A Note from Principal Coleman:
October 19, 2023
Dear Heritage Academy Heroes & Families,
Our Hero of the month of October is James Madison. We are studying about him in our Citizenship classes. As a Founding Father, James Madison made great contributions to our country. He was our fourth president and was known as the “Father of the Constitution” for his role in drafting the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights. James Madison exemplifies the Character Pillar, to “Be Knowledgeable” that we are studying this month.

Costumes & Halloween Guidance:
Halloween on October 31st will be here soon. Each class will enjoy the day in their own way. We want this day to be as fun and safe as possible, so we have made several guidelines to follow:
- All food must be packaged, nut-free, and not home-made. Students will participate in activities within their classrooms, designed by their teachers.
- Students will need to come to school in their costumes if they want to wear them. Costumes are optional. There will be no changing into costumes during school. Costumes must be worn to school if your child chooses this option. If students prefer not to wear a costume, they may have a dress down day in Halloween shirts, orange, black, and follow Heritage dress down guidelines.
- Costumes should be as simple as possible. Masks for any costume are not allowed, since they may obstruct vision.
- Toy guns, sticks, or pretend weapons of any kind are not allowed.
There will be an outside Halloween Parade on Tuesday, October 31st at 8:30 a.m. Scholars will walk with their class. Parents may view the parade from marked areas in as the scholars walk in a single file line. Access to campus for families will start at 8:15 a.m., and gates will be closed by 8:25 to not disturb the flow of the parade. Pictures can be taken in the Café or specified areas following the parade. Our goal for this day is for our scholars to have fun and enjoy the day, while maintaining structure and safety for all scholars and staff.
