Hello Heritage Families,

We are excited about the end of the year being just around the corner.  We appreciate each and every one of you that has encouraged your scholar, helped with homework, given rides, packed lunches, volunteered at school and simply made it so the school year runs smoothly.  Thank you!  We see your efforts and sincerely appreciate them.  It’s the time of year we get to recognize scholars for their many accomplishments.

We have end of the year banquets, performances, games, dances and activities.  We know many of our scholars are involved in more than one of these events.  We try to schedule with as little conflict as possible, but we know it’s not always easy.  We hope you read this newsletter each week as it will provide you with all necessary dates.

As our awards ceremony is around the corner, we want to let everyone know how this works.  Our last day of school will be a partial day for each scholar.  Our Junior High Awards Ceremony (for grades 6-8) will be from 8:00-9:30 am in our gym.  This will include 8th grade promotion where each scholar will receive their certificate for completing the 8th grade.  Due to space, we are not able to have parents attend our awards ceremonies, so we will livestream for families.  Our high school scholars will be celebrated from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm.  Scholars should plan to be on campus only for their awards ceremony.

In addition we want to make parents and guardians aware that we do give an honor roll certificate.  The Honor Roll at Heritage Maricopa is 3.75 and above.  Please understand we try diligently to not make any mistakes on any of our awards.  If, for any reason, you feel your scholar deserved an award that was not presented please be courteous, kind and let us know.  We will gladly look into any issue we may have missed.  

Honor-Roll

We look forward to celebrating our scholar’s achievements!
