Continuous Enrollment - One More Week!
There's only a week left to return your Continuous Enrollment Contracts and update your web forms. Please take a minute to log on to the Family Portal (the same place you order lunches, click on web forms on the left to access each form) and update those before March 1st.

If you are not planning to enroll in Continuous Enrollment, you still need to indicate your intention to return next year by submitting the $350 tuition deposit and also completing the web forms before March 1st. Doing this will guarantee a spot for your child in the class next year . There will not be any other enrollment paperwork sent home.

If you have any questions, contact Lisa Turnbough ( turnboughl@hcs-nl.com ).

Know someone who might be interested in checking out Heritage? Invite them to A Taste of Heritage which takes place the last Thursday of every month from 11am to 12:15pm. There's a card in your child's Friday folder and we encourage you to find one family you can invite to this event, whether it be this month or next!

Looking for ways to reduce your tuition for next year? Purchase a $50 raffle ticket for a chance to win $2500 off your tuition for the 2020-21 school year.
