There are a number of events happening here at Heritage that I would like to share.

#4 – Social and Emotional Learning Survey (Grades 3-5) – As a district we’ve begun to recognize and value social and emotional learning with our students. To collect baseline data on how our students are doing our district has asked our students in grades 3-5 to participate in a survey. Included in this email is a copy of a parent letter as well as the survey questions for our students. If you have concerns or would like to exclude your student from participating please contact me directly. Parent Letter | Survey Questions
I knew one day I would have to send an email like this and I count myself fortunate to have been able to work at Heritage for this long. Every few years the WCSD School Board rotates principals and this year I am among the principals being rotated. I will be moving to Crimson View Elementary with a start date of March 18, 2019.
Heritage Elementary will be in good hands with the new principal, Amy Wilcox. She has been the principal at Coral Cliffs Elementary for the past 9 years. She is a strong principal and has many talents. I have known her to build rapport with parents, faculty, and students. She is also creative when making decisions that will impact student achievement. I believe you will find her to be compassionate, kind, and very sensitive to the needs of each one of our learners and families. I am sure you will grow to love her!
I appreciate the support and love I have felt as I have worked at Heritage these past six years. I have had so many amazing experiences and developed friendships with many of you that will always touch my heart. Your children have been such a wonderful part of my life and I treasure each one of them. I will always be grateful for Heritage and the many memories and experiences that I have had here. Heritage will always hold a special place in my heart.
Please give a warm welcome to Mrs. Wilcox and carry on as you always do! Heritage is a fabulous school and I hope it will always remain that way.
