Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
    and his courts with praise.
    Give thanks to him, bless his name.

Psalm 100:4

SCHOOL HOLIDAY
GILLESPIE COUNTY FAIR DAY
TOMORROW, AUGUST 21

        FIRST WEEK (SORT OF)
OF SCHOOL

The school year began on Wednesday with happy (and squinting) faces. Students and staff were glad to be back on campus holding classes in person. Grammar School students looked especially excited to be able to play with their classmates at recess and share summer experiences with each other.
Upper School had an outdoor meeting in the morning on Wednesday... Electives teachers passionately explained the nature of their classes to the group of students gathered in order for the students to make an informed decision on their electives choice forms. Students and faculty shared in worship with Mrs. Music leading us in song. Houses participated in their first competition of 2020-2021 to kick start a year of "competing for good." Mr. Turpin also announced that the houses would now include 7th-8th graders starting this year and new members were welcomed into each house. Mrs. Hierholzer emphasized key COVID safety protocols.

LOCAL MISSIONS WEEK BUILDS PICNIC TABLES
FOR SCHOOL

Heritage students, friends, and alumni built picnic tables for both Grammar and Upper Schools to use for the expanded outdoor activities in the 2020-2021 school year. Both schools will spend more time outside this year for some classes and group gatherings to mitigate the possible spread of COVID-19, and take advantage of the spacious, beautiful campus at Heritage. Thank you Daniel Phillips, Kenny Johnson, Tatum Tanner to all that helped in this vital project!

9TH GRADE STEP-UP

Awesome Freshmen Class and Parents!

Say good-bye to Logic School and welcome to Heritage Rhetoric School adventures and achievements!

Meet us for our traditional STEP-UP session this TUESDAY, August 25, from 5:30 - 6:30 pm in the Great Hall. 

These meetings are as inspiring as they are informative. Besides Mrs. Sauer's presentation of details like transcript formats, GPA calculations, and college counseling, Mr. Turpin brings aboard some sage advice from several upperclassmen:

  • What are the perks of doing high school at Heritage?
  • What are the terms of success?
  • What are the challenges? The outcomes?

We are truly blessed to have 26 years of great stories to tell. 

PLEASE try to join us for this special family-cohort time and catch a glimpse of "the plans He has for you"!

THANK YOU!

Thank you to our supportive parents for these
wonderful (and effective) "teacher survival packs"!
