Heritage spirit week is coming October 30th- November 3rdWe hope all of our students participate in this fun week and join us for the dance and open gym on Friday, November 3rd from 3:15-5:00 pm.  Junior high should be a time of growth, social development and making lasting memories.  Let’s make this a week we won’t forget!  There will be a DJ and dancing in the cafeteria and the gym will be open for basketball and sports fun.  The cost is $5 and students can purchase tickets during lunch beginning Monday, Oct. 30th.  Cash only and no ticket sales the day of the dance. Remember, transportation home is not provided….please make arrangements to pick your child up promptly at 5:00 pm.   We hope all of our students can come out and be a part of the fun.  Pizza/concessions will be available for purchase at the event.  Students MUST have their school ID in order to attend.
