PTA PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
A Note from the President
Welcome back to school!
It’s great to see so many returning families as well as new young
faces. Heritage is a great place! The PTA’s goal for the year is
to “Make every child’s potential a reality.” Our PTA hosts many
programs throughout the year including fall festival, father/
daughter dance, mother/son sock hop, Grandparents Breakfast
just to name a few. In the last two years, PTA has helped with a
learning garden, a covered picnic shade, and a new sound system
for the school. Each year, PTA gives every child a free book,
provides classroom grants and sponsors teacher appreciation
When you join PTA, you join a community that encourages
student achievement and enriches the learning environment.
We believe in building partnerships between our families and
our school. We believe TOGETHER we can help our
children be successful. Research proves kids do better when
parents are involved. We welcome you to get involved with PTA
to show your support. Looking forward to a great year!!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, issues or ideas,
You can email me at HeritagePTA@yahoo.com

Do you want to help the PTA earn money for the school?
This year we are participating again in a hassle-free fundraiser called Shoparoo.
All you need to do is take pictures of your grocery receipts with the Shoparoo app made for your smartphone. It doesn’t matter where you shop or what you buy - every receipt submitted results in a donation to our school!
Simply download the free app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store by searching ‘shoparoo’ and then select our school as your chosen cause. Since there is no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo, be sure to invite your friends and neighbors to join in – every receipt counts!
