For the month of October, Heritage Academy honors five students and a teacher for their consistent display of ethical behavior on and off campus. For knowing what’s right and for standing up for “right” we salute you. They are: Seniors Arthur Yeager and Kota Nishimura; underclassmen Leo Hernandez and Jenny Zhu; middle school student Kevin Pierre; and teacher Sarah Hobson.
Students in the morning World Geography class enjoyed a visit from Mrs. Horup, Vivi’s mother, yesterday. She shared with us her experiences growing up in the province of French Quebec, as well as some samples of French Canadian cuisine. It was a most enjoyable way to synthesize from the textbook to real life!
World Geography students (high school & middle school) participated in three Earth in Space programs during a visit to Georgia Southern University’s planetarium. It was a great visual interactive learning experience for everyone. Afterwards, the Heritage students enjoyed lunch in the campus food court and a guided tour of the college campus. All in all, it was a meaningful activity and an opportunity for the two different groups of students to interact with one another in a fun and educational field trip.
Visiting with one of the actors after viewing a performance of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, a Lean Ensemble Production. Heritage’s own Jenny Zmarzly played the pivotal role of Amanda Wingfield, which made the evening even more meaningful for us. The play was an introduction to our study of Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire.
