HES Boosterthon Dance Fit Fundraiser
Dear Heritage families,
Our Boosterthon Heritage Elementary DanceFit will kick off in just 3 weeks on Monday, 4/26. Our goal is to strengthen our school community by having fun, inspiring our students to live with character, and to raise funds to improve our school. This years event will be done virtually due to COVID19 restrictions.
Here’s what all students can get excited about:
· Fun, engaging character development lessons
· A high-energy event to give our school a much-needed boost of fun!
If your family feels it’s not in the position to financially support the school, that’s ok. Families can actually support our school by also SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and family online. Sharing IS supporting.
Key dates to remember:
• Donating Opens – 4/12

All donations will go toward technology needs, manipulatives/resources and programs for HES students and teachers. Thank you for supporting Heritage through the Heritage Elementary DanceFit.

Synergize is the habit of study for the month of April here at Heritage Elementary School. Synergize is defined as the habit of creative cooperation. This habit is about teamwork. It is about accomplishing tasks together and knowing that we can create better solutions together than any one of us can alone. Habit 6 is also about valuing other people’s strengths, getting along well with others, and learning from one another. Synergy buzzes all over our campus daily. Synergizing teaches us that working together is better. Synergizing is teamwork and we are all on the same team!
