For the Week of December 14, 2015
Help Our HMS Community
Dear HMS Families,
On December 5th, an apartment fire in Euless destroyed the homes and belongings of a dozen students attending Bear Creek Elementary, Heritage Middle School and Colleyville Heritage High School.
To assist, GCISD is partnering with CONNECT to collect gift card donations from retailers such as Wal-Mart or Target to help provide immediate resources to these children and their families.
If you would like to make a gift card donation, please drop it off with counselors at BCES, HMS or CHHS. Monetary donations are being accepted online through the Grapevine-Colleyville Education Foundation. Include a note in your online donation that the funds are for CONNECT-Euless Fire.
Thank you for your support,
Scott Saettel, Principal
Heritage Middle School
