An Invitation to Heritage Families

MOA-icons-header

10 August 2022

Dear Parents and Friends of Heritage Academy,

Welcome to another school year. Even though we have seen many changes in scholars, teachers, and campuses throughout the 28 years since being one of the first charter schools in Arizona, we can assure you that our commitment to our mission has not changed. In part, our mission statement says:

“While teaching the academic disciplines, Heritage Academy is dedicated to instilling into the minds and hearts of today’s youth a knowledge of and respect for the ideals and values of the  great men and women of history, including those who founded the American nation.

“As today’s rising generation gains an appreciation of these people of accomplishment, they will be ready to provide selfless service to their fellow citizens and to their country which will be required in the coming years to assist in preserving America’s greatness. Heritage Academy exists to this end.”

One of the methods we have to ensure that all our staff understands our mission is to require all  employees to attend a Making of America Seminar at least once every three years. This one-day seminar  explores where America’s Founders got their good ideas and how they implemented them into our founding documents. This exciting story of America’s beginning reveals that the Founders had answers to nearly every problem we have in America today. It is a story that is sadly not taught in most schools today, hence, the social confusion which exists.

In today’s climate where parents are becoming increasingly alarmed when learning what is sometimes taught to their children in many schools, and in the spirit of openness, we are inviting all parents and  interested friends to attend our next regular seminar on Saturday, September 17th. The details are contained in the attached flyer. This seminar will be taught by Earl Taylor, Jr., the founder of Heritage Academy. We guarantee you will be thrilled with the real story of America and be able to make sense of  the social confusion which exists, especially during an election year. It is also timely because September 17th is Constitution Day, being 235 years since the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.

So, we invite you and your friends to be with us. While walk-ins are welcome, we urge you to follow the directions at this site and register your attendance so we can make sure we have enough materials for each attendee. What a great way to start the new school year, especially with your teen-age children.

Regards,

Jared Taylor
Chairman/CEO
Heritage Academy Schools

HERE ARE A FEW REMINDERS:  

  1. Change your scholars grade level under your profile.
  2. Communicate with your scholar if you ordered lunch for them so they know to pick it up.
  3. If a lunch is ordered and not picked up during lunch time, it will be donated.
  4. If your scholar is absent, cancel the order or contact the front office if you want it saved by 10:00 am, otherwise it will be donated.
  5. If you want a friend to pick up your lunch, it must be communicated to the front office by 10:00 am so the records can be updated.
