Keeping the Faith and Keeping Connected

October 11, 2018

Volume 3, Issue 10

"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross."

~Philippians 2:5-8


Spring Registration Forms Due Tomorrow

Reminder: Spring registration forms are due to the office Friday, October 12th. Forms left over from the Parent/Teacher Fellowship were mailed.

Box Top Competition Oct. 8-19

All Heritage students need to begin collecting box tops for our competition. The students can turn in the box tops Oct. 8th-19th. This year there is a competition between the boys and the girls. The winners will get ice cream. Start collecting now!

Harvest Festival - October 20th

The Harvest Festival is a great time for the Heritage Family to gather together and have some fun. Bring the whole family to play games and square dance. We only need a few more volunteers. We need some help with decorating on Friday, the 19th and hosting for a short time during the evening. Take a look at the sign-up list here and let us know if you can help with one shift.

Colonial Outfits Needed

Mrs. Arri’s American Republic class will be putting on a Colonial Ball. She is in need of some colonial style outfits to borrow. If you have something that her class can have or borrow, email her to let her know. Please send any outfits (full or partial) in the next week. Also, please include a note if you'd like your items back after the ball. Here is a link to Mrs. Arri's email.

Spirit Week is Next Week

Spirit week is October 15-19! Students and faculty are encouraged to dress up for our daily themes.

Monday - Hoodie and Sweats Day

Wear your favorite hoodie and sweats! The sweats can have nothing written on them.

Wednesday - Crazy Sock Day

Wear the craziest socks you have. Don't have any crazy socks? Then just mismatch them.

Friday - Twin Day

Find a friend or two to dress identically with.

* Students who wish not to participate can wear Spirit Wear and jeans; otherwise please dress according to the dress code. As always we expect each of our students to dress with modesty in mind.

Tardy Policy Reminder

The family manual says, "All tardies are considered unexcused. Please remember that three tardies generate one absence." Parents, please remind your students to be on time to each class.

Student Success Center Going Strong!

The Student Success Center is a place where students can get tutoring for any number of subjects. The center is led by Mrs. Pam Tamerius. You can make an appointment for your student on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 1 pm to 3 pm. Mrs. Tamerius has helped multiple elementary and secondary students in Algebra, History, Science, Organization, Reading, and English. If you have questions or want to make an appointment email Mrs. Tamerius. The cost is $20 for a one-hour session and $30 for a two-hour session.

Dress Code Reminder

The family manual states that boys must wear, "collared shirts with sleeves" and girls must wear, "nice shirts with sleeves or with a cardigan." Plain colored t-shirts are not considered "nice shirts" by themselves. Also if a student wears a fleece, hoodie, or jacket, to class, the shirt underneath it must still meet dress code specifications. The fleece or hoodie can have a small logo, but no logos or words across the entire front of the jacket, fleece, or hoodie. If a student is not meeting dress code specifications we will have them call their parents to request a dress code appropriate shirt be brought to school.


INCREDIKIDS is our Wednesday morning club that engages all three Heritage age groups! Secondary students volunteer to spend time with the elementary and kindergarten students. This week the rain kept us inside for fall crafts and board games.

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).
