From The Principal:

 

Thanks to all of the Heritage community who came out to  partner with us during our fall parent-teacher conferences.  We hope that you found conferences to be informative and helpful for ensuring your son/daughter's success this school year.  If you were unable to attend conferences, please contact your child's teachers to get an update concerning his/her progress or to set up a meeting. 

Please keep in mind Utica Community Schools will continue to message important school-related information such as delayed openings, school closures or transportation concerns through a number of resources, including local media outlets.  We realize texting may be the preferred method for some families regarding UCS updates.  Heritage Junior High School and Utica Community Schools have a service for parents who would like information texted directly to them.  To join this system, please text “Y” to 67587

Don't forget there is NO SCHOOL, Tuesday, November 5th.  This is a professional development day for teachers and staff.  Please plan accordingly. 

Our Hornets know what it means to be kind and caring! We're in full swing, giving back to the community through our Pasta for Pennies fundraiser.  All proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Donations are being collected 4th hour, now through November 1st. 

Mark your calendar now for our Winter Wonderland Dance! We hope all of our students will come ready to have big fun!  The dance is scheduled for Friday, December 13th from 3:00-5:00.  Stay tuned for more details.   


Warm regards,

Mrs. Beebe
