Good day, Heritage Students and Families! 

First, I want to thank everyone for a great start to the school year. Not only did our 6th graders do an amazing job last Thursday with 6th grade only day, but our 7th and 8th graders also showed plenty of Husky PRIDE on Friday when they came to school, too. Of course, our Heritage MS teachers and staff know that our successful start was because of your support on the homefront--because you got your kids excited and ready for school. Our Heritage families are the best! In fact, a big time thanks to everyone who was able to come out to Heritage MS on August 11 from 8:15-9:15am for our Family Sessions. We’ll be sending out recorded versions of those presentations soon. Thank you so much for everything you’re doing to help your Husky! With the first full week of school ahead of us, let’s stay #HuskyStrong together!


Here are some Husky Happenings for the week of August 15-19, 2022:

  1. Please check out the #HuskyStrong Word of the Week video about the word Opportunity. And every Husky is encouraged to submit their thoughts on the #HuskyStrong Word of the Week Google Form by Friday, August 19. This form will also be in every students’ Counselor Connection Course in Schoology. Every submission is worth 10 points for your House, Huskies!

  2. If your student is participating in Fall Sports, please remember these critical dates coming up:

    • Monday, August 15 at 6pm in the HMS Gym: Family Fall Sports Meeting with Mrs. Dobbins

    • Thursday, August 18: Fall Sports Picture Day from 3:15-5:45pm

    • Thursday, August 18 at 3:50pm HMS Golf vs. Big Walnut MS at Table Rock Golf Club. Go get ‘em, Huskies!

  3. Next week, August 22-26 the Scholastic Book Fair will be held in our Media Center. Students will have the opportunity to browse and purchase books and other reading-related materials. If you have questions about the Book Fair, email Mrs. Konik at

  4. Be sure to put August 25 from 6-8pm on your calendars! It’s Curriculum Night at Heritage MS. Stay tuned for more details about this exciting event–where you’ll get to walk your student’s schedule and meet their terrific teachers!

  5. All families are encouraged to join our awesome PTSA crew by going to the Heritage MS website . The first PTSA meeting of the year will be virtual on Tuesday, August 31 at 6:30pm. Stay tuned for the online meeting information!  


We’re looking forward to the bright road ahead with our #HuskyStrong students. In addition to checking PowerSchool, please continue to ask your child about what they got to do at school--and then really listen. Middle school kids may not always act like it, but they really want to know that you genuinely care about their learning and social lives. It’s also great for families to hear about the amazing lessons and activities our teachers are planning for your scholars! Need some help talking with your Husky? Contact one of our counselors and/or check out this brief article about mistakes families sometimes make when talking with their middle schooler. With all of that in mind, keep your eyes on the prize and seize every day with kindness, excellence, safety, and Husky PRIDE! Let’s keep HOWLing for Success in 22-23!


#HuskyStrong All Year Long,

Dr. Tomlin and your Heritage MS Family
