Welcome to Take a Hike!

  • Join Heritage Middle School's newest club - "TAKE A HIKE!"  Get outside, spend some time in nature to increase your creativity and problem-solving skills, feel happier, make new friends, and have fun!  This is a time to disconnect from technology and enjoy the great outdoors.  All you need are a pair of sneakers.  A club t-shirt will also be available to purchase!

    For our walks on school grounds, we will meet every Wednesday before school at 7:15 a.m. starting August 9th. Students will need to be dropped off at the front of the school in time to meet at a designated 6th grade classroom. They will sign in and leave all belongings, including cell phones in the classroom. At least one staff member will lead students on a walk following the Greenway that borders both the HMS and Heritage High. We will return by 7:50.

    A signed Wake County Permission form must be completed by a parent or guardian as we are going “Off- Campus” on these weekly walks.  See Mrs. Snyder, Mrs. Lafferty or Ms. Koennecke for a permission form.

    All students must follow the WCPSS dress code, wear sneakers, and if desired, our club’s t-shirt. (This t-shirt will soon be available to order.) Hiking/walking will be canceled for the day if it is raining or there are other extreme weather conditions.

    Please contact Mrs. Snyder at mmsnyder@wcpss.net if you have any questions.

    Students of all grades/tracks are welcome to join the staff on our walks!  C'mon and "TAKE A HIKE"!
