We will have several student presentations in addition to information about the school finances, tuition assistance, info about the "relief route" and how it affects Heritage + you, and  info about next year's exciting "gala" event.  We trust that the date change will allow you to attend and be able to start your 4-day weekend promptly after school is out on Feb 13!
 

Author and Heritage Alumna
Visits Grammar School

Heritage alumna Beth (Bethany Beall) Mills (Heritage Class of 2004) visited Heritage campus on Wednesday to read to our Grammar School students and give a presentation about her work as an author and graphic artist. She writes and illustrates childrens'  books and does illustration for educational companies that print textbooks and other educational materials. She sat with kindergarten through second grade students to read her own book, Ella McKeen Kickball Queen, and answer their questions. She also graciously took requests for objects the students wanted to see her draw.
She moved on to speak to third through fifth grade students about the process of getting a book published and what her life as an author is like. She then gave the students a quick tutorial of how she begins her illustrations, drawing examples of her process on the whiteboard using adjectives and animal ideas that the students gave her. They were very impressed with her ability to draw anything they asked, instantly! Her book will be made available for purchase to Heritage parents in the Grammar School library, please contact Mrs. Basse in the admin office with any questions. Thank you for sharing your time and talents, Beth!

Chapel

Chapel this week was dedicated to discussion of the Martin Luther King Day activities that students and faculty participated in recently. At the front of the room, Grammar School Director Nora Brantley asked several student representatives from Grammar School about what they did to serve that day. The children were unanimous in how fulfilled they felt after speaking with the elderly at nursing homes or cleaning up areas around campus because they saw how their actions helped others. Logic and Rhetoric School students then came forward to discuss their class or House's service projects. They were also unanimous in the rich, positive feelings they felt in serving Hospice, St. Vincent de Paul, cleaning Highway 87 and SPCA, visiting Celeste Memory Care and Knopp Nursing Home. They were also all supportive of doing more of these projects in the future. It was a great morning of sharing and fellowship!

EAGLE EXTRAS

On Thursday, the seniors had the privilege of touring our State Capitol and observing oral arguments before the Texas Supreme Court. Following the oral arguments, the seniors had the opportunity to ask questions of the four attorneys litigating the case, as well as spend time in a private audience with Texas Supreme Court Justice Jeff Boyd. The seniors loved seeing our government in action, and we are grateful to Heritage dad Milton Buckelew for sharing his longtime friend, Jeff Boyd, with us.

IN THE CLASSROOM

Kindergarten

Ephesians 4:32  Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

Kindergarten shared kindness with the Grammar School faculty by making and decorating cupcakes. We also recalled our “k & c spelling rule” while spelling the compound word CUPCAKE.

6th Grade

Sixth Grade Bible students drew and built a timeline of the events leading up to and right after the birth of Christ.

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT

Heritage alumni Erin Klokker (Class of 2019, UNT), Dylan Eggleston (Class of 2017, Savannah College of Art and Design), Jamie Hoermann (Class of 2016, Mary Hardin-Baylor) and Amy Lucas (Class of 2018, Mary Hardin-Baylor) all made the dean's list this year!

This was a complete team effort. This was a tough two-day tournament and these girls had to fight hard. They logged a lot of minutes on the court. Each game, there were contributions from every player. There is no way to win a tournament like this without the entire team contributing. We are very proud of the leaders being selfless and leaning on one another. There were times when things didn't go our way and they could have folded. Instead, we pulled together and fought hard through the fatigue and found a way to win. This is a tournament that isn't just won in a day or two - it has taken a season of hard work to get to this point. These girls, top to bottom, are very special and they deserve this title. They are young, and we are looking forward to seeing how God uses them moving forward in the game of basketball - their potential is incredible.

-- Coach Tim Shipman and Coach Kevin Perez

LOGIC BOYS

 

Heritage                                34
Living Rock                            33

Leading Scorers: Tres Jons 18, CJ Barnett 14, Tristan Roberts 2, Gauge Varwig 2

Coach's Comments: Although we didn't play to our full potential, we won the game. We had a slow start on offense, gave up too many rebounds, and had a lot of turnovers. However, the boys kept fighting and pulled out the win by hitting free throws to take the lead and made a defensive stand on the last play to win the game.

 

Heritage                                37
Hunt                                       23

Leading Scorers: CJ Barnett 23, Tres Jons 5, Tristan Roberts 3, Gauge Varwig 2, Tanner Tippens 2, Ben Tabor 2

Coach's Comments: We played well and this was a good way to end out our home games for the year. We have one more non-CALSA game against Marble Falls Faith Academy on Monday, and we’ll be heading into the CALSA Tournament in 2nd place. It looks like we will have a good shot at winning the tournament if we take care of the ball and rebound.

--Coach Chris Moldenhauer

VARSITY BOYS


Heritage                             15     13    11     10       49
San Angelo                          6        6      8     11       31

Leading Scorers: John Fritzsch 15, Josh Hoermann 8, Luke Roberts 2, Sam Richburg 13, Aidan Hickey 2, Jack Henderson 4, Jake Roberts 3, Noah Given 2
Rebounds: John Fritzsch 10, Josh Hoermann 6, Luke Roberts 3, Rory Shelton 2, Sam Richburg 1, Aidan Hickey 1, Jack Henderson 2, Jake Roberts 2, Noah Given 1, Reece Thomson, Finn Sawtelle 4
Steals: John Fritzsch 1, Josh Hoermann 5, Sam Richburg 8, Noah Given 1
Assists: Josh Hoermann 7, Sam Richburg 4, Noah Given

Coach's Comments: We did a great job defensively in this game. We got out in the passing lane and got easy baskets in transition. Starting backcourt Hoermann and Richburg combined for thirteen steals. Though our shooting could have been stronger, it felt good to get those easy baskets. We lost big man Noah Given early on to an ankle sprain. We pray for a speedy recovery. In his absence we got big contributions from Jack Henderson, Aidan Hickey, and Luke Roberts. Also, freshman Jake Roberts gave us some good minutes when we were plagued with early foul trouble. Big man John Fritzsch was dominant with 15 points and 10 rebounds controlling the paint. We will enjoy this one, but it is time to get ready for San Marcos on Friday.

-- Coach Clarence Stewart

Tennis

Three junior players participated in the Tom Moore Warrior Invitational, their first tournament of the spring season! The players were: Isabella Bourtin, Erin Fritzsch, and Sam Cowsar. After a full day of tough matches, Sam Cowsar and Erin Fritzsch were knocked out of the tournament in the semifinal round of the backdraw. Isabella Bourtin persevered through her finals match to win first place in the girls singles main draw!

-- Coach Daniel Rubio
