While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."

- Genesis 8:22

Message from Mrs. Hierholzer

Dear Heritage Family,

Many thanks for your cards, food, kind words, and prayers. Students — your giant heart of hearts touched my heart deeply. The body of Christ has truly upheld me and my family during our time of grief. Thank you, I love you all.

Mrs. Hierholzer


Grammar School

Mrs. Brantley gave the wonderful lesson that we are all the "same but different!" She used the example that M&M's look different from the outside, but once you eat them taste the same. We may look different, but are same in that we each have God's love inside of us. 
Drawing from Mrs. Brantley's words, kindergarten enjoyed eating their M&M's while writing and creating a picture of themselves. 

Upper School

Kenny Johnson (Heritage Class of 2012) spoke to upper school about the value of being vulnerable, and forgiving yourself for feeling frustrated, lost, or anxious about life. He explained that being honest with others about your issues is healthy, but that it is not a free pass to be a complainer. Kenny also led us in prayer and beautiful music on his guitar - thanks Kenny!

Heritage Upper School
Classes Change

Dear upper school families,

As you may have seen in last week’s Herald, Mr. Stephen Mackintosh has said farewell to Heritage School to pursue a job opportunity in Charlottesville, Virginia. We will miss Mr. "Mack" greatly - his positive, loving attitude, his individuality, and of course, his piano playing! The cogs and wheels of cause and effect have already started to turn as we are implementing an “in-house solution” to the HUGE HOLE that he will leave in our Upper School teaching team.

Mrs. Brantley is taking over 6-8th grade Latin classes. Mrs. Brantley has taught Latin previously and is looking forward to the opportunity to get back to it!
Mrs. Sultemeier is taking over the 6th grade English class and Mr. Coach Borrer is taking the 6th-grade History class.  Mrs. Sultemeier has previously taught all levels of English classes here at Heritage.  Mr. Coach Borrer has previously taught History at a variety of grade levels during his career.

Mr. Sultemeier is taking on the high school classes including Environmental Science, Church History and Apologetics, all of which he has taught previously here at Heritage.  In order for him to do that, Mrs. Coach Borrer is taking on the 6th and 7th-grade math classes, as well as Mrs. Brantley’s Quiet Study Hall.  Mrs. Coach Borrer has previously taught math at a variety of grade levels as well.

We are grateful for Mr. Mackintosh’s time here at Heritage and blessed that God has provided us with experienced faculty to fill the gaps this school year.

Kindergarten's "Zero the Hero"

Zero the Hero, a.k.a. Molly Hoover, was thrilled to deliver zero-shaped snacks to Kindergarten on Thursday, the 30th day of school. 

“Zero takes the space, so the other numbers stay in their place.”

Mrs. Ivers Does It All

Mrs. Ivers is not only an amazing art teacher, she is also a wonderful cook and game organizer. On Wednesday, she ate and played with all the students while the teachers enjoyed a delicious meal that she had prepared. Students were all smiles playing a large group game of “red rover.”

Fourth Grade's
"Great Pumpkin Experiment"

Fifth Grade Math Races and Essays

Fifth graders couldn’t get enough of their "board races" to find the greatest common factors. 
Each student in fifth grade picked an unusual picture and wrote a descriptive essay. As each student read his or her essay to the class, classmates tried to correctly choose the picture being described. 

Seniors Finish "Great Speeches"

The seniors finished delivering their “Great Speeches” in character. Rounding out the speeches were:
  • Faith Lindner as Malala, delivering her Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech (2014)
  • Sam Richburg as Ronald Reagan, delivering his Challenger Disaster Address (1986)
  • Livy Jons as Greta Thunburg, delivering her How Dare You Speech (2019)
  • Olivia Loggie as Amelia Earhart, delivering her A Woman’s Place in Science Speech (1935)
  • Not pictured is Katie Chastain, as Mahatma Gandhi. Katie’s delivery of Gandhi’s Quit India Speech was so powerful, so stirring, that it caused the photographer to neglect his duties. My apologies!

Cross Country

Some of our Heritage cross country team competed this last Saturday at the Feast Invitational in San Antonio. It was a very fast course with some unbelievable talent as the meet had over five hundred runners through six different races. The kids competed really hard and only hope to get much better from here on out. Joshua Tabor finished in a 19:43, Mady Smith ran her course in a 17:26, taking a minute off her season best from just last week. Wyatt Burnett ran an amazing 16:03, taking off over two whole minutes from his personal best. The cross country team will race again on Oct. 10 in Round Rock at the Concordia Invitational.

Coach’s Comments: “With only 2 returning players from last year’s team, we have spent the past month building a team from the ground up. In truth, we had no idea how we would stack up against the more experienced teams in our league. This past Thursday, we got our answer against a bigger, deeper team in Round Rock Christian Academy. In true Heritage form, our team stayed focused on what we could control and were not bothered by the size or depth of our opponent. To pick up a win in a classic 6-man shootout is an exhilarating experience and I am thankful that these young men got to experience that.

We certainly found things that can be improved (there always are!) and we intend to keep improving each week. But I’d be lying if I said that I was not feeling very good about our team right now!”

– Matt Roberts, Head Coach

On the game vs Leakey
I couldn't be more proud of the guts that our guys played with. This was week 1 for us and week 5 for Leakey. Leakey is an incredible football team and we played toe to toe with them. We played physical. We didn't get our heads down when we made mistakes. It is never fun to lose and we are upset at the loss, but we will get better in all three phases of the game. Every mistake we made in this game is fixable. I was happy with the way the team handled all the extra-curricular activities at school this week and came out focused.  We have to execute better on offense but we were throwing our bodies around.  Every player refused to give up even when their bodies wanted to.  

On key plays of the game
There were probably 20 or so plays in this game that could have created a much different outcome in the score. It is important for the players to see that we are on a season long journey. There were a ton of great things we did tonight. Leakey is #6 in the state for a reason. We had our opportunities, and I can promise you we will get much better. The boys know that and they are bought into the system.

Game ended in the 3rd quarter due to the 45 point mercy rule
On the game last night
I was very proud of the way the team handled the first road trip, and it was a long one at that. Plano is a good team and we came out and dictated the tempo of the game. We improved in many areas and we still have not reached our potential. A long road trip the week after playing an extremely intense game and being relatively young in places typically would be a recipe for some real let downs, but the guys didn't allow that to happen. They stayed focused and were methodical. They see places they can be better at and that is the first step in doing just that. These young men played with great character despite dominating on the scoreboard.

On the district game vs Cedar Park
This is certainly a unique matchup in that we are in week 3 and playing a big district game. Everybody is in the same boat, however, so that factor goes out of the window. Both of these teams returned a core from last year's teams. I feel good where we are and about the work our team has put in to prepare for this game. This is not an end-all game like playing Cedar Park last year in the semi finals. However, it will go a long ways into determining the district race.  Cedar Park is coached by first year coach Kyle Stegall. We have respect for Cedar Park and their speed. Every week, not just this week, we have to be ready to take the opposing team's best shot. We are Freddy and the defending state champs. We expect and are ready to play the best football we have played to this point in the season.
