The Shield

Keeping the Faith and Keeping Connected

AUGUST 16, 2018

Volume 3, Issue 2

"Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts."

Psalm 145:3-4


Theme For This Year

This year's theme is GRIT and it is taken from Galatians 6:9 which says, "Let us not become weary of doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Throughout the year we will have the opportunity to talk to the students about what it means to "do good" and how sometimes we fail in doing that. We will also talk about not giving up and how important perseverance is in their lives and especially in their spiritual lives. We are looking forward to encouraging the students in their growth of knowledge and faith this school year.

This Friday is Spirit Friday

This Friday is the first Friday of the month that we are in class, which means it's Spirit Friday! Students, faculty, and staff may wear Spirit Wear (a Heritage shirt or a shirt in one of our school colors, navy or maroon) and appropriate jeans (no holes or distressing.) Go Warriors!

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).
