Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Heritage Elementary! As we come to the end of our summer break I would like to take the opportunity to welcome everyone back as well as welcome all of our new students and families. We are very fortunate to begin another school year and get the opportunity to start our learning journey together.
This school year will bring about some changes at Heritage. We have some new staff members, as well as some staff members that have changed positions within the school. These changes are exciting and new, much like many of the changes that our students might go through, they also provide an opportunity for growth. Another thing that you might realize is the absence of The Leader In Me in our building. We made the decision to embark on our own and revamp our foundation. So, starting for the 2023 school year we will be Heritage Elementary TIGERS.
We made the decision as a staff last year to start this year fresh with implementing TIGERS for our students. This aligns with our core values as being educators, leaders, parents, continual learners and members of the community. The 6 facets of TIGERS are foundational to being thriving members of our community and future leaders. TIGERS is an acronym and stands for:
Trustworthy • Important • Gracious • Enthusiastic • Ready • Synergize
We will take the time throughout the year to reflect upon these traits and discuss with our students on what they mean, how to use them and how they can look different. We will use TIGER Paws building-wide to recognize students that are using any of the 6 traits.
We are all looking forward to another great year at Heritage Elementary, and we will look forward to continuing to form relationships with our students, parents and community. On behalf of all of our staff, we look forward to seeing you during our Welcome Back night as well as having a safe and successful school year.
— Mr. Rice, Principal
