Thanks for coming out


Thank you to the over 150 people who came out to engage in critical conversations through Sonny Kelly’s provocative theatrical performance, The Talk. It was an important step for our community coming together to support every child each day, regardless of our differences. 


HMS Progress Report


I encourage you to take a look at the Heritage Middle Progress Report using this link. This report, along with a progress report for all WCPSS schools, is available on the WCPSS website.  At HMS, we are very proud of the learning environment we have created that supports the development of the whole child as well as encourages our teachers to be creative in their instructional approaches used for every student each day!


Athletics Update


Patriot Fall Athletics kicked are in full swing. This past week we battled Rolesville MS. Our ladies soccer team won and is now 2-0, our football team suffered a tough loss and is now 1-1, and our ladies volleyball team lost a touch match and is now 0-2. Huge thanks to our cheerleaders and our Pep band for creating an electric home environment for all to enjoy! All Patriot athletes represented their school community with pride and outstanding character! Please visit the HMS Athletics website for a full calendar of events and plan to come out to support Patriot Athletics! I would also encourage you to consider following HMS Athletics on Twitter @HMSAthletics1.


Student Safety


Please be aware that we have many students walking to school in the mornings and home from school in the afternoons. Many cross Rogers Road.  I ask each of you to drive slowly and be highly alert for students and help us ensure the safety of all our students!  Thanks so much.   


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
