Good Morning Huskies! Today is Friday, January 12. We are on a “B” schedule today!
The word of the month is attitude. Everyone needs to have a good attitude today!
Ski Club Monday will be our first trip to Snow Trails. Since there is no school, we will spend the entire day on the slopes! We will meet in front of Heritage at 11:45 am for a noon departure. We will leave Snow Trails at 7 pm and arrive back at Heritage at 8 pm. Be sure that you have a ride to and from the school. Dress appropriately and remember to pack a lunch or bring money to buy lunch at Snow Trails. If you are unable to attend Monday’s trip, please see Ms. Gray or Mrs. Might
WPL Visit: Get ready 6th graders! Makayla from the Westerville Public LIbrary will be here next Tuesday for book club. Make sure to get a ticket from your language arts teachers. That ticket is your front of the line pass. Come to the media center during your lunch to hear about all the awesomeness that is happening at WPL!
Drama Club Rehearsal is cancelled for today! An email and remind notification will be sent with schedule changes!
Our Huskies had another great showing at Hastings Middle School on Wednesday. Winning matches were Karson Lane, Connor Warthman, Tyler O’Rielly, and Nick Schmidt - Way to go boys!
The 7th grade boys lost a hard fought battle against Blendon last night 42-59. A strong defense and stellar offense helped close the gap and our Huskies played their best game of the season. Scoring for the Huskies were Jordan Graham with 20 points, Tanner Hughes with 11 points, Gavin Conley with 4, Nick Peters with 3, and Benny Ohle, Micah Harrison, and Kayden Robinson each adding 2 points each. Our Huskies play our neighborhood rival Walnut Springs this Tuesday.
SAY SOMETHING WEEK at Heritage Middle School
During the week of October 30 - November 3, your child will be taking part in “Say Something Week” at Heritage Middle School. As part of this initiative, we will be discussing how to recognize warning signs, signals and threats of potential violence and the importance of taking action by telling a trusted adult.
Please know that our participation in this program is not due to any immediate concerns or perceived threats to our school. Rather, this is a message we continually reinforce with our students and now there is a national initiative that provides additional resources for our use.
We know at times it can be difficult for adults to know how a child is feeling. Today, many teens and adolescents turn to print, video and online channels to express themselves – their thoughts and hopes, but also their anxieties and personal feelings. Some even go as far as hinting at hurting themselves or someone else. Their friends and peers - the eyes and ears of a school and community - may see these communications, but may not always understand what they are seeing or know what to do with that information.
Say Something teaches all of this. We encourage you to talk to your child about Say Something and share what they have learned. Not only will this conversation help you learn to recognize any signs in your own child’s expressions, but it demonstrates to them that you also take this subject seriously and can be one of the trusted adults your child turns to if they suspect someone may need help.
Schools are extremely safe places and Say Something will help keep our young people and community safe. Additional information about Say Something is available online at http://www.sandyhookpromise.org. We’re also including a parent brochure for your use and have attached for your review the survey we will give to students before and after their participation in the Say Something program. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Jessica Martin at 614-797-6633.
