MISSION STATEMENT
The Heritage Intermediate Staff will collaborate to ensure that all students learn at high levels and are prepared for success in the real world!


SEPTEMBER IS ATTENDANCE AWARENESS MONTH!
Did you know that absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance patterns throughout the entire school year? Did you know that by reducing the number of absences for students early in their education is associated with higher test scores and the ability to perform at grade level? Please be sure that your student is coming to school on a daily basis - set a positive pattern early in the school year.
