Spring Break

A happy Spring Break to our Heritage family!
Have fun and stay healthy!

Heritage will resume classes on Tuesday, March 23.

Spring Changes

With the Holsters’ recent crisis with daughter Sydney’s accident, the 4th grade has had substitute teachers. Though God is blessing Sydney with remarkable progress, Mrs. Holster will need to care for her daughter for an indefinite time.  Please continue to pray for the entire family—God is answering prayers!

In an effort to bring consistency and stability to the 4th graders, a long-term substitute has been hired. Highly recommended to Heritage School and an experienced middle school math teacher, Mrs. Vicky Crenwelge is very excited to be able to teach for Heritage. The 4th grade class will welcome Mrs. Crenwelge on Tuesday, March 23.  Mrs. Crenwelge observed the class this Thursday and Friday and will work on lesson plans during spring break. Parents of the 4th graders can meet and greet Mrs. Crenwelge at 3pm on Monday, March 22 in the 4th grade classroom.

In an effort to free up more time for Admissions tours, Mr. Sultemeier will be taking over Mrs. Borrer's 7th grade Pre-Algebra class.  In order to free up that time slot, the 9th grade Environmental Science class will be taught by Mrs. Pressler.  

Chapel

Grammar School: YOUnique

Mrs. Hierholzer led the GS Chapel this past Wednesday.  She brought with her a tote bag of various mystery items and asked the teachers to send a volunteer up to try to guess the function of an item   Some of the items completely baffled the volunteers while other items were identified quickly.  At the end of the chapel, all the students “volunteered” Coach Kevin to identify the last item which no one could figure out, including Coach.  The item was a unique gadget for holding a book open.  Mrs. Hierholzer shared Psalm 139:13 & 14: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it well.”  She emphasized that God made each of the children and teachers and that they are each ONE OF A KIND and that God will never make anyone else exactly like them.  She urged each person to remember that God loves each one of them and that He has special plans for them!

Upper School

At chapel on Wednesday, guest speaker Ezra Proch, of the musical group Willow City, spoke to upper school students about the importance of putting in the work in our relationship with the Lord, including prayer, meditation, and reading Scripture. He stated that, similar to how he practices playing guitar before a big show, we must practice our faith before a big test in life. What happens in that testing moment of life, or on that stage, is just a reflection of the hard work that we put in well beforehand.

The New New Normal

In removing the requirement for upper school students to wear facemasks, we now have a new “new normal.”

1) We can now see whole faces.
2) Students are happy not to be dealing with facemaskne.
3) We still want all students and staff to cover sneezes and wash hands.
4) We still want all students and staff to come to school without fever, coughs.
5) We will still ask students to use water bottles vs. water fountains.
6) We will still limit visits from outside guests (who need to check in with Dee Schumann).  
    Exceptions:
           Youth pastors (we have been allowing them all year)
           Thesis mentors
           Admissions (tours available on request)
7)  Parents may come to chapels.
8)  Parents may still bring forgotten items/lunches. We still request that you check in at the office vs. going straight to the classrooms. [This procedure is intended as a routine security procedure for all and for maintaining respect for the teacher and the class’s time.]
9)  Parents may provide cupcakes or other individually packaged items for lunch birthday treats.     

STAY healthy, BE safe, and ENJOY your spring break!

Backpack Heroes

Parents,

HSPA is excited to announce a fun new idea that YOU are invited to get in on called Backpack Heroes! Over the final 10 weeks of the school year, we will be celebrating each new school day by welcoming our grammar students with an amplified morning drop off!

Each week, a different family will be opening doors and helping our younger students to their destination.  And each of these families will be tasked with making that drop-off … fun!

If you’re available from 7:30 – 8:00 every morning for a week, you’re qualified!

For more information, you can contact Keesha Odom (odoms4tx@gmail.com) or Kim Roberts (krobertsfbg@gmail.com). Look out for a sign-up sheet coming to your inboxes shortly!

Grandparents 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…

HSPA Generosity - Teacher Appreciation Week

The staff at Heritage School cannot begin to express the amount of gratitude that we feel towards our parents who gave so generously this week for Teacher Appreciation Week. It is a privilege to have such selfless individuals involved with our school and part of the Heritage family.
Staff started their morning off on Monday with fruit cups and breakfast tacos! Then, on Tuesday, received awesome branded totes with school materials and snacks.
We also received personalized care boxes complete with snacks, office supplies, and other goodies.
Staff enjoyed a full Italian meal from Pasta Bella, bringing teachers from both schools together in Herzog Hall!

Family Support

Grammar School students got together to show their support for Mrs. Holster, her daughter Sydney, and the Holster family.

Mrs. Burnett Teaches Weaving

This week we had parent Malinda Burnett come in with her loom. She was here all week in the grammar school library working on her weaving. She would teach each of them what she knows and allow them to work with her. She started and finished a scarf on the loom as an example.

Fifth Grade Ancient Greece Studies

As part of our study of Ancient Greece, students researched Athens and Sparta. Through a process of drawing lots, students were placed into an Athens group or a Sparta group. Each group’s mission was to convince the audience to move to their city-state. They each prepared a brochure which contained pictures, a pros/cons list, and a persuasive paragraph. Groups presented their brochures in front of the class.

Regional Playoffs

Boys

Heritage 13 13 16 15   Final 57
Legacy   13   9  11 19   Final 52

Points : Josh Hoermann 21, Jake Roberts 15, Jack Henderson 12, John Fritzsch 9

Coach's Comments: In this game, the boys did a great job handling the pressure Legacy put on us with their 1-3-1 zone. We got some really good outside shooting from Jake Roberts, connecting on five three pointers. Josh Hoermann was simply the best player in the gym that day. He put pressure on the ball, got us into our offense, scored in the open court, and was just amazing. Despite being double and sometimes tripled-teamed, John Fritzsch was able to give us nine points. Jack Henderson continues to improve offensively, giving us 12 points while remaining really solid on the boards. Defensive hounds Rory Shelton and Finn Sawtelle were a big piece into this game's effort, not allowing their guards to get into a rhythm was very big for us. This was a great team win to advance us to the final four.

Final Four

The final four game versus Cypress Covenant was streamed on Facebook Live
Heritage  6   6    8  10   Final 30
Cypress   10  7  10  10   Final 37

Points:
Josh Hoermann 10, Jack Henderson 6, John Fritzsch 12, Rory Shelton 2

Coach's Comments: In this game, I feel we played well defensively. Offensively, things did not go so well this game. We played very hard, but the ball just didn’t drop from the outside for us. My heart goes out to the three special seniors. I have nothing but praise for those guys' hard work over the four years, leading us to a final four appearance. Sam Richburg, Josh Hoermann, and Finn Sawtelle have forever left a stamp on our program, and I thank those young men for that. A senior year consisting of Covid, a massive ice storm, injury troubles, and multiple other outside factors - they pushed through all of those circumstances and gave me 110 percent every day.

Girls

Final Four

Heritage                                            10    2    2     17    -    31
San Angelo Cornerstone                    7     5    5     23    -    40
 
The Lady Eagles had an opportunity to play in the final four on Tuesday night, with a chance to go to the state championship game on Saturday. They played a team they knew really well - San Angelo Cornerstone. Both teams played each other twice this season and were going to play each other one more time with the chance to go to state championship on the line.

With a quick turn-around, the Lady Eagles sacrificed a lot of time and lunches to come in and watch some film and formulate game plans. When the ball got tipped off, the Lady Eagles jumped out to a quick six-to-zero start and were clicking on all cylinders. Cornerstone was able to answer right back with a five-point barrage, making it a one-point game. After that first two minutes of the game, it became a huge defensive battle and swung back and forth. In the fourth quarter, the Lady Eagles took the lead with five minutes to go, and Cornerstone answered right back, opening the game up to 14 points. The girls tried to claw their way back into the game, but time was against them. These ladies played their hearts out and met a great team that is well coached. We had some things not go our way, but there is no need to hang our head. WE made some history by even getting here and I know this isn’t something we wanted to end with, but at the end of the day, we can be proud of what we accomplished.
