tustin Schools. As a school community we will be walking the 2K, though you are encouraged to run the race of your choice. For more information and to sign-up for the Dino Dash go to:

Spotlight on Instruction: Dot Day

Our students participated in International Dot Day Thursday, based on the children's book The Dot by Peter Reynolds. Dot Day, and the book The Dot, celebrate creativity and artistic expression. Students in all classes created dot art and "made their mark" through artistic expression. For more information about Dot Day, go to You can also watch "The Dot" on YouTube at the link below.
