News and Updates from HCS
No School on Monday (unless you're a teacher, then we'll see you bright and early for In-Service!)

We do NOT need to make up the snow day that occurred on Wednesday, the 15th or the early out on Friday, the 17th. We currently have enough hours built into the calendar to account for several snow days.
Association Meeting - Jan 21

Please make plans to attend the Association Meeting (ICACSA) on Tuesday, January 21. Important updates on the school will be covered by the HCS Board and Head of School Scott Montgomery. Tuition numbers for the upcoming school year will be announced as well as discussion and a vote on clarifications and additions to the Statement of Faith. Attending these meetings is one of the best ways to stay "in the know" about what's happening behind the scenes at Heritage.

Sports Update

Game Recaps:
Heritage @ Trinity Lutheran CR
The Heritage girls completed a stunning comeback Tuesday night. They trailed 15-8 after 3 quarters, but fought back to outscore Trinity Lutheran 10-0 in the fourth to secure an 18-15 victory. The rally was sparked by a great team defensive effort, including critical steals by Eno Ituk and Kendall Pitcher. Shay Sundblad connected on 2 crucial free throws, then Sophia Greazel and Nora Miller hit the go-ahead and game clinching shots respectively with under a minute to play.

Heritage vs. LIS
The Heritage girls lost a close game to LIS on Thursday evening, falling by 2 points (17-19). The girls fought hard throughout, but had a hard time handling the height advantage that LIS had. Lauren Miller, Zoe Edkin, Abigail Boldt, and Avery Munson capitalized on their hard work in practice, as each came off the bench to provide a valuable spark to the team on the defensive end.

7/8 th Grade Boys
The Eagles opened their week with a visit to Cedar Rapids to play against the Trinity Lutheran Trojans. Despite a valiant effort, the Eagles fell to the Trojans 36-53. Last night, the Eagles were back on their home court against the Lutheran Interparish Panthers. The second half of the game was a hard fought battle against the Panthers, but the Eagles landed victorious with a 37-34 win. Leading scorers were Luke Traetow with 17 points and Trey Schweitzer with 11 points. The Eagles are back at home, looking for another win on Thursday, January 23rd against Isaac Newton.
