Heritage High School

August 8, 2021


Hello Patriots,

Welcome back to on campus learning!! We are pleased to have students back in school engaging in both academic and extracurricular activities once again. Our priority is to create and maintain a safe learning environment that promotes creativity, collaboration and critical thinking for all students and staff.  Now more than ever, it is imperative that we work as a team to ensure our school year returns back to a sense of normalcy.

While learning remotely, students and staff acquired long-lasting skills which increased our ability to be flexible and resilient. As such, we have an opportunity to create new traditions while also honoring established customs. As our school community returns, increased engagement with parents is vital.  One of the most important components of an exceptional school is a partnership between home and school. This year, there will be opportunities for parental involvement as we work toward strengthening our partnership with a focus on student success.

Heritage is an Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) National Demonstration School. Our academic focus at Heritage High School is a source of pride. This year, we will be going through the AVID revalidation process that evaluates our school wide AVID strategies which benefits all students.  In addition to the revalidation process and annual state assessments,  there will be many methods to measure and celebrate our performance and achievement.

Together, we will navigate through pathways associated with returning to school with dedication and determination. I am looking forward to a year filled with academic success and growth for our students.

Appreciatively, 
 
Mark S. Harrell
