Good day, Heritage MS Students and Families,

I hope everyone is doing well and having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for everything you’re doing to support your Husky on the homefront. Please thank your student (on behalf of the entire HMS staff!) for continuing to follow the expectations that we have set at Heritage MS. The start to the school year has been awesome–and it’s because our Huskies are amazing and they are coming to us school-ready! Let’s keep on being #HuskyStrong together!

 Now, here are some Husky Happenings for the week of September 26-30, 2022:

  1. Here is the #HuskyStrong Word of the Week video for this week’s Word, which is Synergy! Check it out and then submit your Word of the Week answer on the #HuskyStrong Google Form. The Word of the Week Google Form is also in your Counselor Connection Course in Schoology! And we’re also continuing the new HOWLanguage Search happening for the prefixes -ir, -il, -im, and -in. Listen and look for words with those prefixes and put them on the HOWLanguage form. Keep all of these submissions going! Our race for the Top House is getting really close–and really exciting! What House will win the end of the 9 weeks House Party? 

  2. Our first Family College session is happening this Wednesday, September 28  at 7pm. Join us in the HMS Media Center or online in Google meet ( CODE=HMSFamilyCollege). In addition to snacks, we’ll be sharing tips and strategies to help your Husky on the homefront with organization, study skills, time management and more! Please fill out this quick Google Form to let us know if you’re planning on attending in-person or online. Got a friend whose kids go to another middle school? Spread the word–they can attend, too!

  3. 8th grade Families! In preparation for the DC trip (happening in May), we will have our first informational meeting this Tuesday, September 27th at 7:00 P.M. in the Heritage Commons/Cafeteria. At our informational meeting, we will cover the following information:

  • Tentative itinerary

  • Payment information

  • Payment options

  • Behavioral requirements for trip

    • If you are unable to attend, a video overview will be provided after the meeting.

  1. The HMS Fall Fundraiser starts this Tuesday, September 27! Be on the lookout for this flier coming home on Tuesday, which will have all of the information you need about this exciting (and rewarding) fundraising opportunity! All proceeds go to help support school initiatives that our Huskies enjoy. 

  2. The PRIDE Store is looking for donations! Please drop off party boxes of chips or candy to the front office–and thank you for supporting our Huskies as they earn those PRIDE tickets and HOWL for success.

  3. Husky “Next Level” Athletics this week! Best of luck to our HMS scholar-athletes--and to all of our Huskies who also participate in club sports!

    • Cross Country: Tuesday (9/27 at 5pm) vs. Worthington Wolves

    • Football: Monday (9/26 at 5:00pm) vs. Worthington McCord MS (at WNHS)--7th grade only!
