News and Updates from HCS
S'mores and Social

Bring your lawn chairs and family to the Heritage H.A.N.D.S. S'mores and Social at the school on Sunday, October 20 anytime from 5:00-7:30pm for s'mores, hot cocoa and apple cider. (There will be gluten free graham crackers and dairy free chocolate bars available so no excuse not to bring the whole fam!) This is a great time to meet new families and connect with old friends!
H.A.N.D.S. Pancheros Restaurant Night
Come join us for dinner at Pancheros in North Liberty on Monday, October 21 between 5 and 7:59pm. Any "extras" (chips and queso, extra queso, extra guac, extra meat, and chips and guac) you order will be tracked and Heritage H.A.N.D.S. will get the proceeds. Invite your friends and order some extras!
All School Thanksgiving Lunch
Friday, November 22nd, 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 12:00pm. Recess will follow outside from 12:30-1:00pm.
Our caterer will provide a boxed lunch (club sandwich on croissant, chips, fruit, and chocolate chip cookie) available for purchase for both students/children and adults. The cost for the student or younger sibling will be the normal $4.25 and the adult price is $7.50. The adult sandwich is a larger sandwich so if you have an older student, you are welcome to order that for your student but you will have to pay the adult price. Please indicate on the web order the total number of meals you would desire. All lunch orders (including the Thanksgiving boxed lunch) must be submitted by the 23rd of October. All payments must be received by October 31st. Please also feel free to bring in your own lunch for you and your child(ren) that day. If you have any questions, please contact Brenda Wichhart at 626-4777 or  wichhartb@hcs-nl.com .
Veterans Day Celebration Photos

If your child(ren) is new to Heritage Christian School and he/she has a relative that is a veteran or currently enlisted in the United States Armed Forces, please send a picture (preferably electronic) to Brenda Wichhart at  wichhartb@hcs-nl.com .  These pictures will be added to a slide show and to a wall recognizing the families that have sacrificed for the security and safety of our nation. Please send all photos by Friday, October 25. All hard copy photos will be returned. Pictures submitted in previous years do not need to be resubmitted as we have kept electronic copies of them.
Please include the following information with your photo:
·          Name
·          Branch of Service
·          Years of Service
·          Relationship to Heritage student
Boxtops for Education

Did you know that over the course of last school year we earned $1,000 from Boxtops? That's 10,000 boxtops collected! Although the Boxtops for Education program is changing from "clipping" to "scanning" you can still earn cash for our school. Download the Boxtops app or visit boxtops4education.com for more details.
After School Supervisors Needed
Help spread the word among your friends, in the neighborhood, at your churches, and at work. If you know someone who loves working with kids and is looking for a part time job, send them our way. We're looking for additional After School Supervisors from 3:30 to 5:30pm each school day. This is a great opportunity for a college student to pick up some part time work (hourly rate is $12.00). Feel free to print out this flyer to share or post. If you or someone you know is interested, contact Lisa Turnbough ( turnboughl@hcs-nl.com).
