The holiday season is upon us and our semester will end in only two weeks!
Teacher Retirements: We have several teachers leaving us in December. Letters were sent out to all 7th, 8th, 11th, and 12th grade families communicating these changes as it directly impacts scholars in their classes. We understand that change is hard and appreciate your cooperation as we put pieces in place to ensure all scholars continue to receive an outstanding education.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
Vaunie Capps is retiring after 17 years as our 7th grade English teacher.
Rick Bryson is retiring after 5 years as our U.S. Government/Economics teacher.
Seth Chambers, our Latin II teacher, is leaving.
Winter Formal will be held on Friday, December 10 at the Wright House. Scholars and their guests are expected to uphold Heritage dress and grooming standards.
Formal dance attire from the handbook:
Young men should wear suits, tuxedos, or collared shirts, ties, and slacks
Dresses are to have sleeves. Shawls may not be used in place of sleeves, and any bolero or shrug-type jacket should not be removed during the dance, including for pictures.
Necklines must not reveal cleavage.
The backs of dresses should be above mid-back.
Midriffs should not be revealed.
All dresses must come to the knee, in the front and the back, when sitting or standing.
If your scholar is bringing a date who does not attend Heritage, a guest pass must be filled out and turned in to Ms. Seaman, by Thursday, December 9.
Also, tickets will not be sold at the door. They can be purchased every day during lunch next week.
Bell Schedule: It looks like there will not be any changes to our bell schedule in the near future. We will continue to start school at 7:45 a.m. and end at 3:40 p.m. Thank you for making the needed adjustments in your schedules.
We do need your help on getting scholars to school on time. Each morning, we have a long line of scholars who arrive tardy. We’d like to solve this problem. Any ideas? Meloney Rogers, who tracks our attendance, will be sending out letters to those who have excessive tardies. I will set up appointments with families to see how we can help.
Finishing the year:
Open Enrollment for next year continues through December 31, 2021. If you have friends, neighbors, or siblings of current scholars who want to attend Heritage, invite them to get their applications in before the end of the year!
Please check your scholars’ grades in PowerSchool today. We don’t like families to be surprised when their scholars fail classes. To pass a class at Heritage, a 70% or better is needed. Letters will go out this week to all families whose scholars are failing one or more classes. Please reach out to teachers if you have concerns. If your scholar needs academic support, our teachers have tutoring hours established. I know many scholars come early or stay after school each day for tutoring.
Fees for 2nd semester classes will be assessed next week. Log into MySchoolBucks to see your invoices for class fees. Fees can be paid between December 6 – January 3. All fees are due by the end of the school day on Monday, January 3, 2022.
2nd semester schedules can be found in PowerSchool.
Some scholars carry around very heavy backpacks. Lockers are available. Check in with the front desk to get a locker.
We remain vigilant in our sanitizing and cleaning protocols to keep all scholars, faculty and staff safe.
We love your support and feedback. It helps us improve every day.
