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.
Madison Dillon and Kayla Kozak are shown here presenting their Power Point presentation on John Peter Zenger and Freedom of the Press. The controversy in the trial was highlighted as well as the benefits of a Free Press in today’s society. The second Power point was on the Battle of Yorktown in the Revolutionary War. The significance of French assistance and the strategy employed was emphasized to the students in Mr. Zawacki’s United States History class.
“Humility is not thinking less of yourself; it’s thinking of yourself less.” R. Warren
SEPTEMBER STUDENTS AND TEACHER OF THE MONTH: This week we honored an AM and PM senior, an AM and PM underclassman, and an AM middle school student…as well as a teacher of the month who exemplify the school value of HUMILITY on a daily basis.
