Meet-the-Teacher

Heritage Academy welcomes Mrs. Audrey Wilson to the Maricopa Campus as our 6th grade science teacher and Mrs. Taylor Alvey as our choir accompanist.

Untitled

Mrs. Wilson was born and raised in the great state of Texas. She married the love of her life over 26 years ago.  They have 5 children and 1 granddaughter.  She enjoys singing, playing the piano, reading, and camping. She plays a mean game of Scrabble and is always ready to face off with a new challenger.

Mrs. Wilson holds a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University.

Taylor-2018

Mrs. Alvey is the oldest of five children born in Southern California and lived there until she was nine-years-old.  When she was five, she went with her grandma to pick up her uncle from his guitar lesson.  While they waited, she found a group piano class and saw a young boy playing the piano with no sheet music in front of him and was intrigued.  She has played the piano for choirs, in talent shows, recitals, accompaniments for different instruments and vocal solos, and can also play some songs with no sheet music.  She has attended many schools in Maricopa, including Maricopa High School where she found a new love of Technical Theater adding a new skill to her music knowledge.

She went to Central Arizona College and got her Associate of Science degree.  Before graduating, she went on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Washington Tacoma mission.  Currently, she is finishing her Bachelor of Mathematics (Statistics) at Arizona State University.  In 2019, she and her husband Jacob were married and in 2021 they had a beautiful, joyful daughter named Erin.

FINE ARTS RETREAT 

The Fine Arts Retreat was a huge success last weekend.  We had scholars attend for band, orchestra, choir, dance, art, photography, puppetry, and musical theatre.  20220105_144304-scaled20220105_143611-scaled  facebook_1642186800873_6887830667650670433 facebook_1642186831868_6887830797654413046 facebook_1642186851284_6887830879088688023 facebook_1642186865835_6887830940121083121 facebook_1642186882637_6887831010595264680 IMG_8116 IMG_8122-rotated IMG_8121-rotated

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Safety-First-scaled

As we drop off and pick up scholars at school, we need to respect our neighbors.  They have been reporting to law enforcement the speeding in the neighborhood, blocking driveways and blowing through stop signs.  All traffic laws should be obeyed on and off campus.

Arrive-Early

Plan to leave home sooner in the morning to get your scholars to school on time.  The closer you arrive to the start of school, the more traffic there will be.  Scholars can be dropped off as early as 7:20.  We do have a strict tardy policy and know that traffic can slow down starting at 7:40.  Please plan accordingly.  

REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR LUNCH!! 
NO OUTSIDE FOOD IS ALLOWED

No-Outside-Food

We have a large number of forgotten lunches that are being dropped off at campus.  Please limit this as much as possible and remind your scholars before they leave the house, to grab their lunch.  NO OUTSIDE FOOD (fast food or delivery) is allowed.  The school does not provide a lunch if your scholar forgets.

Friday-Appointments
All appointments including dentist, doctor, orthodontist, etc. should be scheduled on Fridays or after school.  Fridays are the perfect day since we have it off and your scholar(s) will not miss class time.

PHOTO ID REQUIRED

TO SIGN-OUT YOUR SCHOLAR

PHOTO-IDIf you need to sign-out your scholar, you will be required to show your ID and we will make a copy of it for our records.

COVID19-1

  • If scholars are not feeling well, please keep them home.  Please do a daily check before sending them to school.

  • Scholars who are sick (not with Covid) may return back to school when they have been symptom free for 24 hours. 

  • If scholars test positive for Covid, they should quarantine for 10 days.

  • If scholars are exposed to Covid and remain symptom free, they may attend school.  In the case of exposure from an immediate family member, we ask scholars to quarantine for 10 days.
