Good day, Heritage Families,smiley

It’s Friday, April 6 and it’s time for the Principal’s Message.  I hope everyone enjoyed a great start back to school after Spring Break. We were all excited to see our Huskies again and to get ready for the rest of the year!

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

  1. On Tuesday, April 3rd, we held assemblies in every grade level lunch period to discuss the upcoming Ohio State Tests and expectations for those critical assessments. I’ve included a video version of that presentation for you to watch and review with your student. Just click here:

  2. On Wednesday, April 4th, we were supposed to have our first home Track & Field meet of the season against Gahanna South, but Mother Nature brought more winter weather our way. It will be rescheduled soon--stay tuned!

  3. And on Friday, April 6th, our Huskies were treated to an exciting, inspiring assembly to get them pumped up and ready for the Ohio State Tests!  Mr. Corey Jones helped our Huskies see the connection between playing basketball and doing our best on the test. It was a great time!

And this is where we need your help on the homefront. Please help us get your child ready for these tests--this is their chance to show the world what they’re made of and to demonstrate what #HuskyStrong is all about!

The OST testing dates are as follows:

  • April 10: 8th grade ELA
  • April 11: 7th grade ELA
  • April 12: 6th grade ELA
  • April 17: 8th grade Math
  • April 18: 7th grade Math
  • April 19: 6th grade Math
  • April 24: 8th grade Science

Each test will take place from 8am to approximately 10:45am. Please keep these dates and times in mind when making appointments and checking out your student from school for any reason. In addition, make sure your student gets plenty of rest the night before the test and starts the day positively and with a good breakfast.  Talking positively about these tests on the home front is so important! We appreciate your help!

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

1. Here’s the OST testing schedule for this week:

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!
