Can Heritage Christian School come together to provide "Everything except the TURKEY" for 30 families in our community?  Beginning Monday, November 7th, all students are encouraged to bring in Thanksgiving type canned or boxed food.  Each class has been assigned a specific type of food to bring in to reach our goal of providing enough food for 30 meals!  Food should be placed in the appropriate box in the HCS hallway anytime between Monday, November 7th, and Friday, November 18th.  The middle school students will deliver the food items on Friday, November 18th. Please see your child's Friday Folder or click here for more information!
All School Thanksgiving Lunch - Friday, November 18
Friday, November 18th, will be our annual All School Thanksgiving Day Lunch. Again this year we'll have an opportunity for the entire school community to come together at the same time to give thanks through worship, eating, and fellowship. We look forward to spending time acknowledging together how God has blessed us as individuals, families, and a school.

Parents and grandparents, you are encouraged to arrive at school by 11:20am to join your child(ren) in the gymnasium for chapel, beginning at 11:30am. Following chapel, we will enjoy lunch "picnic-style" on the gym floor at 11:50am. Recess will follow outside from 12:30-1:00pm.
If you did not order the boxed lunch, you are welcome to join us and bring your own lunch for yourself and your children. We'd love for all families to join us in giving THANKS!
