Volume 27 Number 24  |  3/5/2021
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
Philippians 2:3

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
 Isaiah 41:10

Prayers for the Holster Family

Heritage School and the Heritage family send our most heartfelt prayers to Sydney Holster and the Holster family in this difficult time. We are hoping and praying daily for a successful recovery for Sydney following a car accident on Tuesday night.

Chapel

All-School

In the all-school chapel on Wednesday, Mrs. Brantley discussed self control and what it means: simply saying no to the things that are not good for you and yes to the things that are good for you. This includes listening to God and acting in the way that He wants us to act, and not always doing whatever we want to do. She gave the examples of playing video games when a student should be doing homework, telling little white lies, and going along with whatever the group is saying or doing, even when you know it's wrong.
Mrs. Brantley placed a leash on Coach Kevin to vividly describe the issue of self control. When Coach was "bucking" the leash, it tightened. When he maintained self control and calmed down, the leash loosened, displaying how our life becomes easier when we employ self-control and discipline. Mrs. Brantley told the audience that when you take shortcuts in life as well, you are not exercising self-control. She quoted 2 Timothy 3:2 "People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy." Sometimes thinking about only ourselves feels good, but this is not God's desire for us. He wants us to relinquish control to Him - living the best versions of our lives through Him. Mrs. Brantley asked us to look at each aspect of our lives in a normal day and ask, "are we demonstrating self control?"

Grandparent's Day 2021
Live and Live Streamed!

We are going forward with our plan for GRANDPARENTS DAY! 

After missing the event last year during the quarantine, we are stepping into the project with enthusiasm and caution. Grandparents will be honored with a program featuring our K-12th grade classes. In the interest of caution during our lingering COVID era, all grandparents are invited to come who feel comfortable with wearing facemasks. We will set up MPAC with distancing in mind. Any grandparent who does not feel comfortable attending may opt to VIEW the program LIVE thanks to the Fbg.live team (the camera team who brought us our 2020 graduation and several of our football games). An added bonus is that our parents will be able to “attend” the program via technology as well (and we will be able to post the recording of the event!)

View the event live at heritageschool.org/grandsparentsday

More details will be forthcoming…

Area Playoffs

Boys

Calvary Baptist    14  -    8  -  10  -    2       Final 34

Heritage              17  -  13  -  13  -  11      Final 54


Points: John Fritzsch 18, Josh Hoermann 13, Jack Henderson 16, Jake Roberts 5,  Finn Sawtelle 2

Coach's Comments:  Our guys did a great job of being physical and keeping these guys off balance. Calvary came in to this game keying in on John Fritzch and Josh Hoermann. We got fantastic minutes from Jack Henderson, and Josh did a great job along with Rory Shelton and Jake Roberts handling the ball and getting us into our sets. Finn Sawtelle has been a defensive hound for us by taking on the best player every night. This was a great team win as we advance to the regional round.

Girls

Heritage            7      8    16      5       Final 36

Brazosport         2      4      3      4       Final 13


High Scorer: Josie Fevig 16, Ellie Shipman 6

Leading Assist: Madison Brantley 6, Lilli Bray 3

Leading Rebounder: Lilah Brillhart 5, Ellie Shipman 5

Coach's Comments:  The varsity girls traveled to Lake Jackson to play Brazosport who finished first in their district. The Lady Eagles put on a defensive show, making their opponent turn the ball over 34 times. We came out a bit nervous and were playing a hair slow. That’s why our first two quarters were a little rough. Once we got back after halftime and made a few adjustments, our true team identity came out in the third quarter. Overall, I am pleased with how we played, though we still have some things to clean up. I think we are starting to click at the right time. Now, we have to get ready for Houston Kingwood who we play Saturday for a chance to play in the State Final Four game. They are a tough team and play almost the same style we do. It should be a fun game and I’m excited for the girls as they are showcasing how much hard work they have put into this season and the results are starting to show.
