Mrs. Steelman is looking to rehome a few old tablets/iPads, laptops, or even old cellphones (with their charging cords) for use in her classroom. You can wipe/clear all of your data, but they need to have the capability to access the internet. Please bring any donations to the front office for Mrs. Steelman, Room 148.

Did you get a new phone, computer, or tablet for Christmas?

Mrs. Steelman can use your old devices!  

We have THE BEST PTO.

The thought and time put into our staff gift this year was just so beautiful and full of love. We are so very grateful for each of them. Pictures do not do these beautiful, handmade snowflakes justice. Thank you, PTO, you are just simply amazing!

PTO-gift

Any school day, but especially at the beginning of a semester it is important for scholars to be in their seat ready with the things they need at the beginning of the day.  The front desk is experiencing too many scholars coming in late.  Being tardy not only impedes the tardy scholar it disrupts the entire class.  We know that traffic can slow down around 7:40, so please plan accordingly.  Please ensure your scholar is on campus at 7:45 a.m.

BE ON TIME!!

SCHOLARS SHOULD NOT BE SIGNED OUT BETWEEN 2:30-3:30 PM

Need to schedule an appointment for your scholar during school hours? We ask that you try and schedule appointments on Fridays when the scholars are out of school.  We know this isn’t always possible due to days and hours of operation, however due to our driveline, we are not able to sign scholars out after 2:30 pm.  If you have an appointment for your scholar, we will need you to pick them up before 2:30 pm or wait until school is out to pick up your scholar.

Winter High School Sports Season:

High school boys and girls basketball and wrestling are currently in season.  Our varsity basketball teams are both very young, with only three seniors between the boys and girls.  Both teams are developing and have shown exciting early progress.  The boys are 4-4 and the girls are 3-3.  Both teams have some big games coming up.  The boys play at home twice next week (1/9 & 1/12) while the girls are away.  The next varsity girl’s home game is on 1/18.  Admission to varsity games is free when you wear any RED Heritage shirt.

Varsity wrestling is looking to repeat last year’s success and challenge for a state championship.  They have dominated in their early meets.  We will be hosting two upcoming tournaments in our gym on 1/14 and 1/21.  Come check them out!

The girl’s varsity and JH tennis season is set to begin as well.  Coach Robinson is last year’s returning CAA Coach of the Year and is excited to get back on the court with the girls.  She is looking for additional help as these two seasons run side by side.  If you, or someone you know, could be interested in assisting her and the girls, please contact Mr. Miller, Jeffrey.miller@heritageacademyaz.com

Junior High 3rd Quarter Sports:

Our next JH season is starting with girls’ basketball, flag football and tackle football.  Teams have been selected and games will be starting soon.  Coach Miller and O’barr will be leading the girl’s basketball teams and are excited to continue to build the program.  Coach Doscher is back to coach the flag football team with hopes of another championship.  Coach Taylor is getting our JH tackle team ready for their season.

Here are a few upcoming JH home games:

1/11 – Girls Basketball red vs white 4:30p

1/13 – Girls Basketball A team vs LTS Casa Grande 4:30p

1/18 – Flag Football A team vs Red Rock Elem 4:30p

1/20 – Tackle Football vs ALA West Foothills 4:00p

Sports Notices:

January 30th will be Hero Letterman Jacket Day!  We would like to see all varsity athletes, with jackets, wear them to school on that day for a group picture at lunch.

We can always use help with finding coaches and/or assistant coaches.  We have a lot of kids that want to play, and we can offer them more opportunities if we can find more coaches.

If you are interested in finding out more information for yourself or someone you know, please have them contact Coach Miller, Jeffrey.miller@heritageacademyaz.com

Currently, we need help with these teams:

Tennis, Soccer, Track, Basketball

The spring sports high school classes and JH Q4 classes are beginning as well.  They will be in off-season training until the winter season and Q3 seasons are complete.

***WRESTLING NEWS***
