    Hello Huskies,

     

    This coming week is Teacher Appreciation Week.  Please take a moment to recognize a Heritage High School staff member for Teacher Appreciation Week.  You can also share this link with your HHS child if they would like to recognize a staff member.  With each Kudo that is submitted the comments along with candy will be delivered on 5/6 to staff.  You are more than welcome to submit more than one Kudo to your colleagues, teachers, administrators, front office staff, custodians, support staff, and cafeteria staff.  All Kudos should be submitted no later than Monday May 2.  Please use the link to access the form.  Candy and Kudos Form

     

    The theater department's final production of the year, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS opens this weekend! Come out and see the this deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical that has devoured the hearts of theatre-goers for over 30 years. There are 4 opportunities to see it this weekend and two more chances next Friday and Saturday evenings only. This is a very limited run so make sure to grab your tickets on GoFan sooner than later! Come out and support our graduating seniors as they perform one last time on our stage! Hope to see you there.

     

    Over 700 of our students will be taking AP exams starting next week and continuing through May 13.  There is critical information students need to know and tasks to complete to ensure access to their exams.  Learn more at our AP page here.  Take necessary action steps now (completing personal vehicle permission forms, bus sign ups, etc).

     

    It is time to begin preparing for our Awards Day on May 27.  If your student has been recognized for an accomplishment or achievement this year from a community-based organization, we’d like to know about it.  Complete this form at tinyurl.com/2122huskyawards or here by Monday, May 9.
