Dear HES Families,

Welcome to Heritage Elementary School, Home of the Heroes, where we inspire our Heroes to dream big!

I would like to warmly welcome you and your child(ren) to the 2021-22 school year.  For those of you who are new to our school, I want you to know that you are coming to an absolutely wonderful place!  Our teachers and staff are devoted, caring, innovative, and always learning something new to benefit students.  We are a collaborative and driven group of educators who strive to have our students reach their highest potential.  Every student can excel when we establish high expectations and work collectively to provide the needed support for students to meet and exceed those expectations.

Heritage Elementary School services grades K-5, and we are a Leader in Me school.  This is an innovative, school-wide model that emphasizes a culture of student empowerment. This program integrates timeless leadership principles into elementary school culture and curriculum, providing students with practical character and life skills relevant for today's 21st century challenges.  The Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development.  Through The Leader in Me, we teach the 7 Habits, which engages in student goal setting, allows for leadership opportunities, and increases students' success. Parental input and collaboration is something we strongly value and encourage in our school community. It takes a team approach to provide a safe and structured learning environment for all of our students.

We are looking forward to another successful year and know that our continued partnership will ensure a productive and fun educational experience for your child(ren).  Thank you for the opportunity to help grow your children!


Educationally yours,

Gena Misciagno
