School Newsletter 1/11 Pinnacle by Andrea Lenhart

A Note from Principal Coleman:

January 11, 2024



Dear Heritage Academy Heroes & Families,

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to school and to the second semester!  We hope you all had a fantastic break and are ready to begin the second half of the school year.  We are excited for a successful 2024.  It was a successful week with everyone getting back into their routines.  We are also excited about the many new scholars that have joined us this second semester!  Welcome to Heritage!  Let’s make the most of the months ahead!

Citizenship Class:

Our Hero of the month of January is Alexander Hamilton, founding father of the United States with many accomplishments.  He fought in the American Revolutionary War, helped draft the Constitution, served as the first Secretary of the Treasury, and founded the American financial system.  His Character trait is to “Be Immovable”.  We will learn more about Alexander Hamilton throughout the month.

Parent Information Night for New Families:

We will be hosting a Parent Information Night on Wednesday, January 17th at 5:30 pm in the Heritage Academy Pinnacle Café.  If you know of any families that may be interested in joining our school, please invite them to this session.  We will provide them with information and answer any questions they have about our fantastic school.

Report Cards:

First semester report cards are being sent home today in your communications folder and by email through SwiftReach.

School Lunch Information – My Hot Lunchbox:

You may visit to order hot lunches.  No outside food (fast food or delivery) is allowed.  The school does not provide a lunch if your scholar forgets. 

Dress Code:

Here are a few reminders regarding our Heritage Academy Dress Code. 

  • Shoes should have backstraps including crocs.  Slippers should not be worn.
  • Outer wear should only be the following colors:  red (fire engine), white, and/or navy blue.  
  • Please wear coats during cold weather days.
  • All polos should have the Heritage logo.
  • Skirts should be to the top of the knee.  Leggings do not replace length of skirt.

Heritage Academy’s Mission:

We are dedicated to youth, their growth and development, and believe in building sound character through strong families, strong communities, and a strong nation.

While teaching the academic disciplines, Heritage Academy is dedicated to instilling into the minds and hearts of our youth knowledge of and respect for the ideals and values of the great men and women of history, including those who founded the American nation.

As they gain an appreciation of these people of accomplishment, they will be ready to provide the selfless service to their fellow citizens and to their country which will be required in the coming years to assist in restoring America’s greatness.

Lost & Found:

We have many items in our “lost and found” if you are missing anything.  We have mostly light jackets and sweatshirts.  If you are missing anything, have your scholar check the lost and found box in the Café.  It would be very helpful to write the name of your scholar on the inside tag, so items can be returned easily.  Thank you!
