Heritage Happenings: October 2018
October had many fun and exciting events here at Heritage Park! Below, you will see some photos that highlighted our month!
1: Constable Young came to our school to discuss the new marijuana laws. He explained to students that marijuana is still very much illegal for students who are under the age of 19. Mr. Brogan and Ms. Ziefflie also discussed the negative health impacts that drugs can have on the developing brain. Thank you to Constable Young for taking the time to come to our school to share this valuable and informative information.
2: Our school spirit week was a great success! Students and staff dressed up in various themes such as "Pajama Day", "Crazy Hair Day", "Twin Day" and "Jersey Day". Everyone had so much fun sharing their school spirit all week long! Great work everyone!
3: Our sports clubs had great success throughout the month. Below you will see some photos from our Cross Country Team coached by Mr. Brogan and Ms. Ziefflie, our Football Team coached by Mr. Chezzi and Mr. MacDonald and our volleyball Team coached by Mr. McNeil. Great work to all of our students and coaches for representing our school well in the various tournaments and events that we attended throughout the month!
4: Halloween was so much fun this year! We had a huge Halloween Dance that was attended by well over a couple hundred students at lunch. Over 400 students dressed up this year which represented over half the school population! During the day we had lots of fun activities such as best costumes (most orginal, relevant and scary), as well as donut eating contests, mummy wrapping contests and candy grams. Thanks to Ms. Whitam, Ms. Hinsley and the T.E.A.K. Pogram and Ms. Matheny's Leadership Team for organizing the dance and activities!
5: A big thank you to Mr. McNeil and his students for doing such a great job running our school's store and coffee shop. This month, the Coffee Shop introduced a wide array of delicious drinks and treats that were enjoyed by everybody! Great work to all those involved in making the Espresso Grove such a big success!
