Volume 27 Number 20  |  1/29/2020
They cried to You and were saved; in You they trusted and were not disappointed.
Psalm 22:5


Grammar School

Speaker Katharine Zenner, children's minister at First Baptist Church, asked kids to tell her what sinful acts and loving acts that we have in our hearts. She wrote the loving acts and goals, like caring for others and having discipline, in black ink in a heart diagram. She then wrote the sinful acts, like lying and disparaging others, in red ink. She then covered the heart in a red film so that the red ink was no longer visible, but the goals in black ink were. This symbolized Jesus dying for our sins, and that His sacrifice takes away our sin and allows us to pursue our goals in Him. 

Upper School

Wes Hanson, youth pastor at Trinity Baptist Church in Kerrville, asked upper school students and faculty what the strangest thing we had ever done for a friend was, and what we were willing to do for a friend. He urged us to ask ourselves if we are willing to push them in their faith, to do the best thing that we can for them - follow in Jesus's footsteps - because they are worthy of that effort.

New Board of Trustees Members

The Heritage Board of Trustees (BOT) is pleased to announce that three new Trustees were unanimously approved to join the BOT beginning immediately. The Heritage BOT decided to onboard new Trustees now in order for the Board to be cohesive and better prepared to serve when a new Head of School is identified sometime in the future. The Board was seeking members of the Heritage family who have indicated a willingness to serve, a desire to be a part of the Heritage family for the long-term, and an enthusiasm one hundred percent in support of the mission of the school.

Join us in congratulating these new Trustees:
Keesha Odom   
After selling their logistics company, Keesha Odom and her husband moved to Stonewall to enjoy a quieter life. Now she spends her time in her vegetable garden or grooming her miniature highland cows. She is the proud mother of two, Wesley who is a second grader and daughter Jasmine who is in her second year at TCU.
Ryan Hoover                      
Ryan moved to Fredericksburg with his family in 1996 and considers Gillespie County his true home. He is a business owner in town and is passionate about leadership and development. His wife, Caitlin, and he have three children (and one on the way) named Eli, Molly, and Sadie. Eli is in 2nd grade and Molly is in Kindergarten at Heritage. Ryan says, "I am excited to be joining the board at Heritage and look forward to serving our wonderful school!"
Kenny Johnson                
My name is Kenny Johnson, and I am a Heritage School graduate of 2012. My 7 siblings and I are all graduates of Heritage actually, and my family was a part of the school's founding in 1994. I studied Economics at Texas A&M University (Class of 2015), followed by working in the mortgage industry in Houston until late 2018. Currently, I work for a local ministry here in Fredericksburg, Mision De Candelilla. I first got involved with MDC in high school through our summer mission trips, and have had a passion for ministry in Mexico and youth groups ever since. I am very blessed to be plugged in to the Heritage family, and it is a great honor to serve on the board for the school that is very dear to my heart.

Fifth Grade Light Bearers

In literature, fifth graders are reading A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. The book mentions several “light bearers” who strive to see and produce truth, goodness, and beauty in our world. Students researched light bearers, drew pictures, and presented their findings in front of the class.
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. 


Senior Recognition

Heritage wants to recognize all of the great efforts that our senior athletes have put into their roles as students and athletes at Heritage School. They have made memories not just for themselves, but for their classmates, teammates, parents, loved ones, and Eagle fans. We appreciate them for the people they are as much as for their athletic talents. They are Eagles for life!

Coach's Comments: In this game, our boys came out very aggressive, pressuring the ball and forcing San Marcos to commit multiple turnovers. We got up and down the court and ran tonight, meaning that we didn’t have to run much set offense tonight. Defensively, these guys have been really getting after it and that is what I love to see. We rotated tonight very well and simply did a great job running the floor. We are currently ranked number 2 in TAPPS 1A basketball.
