Good morning, Heritage Middle School Students and Families,

First, on behalf of the entire HMS staff, I want to wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving holiday this week. Here’s to a #HuskyStrong and #HuskyHealthy celebration for every Husky--whether you are traveling or staying close to home. Second, we appreciated everyone’s flexibility on Friday when we made a quick pivot to remote learning for our scholars. It was a sudden change that affected plans at HMS and on the homefront; we are grateful for everyone’s patience, understanding, and resilience! Finally, please remind your Husky that the expectations are the same for the next two days as they are for every other day of the year. Let’s enjoy the holiday season but continue to be #HuskyStronger together.

Here are some Husky Happenings and Information for the week of November 22-26, 2021:

  1. Here is the #HuskyStrong Action Challenge video, which is once again about the word Gratitude! Check it out and then encourage your Husky to complete the #HuskyStrong Action Challenge Google Form by Tuesday, November 23. Here are the number of thankful messages that have been submitted so far: Adventurers (11), Aviators (18), Odyssey (61!). 

  2. REMINDER: Every Heritage MS student needs to sign the WCS Code of Conduct in PowerSchool. Our records show that only a small number of students have done this. If you haven’t already signed the Code of Conduct with your Husky, please do so as soon as possible. Directions are here.  

  3. Thanksgiving Break is Wednesday (11/24) through Friday (11/26). See you back at Heritage MS on Monday, November 29!

  4. Husky “Next Level” Athletics this week! 

    • Basketball: Tuesday (11/23) at 5pm. Boys basketball vs. Gahanna East at home. Girls basketball at 5pm vs. Gahanna East away. 

    • Need information about the upcoming Winter Sports Season? Check out our HMS Athletics Page today!

Once again, hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday starting on Wednesday. We are definitely grateful for our awesome Heritage MS families! Please feel free to reach out at any time to me via email ( or via phone at 614-797-6610 if you have questions, concerns, ideas, etc. Keep your eyes on the prize and seize every day with kindness, excellence, safety, and Husky PRIDE!

#HuskyStronger Together,

Dr. Tomlin and your Heritage MS Family

Happy Thanksgiving!
