UCS Update - September 13
The latest news from across UCS

From The Principal:


The 2019-2020 school year is off to a great start!  To our 7th grade families we welcome you and hope your student has had a successful transition to junior high school.  I’m amazed at how quickly they are learning to navigate their way around the building and most have figured out their locker combinations within the first few days of the school year! J  Our returning 8th and 9th grade students seem to be back in the swing of things and are happy to be reunited with their friends.  As always, our teachers are keeping students engaged and there is great energy in our halls and in our classrooms. 


I hope to see our parent community out for Heritage Open House, Wednesday, September 11th @ 6:30pm.  We will start with introductory remarks in the cafeteria before parents have an opportunity to visit their student’s classrooms, meet the teachers and learn about each course and classroom expectations. I’m excited to meet our Hornet families and share some of the news that makes Heritage a great place to grow and learn. 

Let’s make this school year our best year yet!

Warm regards,

Mrs. Beebe
