PTA Welcomes You

Welcome Back Heritage Huskies!!! We are so happy to be back to school. Our PTA theme this year is, "I can and I will." Henry Ford once said, "Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right." Our brains are such powerful tools and we want to help the kids increase their positive thinking. For the month of September our focus will be "I can BE BRAVE and I will." How can you help your child be brave? What does it mean to be brave?? What is something your child can do this month to be brave? Ask these questions to your kids and have a discussion on bravery. We would love to hear the brave things your kids are doing! Please email to share the brave things your children are doing and we will share a few each week in the Huskygram.

Thank you for all of your support at Back to School Night with Nothing Bundt Cakes. Those who ordered certificates should be receiving them soon!

We will be having the Heritage Hike in a few weeks!!! Look for more info coming soon!
