COURSE REQUEST FORMS DUE TUESDAY 2/18
Your scholar(s) received a Course Request Form (CRF) on Thursday at school. This form is an important tool in determining their schedule of classes for the coming school year. If your scholar is going into 7th grade, they should have a green CRF. If they are going into 8th grade, they should have a pink CRF, and if they are going into 9-12 grade, they should have a white CRF.
Most of you will likely be somewhat familiar with the CRF – it is similar to the form you used last year to request classes when you registered for school.
Over the weekend, I invite you to spend some time with your scholar(s) and fill out their CRF. They should return their CRF to their English teacher during class next Tuesday. If your scholar was absent from school today, then they should report to Mr. Halterman first-thing Tuesday morning to get their CRF, and then have it completed and turned in directly to Mr. Halterman on Wednesday.
RIVAL GAME BRINGS VICTORY TO OUR HEROES

Last week, Maricopa witnessed what was one of the best nights of basketball our town has seen in recent memory!
Our Heritage Heroes took on our rivals, Sequoia Pathway in not one, but two down to the wire games!
The night began with the JV Heroes pulling off the huge upset defeating Pathway in a narrow victory. The team was led in scoring by Synorris Harrison Jr. and Diego Cerecer. Sophomore Treyden Hoffman had several steals defensively including one to seal the game. Coach Fethkenher said following the game, “He was the difference maker for us tonight. If not for Treyden, we probably wouldn’t have won that game!”
The Varsity game had all of the components of a classic. The stands were packed at Ak-Chin. Both sides had full support of their fans as the gymnasium was standing room only.
Pathway took the early lead and would hold onto it for the majority of the game. Finally, midway into the third quarter the Heroes took the lead on a deep three pointer from Josh Deakyne. The Heroes built up a 15 point lead until the Pumas came roaring back. The tied the game with 15 seconds to go. Malik Charles tipped out a key offensive rebound to Carson Carpenter who hit the game winning shot with 3 seconds to go!
The Heroes were led in scoring by Logan Porter with 21 points, Ahmari Moody with 19 points, and Josh Deakyne with 16 points.
Now the Heroes prepare for the final match between them and Pathway this weekend in the first round of the state playoffs!
