"You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh ; rather, serve one another humbly in love."

Galatians 5:13

MLK Day of Service

Heritage Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric School students spent Martin Luther King Day in service of many worthy causes in the local community. Students, faculty and parents began the day in Herzog Hall, watching clips from a few of Martin Luther King's greatest speeches, including "I Have a Dream" and "What is Your Life's Blueprint." The juniors took turns coming up front and delivering famous words from MLK. The students and faculty then broke out into their service groups and were dispersed into the Fredericksburg community and Heritage campus. Below are the projects that the students and faculty participated in:

Kindergarten and 2nd grade visited Villages of Windcrest where they played games, read to the residents and colored with them.
 

1st and 3rd grade students worked to clean parts of the Heritage campus.

4th and 6th grade students put on their dancing shoes to visit Knopp Nursing Home, where they visited with residents there and performed a few dances for their entertainment.

5th students went to Hill Country Church to pack lunches for local families in need.

​The 8th grade class went to Celeste Care Memory Care and Assisted living for their MLK Day service project.  Students interacted with residents, chatting with them about their lives and such subjects as football and family.  Students at the Memory Care center handed out various rhythm instruments and all kept rhythm as Mrs. Music played some lively salsa music.  Acelyn Thompson danced with two of the ladies and then the ladies danced with each other.  Students also read stories to the residents, including Mr. Hierholzer.  At the end of the visit there were hugs and hand squeezing and an invitation to return.  Several students said that they would love to return to the care center.  Every student was a blessing to the residents!

The House of DaVinci worked with the Hill Country Memorial Thrift Store to sort through clothing and other donations to organize them to display for purchase.

The House of Lewis helped to organize, sift through donations, and place sell-able items on out for purchase. 

The House of Shakespeare went to the SPCA to assist in cleaning their backyard area and sanitizing kennels.

And the House of Washington helped to keep Highway 87 tidy by picking up trash along a stretch of highway past Fritztown Cinemas going towards San Antonio. 

Thank you to our students and faculty for their enthusiastic participation in this great day, and to our service partners for giving us the opportunities to directly support our community, in the memory of a man who dedicated most of his life to outreach and ministry.

Get Your Groove On

Students got to "boogie down" on Saturday night at the Logic School Semiformal Dance sponsored by the seniors. Students danced to some "hoppin' tunes" in the transformed end of Herzog Hall, and were treated to drinks and a chocolate fondue fountain with dippable snacks.

How 2019 Impacted
Our Students


Click the link below for a Tim Elmore article on some of the ways the past year affected our students, positively and negatively. 
 
 

IN THE CLASSROOM

Kindergarten

Kindergarten is working hard on beautiful paintings, like the paintings they have observed by Mary Cassatt.

11th Grade

Juniors looked at an early 20th century camera “The Brownie” by Eastman Kodak and an early example of a “slide projector."  They looked at life and leisure in the 1900s.

HERITAGE ATHLETICS

Basketball

Logic Girls


Heritage                                28
Kerrville Notre Dame             13

Leading Scorers: Ellie Shipman 8  Lilli Bray 8

Rebounds: Eleanor Loggie, Acelynn Thomson

Defensive Player of the Game: Ellah Brillhart

I was very proud of the way our girls rebounded and handled the pressure on offense.  Notre Dame pressured our point guards and the girls adjusted to that very well.  We are working hard as a team and playing team basketball.  Each week, they are improving a step at a time.  It is a joy to coach these girls.  They work hard and strive to improve every time they are on the court.

-- Coach Tim Shipman

Logic Boys


Heritage                                      31
San Marcos Hill Country              25

Leading Scorers: Tres Jons 22, CJ Barnett 7, and Tristan Roberts 2

We were short handed with two players out sick. This is the kind of situation we have been preparing for and everyone stepped up to take care of business. Tres had a big game scoring when we needed him to. The boys all did a good job taking care of the ball and playing defense.

 

Heritage                                      27
Trinity                                            7

Leading Scorers: Gauge Varwig 8, CJ Barnett 8, Tanner Tippens 4, Tres Jons 2, Tristan Roberts 2, Ben Tabor 2, Trace Atkinson 1

This was a fun game for the boys. Getting everyone to score was our goal, and we accomplished that. Once again, it was a great opportunity for us to get some of our younger boys some playing time and game experience. Tres did a good job taking a different role in this game and it really worked to get his teammates open and get them opportunities to score.

-- Coach Chris Moldenhauer
Varsity Boys

Heritage                             12     11    10     6       41
San Angelo Cornerstone      3       7    13    13      36

Leading Scorers: Josh Hoermann 12, John Fritzsch 12, Sam Richburg 13, Jack Henderson 2, Finn Sawtelle 2

Coach's Comments: Tonight, though plagued with foul trouble, the boys figured a way to prevail. We had to battle adversity, losing leading scorer Josh Hoermann who fouled out midway through the fourth quarter. Even with the other starters having four fouls each, these young men gutted out a tough win.
Heritage                             15     16    17     12        60
San Marcos Hill Country      0       4      8      13        33

Leading Scorers: Josh Hoermann 13, John Fritzsch 4, Sam Richburg 17,  Finn Sawtelle 2, Luke Roberts 2, Josh Tabor 4, Aidan Hickey 4, Reece Thomson 2, Jake Roberts 3, Alex Ludwig 4, Noah Given

Coach's Comments: In this game, we kept San Marcos off balance by playing multiple defenses and not letting the opponents get comfortable. It was a good night getting all fifteen guys playing time, and getting the younger guys some good Varsity minutes. It’s going to be their show in a couple of years and it's great to get them out on the floor. We held San Marcos scoreless in the first quarter and stayed out of foul trouble. I think that it is key going forward to get off to fast starts and put on initial pressure defense.
