Volume 27 Number 21  |  2/5/2020
On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
Mark 2:17

Shakespeare Day

Grammar School's 2021 Shakespeare Day took place last Friday. It commenced with music from a band of Logic and Rhetoric students, who played Shakespearean era songs on recorders.
The Kindergarten through second grade played the "groundlings" in the performance and enjoyed interacting with the actors. Third grade began the event with a brief history of Shakespeare's life, times, and contributions to the language.
Fourth grade performed an inspired rendition of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Actors prepare to perform...
Fifth grade put on their hilarious version of Twelfth Night.
Bravo to our fine young actors! Thank you to our parents and others for attending, to Wendy Ashley, Michelle Holster, Cheryl Stollenwerck, Alicia Music, Bob Straus, Nora Brantley, and to Tommy Olafson and Joseph Stone for their crucial help in setting up for the event!

Chapel

All School

Mr. Turpin led a lively group discussion during the first all-school chapel of the year this morning, asking one simple question: "What does it mean to be a Heritage student?" Students broke into groups, and, led by an upper school student or teacher, discussed different values espoused by Heritage students. Senior Katie Chastain then wrote the students' ideas down on paper, which is now hanging in Herzog Hall as a reminder!

Winter Activities Graph

Kindergarten drew a picture of their favorite “winter activity” then created a pictograph.

CCC Guest Speaker

Our College Calling Communications Elective hosted guest speaker (and Heritage dad) Tony Roberts. Mr. Roberts shared insights with our eager students from his career ranging from being a bank auditor, to flipping burgers at Whataburger, to starting his own mortgage brokerage firm, to working in oil and gas before launching a custom homebuilding business and then finally serving as president of Guadalupe Bank. Mr. Roberts emphasized key lessons that life (and his parents) have taught him, including the importance of always saving money, even if it means something as radical as not having an iPhone, to never be too proud for any line of workdon’t pursue any job simply because of the promise of financial riches, and the importance that in business it’s all about establishing and maintaining trust. 
Please Bring Your Masks

Upper School students, please ensure that you are using masks from home as much as possible to responsibly conserve the school's supply of disposable masks.

House Da Vinci won the last quarterly house points contest through their superior attendance, GPAs, and merit records. Mr. Turpin and Mr. Sultemeier treated them to a burger cookout for their efforts. They also received gift cards at chapel!

Coach's Comments: This was a good night for us. We were able to play our young guys a majority of the second half. Depth is going to be very important for us down the stretch of the season. We are doing a better job taking care of the ball, but we have to get better at shooting and rebounding the ball. That was the focus at practice this week as we prepared for a big game vs district rival San Angelo Cornerstone.

Heritage                              17        7        9       14    -      47


Points: Josie Fevig 18, Livy Jons 2, Olivia Loggie 2

Coach's Comments: On Friday night we had our senior night to highlight three wonderful ladies: Livy Jons, Olivia Loggie, and Josie Fevig. We were able to celebrate their four years of dedication, sacrifice, and hard work to the girls basketball program. The first win of the night is when the Lady Eagles took the court, and we were able to have all three seniors in the starting lineup.
The Lady Eagles jumped out early on Atonement in the first quarter, causing lots of turnovers and pushing the ball quickly any chance they could. They took a 17-9 lead at the end of the first quarter, led by senior Josie Fevig who came out hot and hit three 3-pointers in that first quarter. It set the tone for the rest of the team and the rest of the game. We set the tone early and were determined to have a faster start than we had last time against them. We were on a mission and the girls were clicking on all cylinders.  After a back and forth game through the second and the third quarter, the Lady Eagles came out in the fourth and got hot once again, outscoring Atonement by 12 points. The last win of the night was senior Olivia Loggie, who was able to score on senior night, ending her playing career on an extremely high and emotional note.
Thank you, seniors, for all you have done for this program and for myself. You have helped me grow into a better coach and a better leader every day that you were with me. Thank you to the younger girls who sacrificed so much for these seniors, and who have supported them for so long. This win was a team effort and I couldn’t be any more excited with how we are playing. 
- Coach Kevin Perez
