Good day, Heritage Families,smiley

I hope everyone is having a great Friday afternoon and that you are getting ready to enjoy a fabulous fall weekend.  If your plans include the tonight’s Westerville South versus Westerville North football game, please be kind, be positive, and act with Husky PRIDE in mind! yes

⇒Here’s a look back at another great week at Heritage Middle School:

  1. Many of our students enjoyed a Lunch and Learn session this week with David Grant, wrestling coach at Westerville North HS, who talked about PRIDE and what it means to have grit! Pizza was served and a lot was learned.

  2. We had an informative PTSA meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 6:30pm during which we talked about the latest, the greatest, and the upcoming events at Heritage Middle School. If you’re not a member of our PTSA or you haven’t come to a PTSA meeting, you’re always invited!

  3. We had our first “Coffee with Dr. Dru” and “Afternoon Tea with Tomlin” sessions on Wednesday, as well, for any parents who had questions, concerns, ideas, etc.  We had a great discussion and enjoyed coffee, tea, cookies and more! Our next one will be November 8th, so mark that on your calendar.

  4. Our 7th and 8th grade football teams finished their 2017 season on Thursday, and both teams represented Heritage very well.  In fact, our 8th grade team concluded the season with a perfect record! No losses. Only wins! Because that is how Huskies do it on the field! Way to go!


⇒Looking ahead to next week, here are some key events and Husky things to know:

  1. On Monday, 10/16, PRIDE Quarter 1 Applications will be available in the front office.  Please remind your student to pick one up and fill it out, so they can get awesome prizes.

  2. Monday, 10/16 from 6-8:30pm is also the SkateZone night for Heritage MS.  Proceeds from the night will go back to the school, so you are encouraged to roll the night away with PRIDE!

  3. Thursday, 10/19 is an Early Release Day, so school will end at 1:45pm. Our teachers and staff will be engaged in vital professional learning that afternoon.

  4. And Friday, 10/20 is a Teacher Workday, so there is no school for students. However, all students are encouraged to keep learning alive by reading independently at home! At least 30 minutes of reading a day keeps the brain Husky Healthy!

We’re looking forward to another wonderful week of Husky PRIDE.  As always, thanks for everything you’re doing at your house to support what we’re going here at the school house! We Are Heritage! We are Husky Strong!
