Heritage School kicks off Spirit Week Monday

The Heritage School Hawks will celebrate Homecoming the week of September 30 through October 4.

Students in the Upper School — grades 9-12 — will compete over the course of Spirit Week to earn the coveted “Most Spirited Class” award. Spirit points will be accumulated by participation in the Spirit Week events.

As part of the “Most Spirited Class” contest, Heritage will host an Upper School Dodgeball Tournament Monday through Thursday, along with a class poster competition to be judged on Friday.


Friday is Heritage Spirit Day in which all students from pre-K to 12th grade as well as the school staff and faculty are encouraged to sport Heritage Hawks colors or wear red, white, and blue. The entire student body will gather to enjoy the new Heritage Center with the first Homecoming Pep Rally on Friday at 2:30 PM. The pep rally will include the Dodgeball Tournament finals.
