Keeping the Faith and Keeping Connected

October 31, 2019

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 1:6-7

Heritage Academy Tardy Policy

Parents we would just like to remind you that this is the Heritage Academy tardy policy that is written in the family manual.

Tardiness is disruptive to other class members. Students are expected to arrive on time and prepared. All tardies are considered unexcused. Please remember that three tardies generate one absence.

Partnering and Parenting Seminar November 4th.

In an effort to encourage one another towards partnership, we have planned a seminar focusing on this topic for Monday, November 4 (8-10 AM). All Heritage parents are invited and encouraged to attend. New families are required to send at least one parent. This will be a fun opportunity to meet other parents and exchange ideas related to partnering and parenting towards success at Heritage Academy.

Picture Retakes

Our picture retake day is scheduled for November 4th.

Warrior Holiday Bazaar & Craft Sale Nov 8th

All Heritage Families are encouraged to participate - especially students! We are looking for hand-made crafts and retails items - but this is not a rummage sale.

Booths will be open over the lunch hour and then again after school for 2 hours.

Booth Fee is $10, please reserve space by Nov 1st by emailing Susan Renoe:

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).
