It's Back To School Season!



With just over a week left of our homes echoing with the summer calls of "I'm bored", our minds turn toward preparations for the school year. September still feels like a new 'year' to me, even though I haven't started school in the fall for quite some time! I often feel energized as the harvest season approaches and I find myself looking forward to new routines and challenges; particularly after the free-flowing days of summer!


While you are enjoying the last few lazy days of our summer in the sunshine, below is some information on what is to come in the month of September. There is a brief update on our Casino Fundraiser from June, links to order your Davison Orchard Apples and/or a copy 2022-2023 Yearbook if you missed out in June, details on how to be involved within the school this year, upcoming PA/Council Meeting dates and some links to the School website for school supplies and first-day details.


New this year is an Open House Afternoon on the first two days of school - Thursday Aug 31st & Friday Sept 1st starting at 2:45pm. Come for a tour of the school, visit your student's classroom, meet teachers and connect with the school community.

2022-2023 Yearbooks Still Available

Each year, the Parent Association works alongside Mr. Matt Berrigan and his amazing team of students to provide a memento of the school year at Heritage Heights. ​It is the absolute pleasure of the Parent Association to gift the departing Grade 9 students with a complimentary yearbook! Grade 9 students will be asked to pay $5 to cover the cost of mailing their yearbook to them in the fall. The yearbook cost for K - 8 is $30. There are a limited number still available.
