Athletics Packet & Physical:

If your scholar is on a sports team, they need to complete a sports physical and the athletic packet.  Both can be found on our ATHLETICS SITE.  They will be ineligible to compete until these forms are turned in.

Grade Checks:

Heritage Academy holds high academic standards for their athletes.  To be considered academically eligible for competitive play, scholars must be passing all classes with a 70% or higher.

We will conduct a grade check next week to review eligibility.  Our coaches are constantly reviewing grades and are willing to work with the scholars in any way to help them improve their grades.  Scholars should be advocating for themselves by discussing opportunities for tutoring or turning in late work if it is allowed by class policy.

This week in Mrs. Sims’ 7th grade science class the scholars were practicing measurement in science. They determined the volume and mass of crayons and rocks. They measured Kleenex boxes and their tables using a meter stick. In addition, they learned how to use triple beam balance scales and how to read the levels of granulated cylinders.

Artwork done by our creative heroes last week. Scholars in Mr. Jimenez’s class were taught additional creative and effective techniques for creating a rose drawing. These were drawn with 4B graphite pencils, and an emphasis was placed on the elements LINE, SPACE, SHAPE, and the principal of CONTRAST. Each drew the same rose; however, each looks different because everyone had their own interpretation of that image. They have all developed/discovered their artistic style already!
