So many congratulations are in order for this week:

  • Congratulations to Gia Robalino for being selected as Heritage Elementary’s Spotlight Student.  Gia was recognized at WCPSS Board of Education meeting this past Tuesday evening when she received her award from Superintendent Moore.
  • Congratulations to all Tr 1 Kindergarteners and 5th graders for a wonderful holiday performance under the direction of Ms. Bailey. They certainly helped put everyone in a  holiday mood.
  • Congratulations to all of our HERO award winners for 2nd quarter. This quarter we recognized students that have been engaged learners.  It was wonderful to hear the wonderful descriptions of each recipient and to see the support of families and peers.
