Good day, Heritage Families, smiley

It’s Friday, May 18th and it’s time for the Principal’s Message.  I wish you and yours a warm and wonderful weekend--as we launch into the final week of school next week!

Here’s what we accomplished this week at the Home of the Huskies:

  1. The final MODEL group meeting of the year happened on Monday, May 14 at noon in our Media Center. Again, we appreciate all of the mentors who dedicated their time this year to raise up our scholars!

  2. On Tuesday, May 15, 159 eighth graders left for their annual learning journey to Washington, D.C. They returned on Friday, May 18th--filled with wonderful field trip knowledge! Thanks to the trip chaperones and to all of the students, who demonstrated tremendous Husky PRIDE throughout the trip. We received countless compliments about our students’ behavior. Bravo!

  3. On Tuesday, May 15 at 7pm, our 6th and 7th grade Orchestras performed their final concert of the year at Westerville South High School. Thanks to Mr. Stevens on a wonderful concert and year in orchestra!

  4. On Wednesday, May 16 at 7am, we kept the music going with our 6th grade Choir concert. It was another stellar musical performance. Thanks to Mrs. Marcum for a great event and a tremendous year in Choir.

Here are some key events and Husky things to know for this next week:

  1. On Monday, May 21 at 4:30pm, we’ll hold our final Afternoon Tea with Dr. Tomlin session. This event will primarily be for families of rising 5th grade students, but anyone is welcome! We’ll discuss strides we made this year, changes for next year, and your questions, concerns, ideas and more!

  2. On Tuesday, May 22 we’ll have two big events:

    • During the day, our 6th and 7th graders will hold their annual field day outside to celebrate the end of a successful school year.

    • And at 6:30pm, we’ll have our Spring Sports Banquet to celebrate our athletes for their efforts and triumphs this season.  If you have a student who was on a team this Spring, please attend! If you have any questions, please reach out to our Athletic Director, Dan Church.

  3. On Wednesday, May 23, we’ll have three big events, as well:

    • During the day, our 8th graders will walk to Highlands Pool and enjoy a refreshing  dip in the water;

    • Our 6th and 7th graders will have their annual Awards Ceremonies from 1-2pm. Thanks to any families who can attend to join their students in this celebration.

    • And in the evening at 6:30pm, our 8th graders will hold their Evening of Excellence awards celebration, where we honor students who’ve exhibited Husky PRIDE in many areas and wish them well as they travel on to high school.

  4. Finally, on Thursday, May 24, we’ll celebrate the end of the school year with a day filled with celebration, fun, and good times! With all of that said, the expectations are the same on the last day of school. Students should continue to show their Husky PRIDE and be HuskyStrong all day long!

So we’re looking forward to another wonderful week of Husky PRIDE.  Thank you for everything you do at your house to support what we do at the school house. As we say at Heritage: Keep your eyes on the prize and seize every day with kindness, excellence, and Husky PRIDE! We Are Heritage! We are Husky Strong!
