You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
2 Corinthians 9:11

Third Grade Service

Third grade students took a moment in Friday's Morning Focus to raise awareness of the Hunger Busters food drive that they are leading. They are attempting to raise 1000 pounds of food to donate to the
Fredericksburg Food Pantry.

Remembering September 11, 2001

Fifth grade students made time for a moment of silence on
Friday, September 11.

Science Rules!

In science class, seventh grade students began replicating the scientific method by writing a clear and concise lab procedure for a LEGO build so that other students can attempt to build the same thing. Students used the blue screens pictured to hide their work from fellow students so that no one would be able to see each other's builds prematurely.

As part of our history curriculum, fifth graders study timelines. They presented their own personal life timelines in class on Tuesday. 
Seventh and Eighth grade music students used xylophones and movement to represent rhythmic patterns.

PSAT AND SAT UPDATES - CHANGED

PSAT 2020 Date CHANGE
 
The College Board PSAT/NMSQT exam (for National Merit Scholarships) has been a mid-October tradition for decades. This year however, College Board is allowing schools the option of postponing the exam to Tuesday morning, January 26, 2021. Heritage School staff and upper classmen determined the extra time would be advantageous and moved our in-house event to the January date. Grades 8 - 11 parents should mark your calendars for a bigger breakfast that morning!

SAT Fall Date

 
The Fall administration of the In-House SAT (not PSAT) is scheduled for Wed, Sept 23, right after See You At The Pole.

All Juniors and Seniors are registered at this time. Seniors, please contact Mrs. Sauer at guidance@heritageschool.org if you want to cancel your reservation because you will not be sending scores with college applications.

Football

Quote from Coach Shipman about the upcoming season:
"We are so thankful that we have the opportunity to play football. Varsity started with full pads on Friday, Sept 11, and we look forward to the scrimmage on the 18th. Time is of the essence. We have the scrimmage, 2 non-district games, and then head right into district play against rival Cedar Park Summit.

We look forward to seeing what God has for us on this journey. This team is embracing that we have a target on our back as we are the defending state champions. That is a great place to be, and we know that we must be prepared to take every team's best shot. We are eager and the young men have been putting in a lot of work in preparation for this season. We will strive to stand firm, not only between the white lines, but more importantly outside the white lines. You won't want to miss any of our games but particularly our home opener vs #8 UIL Leakey. It will be a treat. It is also Flight Night and Senior Night - Friday September 25th 7:30PM."
