👩👩🏽‍🦱🏕Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma



Join us as we celebrate Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts. In this fun event, girls in grades K - 5th are invited to bake and decorate a cake with us. We will also make crafts and play games to learn more about Juliette Gordon Low and Girl Scouts.


All attendees registered before October 26th will be able to pick up a birthday bag that will include information, some supplies, and a special Juliette Gordon Low birthday patch. Supplies will not include cake baking and decorating items.


This event is free to attend for girls in K - 5th. Girl Scout members and non-member girls are welcome. A donation box for supplies will be available at the pick up table, if you feel like donating. Suggested amount is $3.00.



A Zoom link will be sent after registration. It will include information on when and where to pick up your birthday bag.

📚〰️Library News 〰️📚

📚DO YOU WANT TO PUT A BOOK ON HOLD?!

We have a new way to look for library books and place them on hold this year. Any Heritage student or teacher may use Destiny Discover to search our online catalog and place books on hold using their ChromeBooks and iPads. We check the hold list each day and prepare the books for check out. Some books may be ready quicker than others due to some books being on our quarantine carts for a few days. It's fast and easy.


Click the button below and log in using the student's username and password. That is the same username and password they use to log on to the iPad or ChromeBook. The log in tab is at the top right hand corner. Books may be placed on hold by clicking the hold tab on the lower corner of the book. Students may place up to 10 items on hold at once.

Please call 726-4964 if you have any questions.


Happy searching,

Mrs. Drees

🏆📚Sequoyah Children’s Book Award

The Sequoyah Book award started in 1959. Children in 3rd-5th grades may read a minimum of three books from the Masterlist and vote for a favorite. Each student who reads 3 books is able to vote at school. We turn our votes in to the Oklahoma Library Association which tallies the votes for the state.

There is a wide range of reading and interest levels on the Masterlist each year. We encourage students to read books that are interesting to them. Students must read 3 titles from the Masterlist in order to vote. Below are titles from 2021 Sequoyah Children’s Masterlist.
