Heritage Singers/Jubilate Information

2nd-8th grade parents should carefully read the informational letter in their child's Friday Folder pertaining to Heritage Singers and Jubilate. ALL 2nd-8th GRADE STUDENTS should return a form, indicating if they are participating in Heritage Singers/Jubilate or not. Please turn these forms into the office by Monday, September 9. Feel free to contact Miss Early ( earlyn@hcs-nl.com ) or Amy Sherman ( shermana@hcs-nl.com ) with any questions you have regarding Heritage Singers/Jubilate.
Heritage FAQ

If you're new to Heritage (or just don't know all the ins and outs), Heritage H.A.N.D.S. has come up with a document (click here) highlighting some things that may answer some of your questions or just give you a heads up. Heritage H.A.N.D.S. is a great resource for getting connected and becoming part of the Heritage family!
Lunch Server Needed

We still need one more server to help out on Thursdays. Serving lunch is a fun way to get to know the teachers and students at Heritage! If you're not able to help out, pass the opportunity along to a grandparent or friend - they don't have to be directly connected to the school. If you would like to serve but can't commit to every week due to having younger children and finding childcare for them, we have a parent interested in setting up a "share the fun" possibility...take turns serving lunch one week and supervise a play date with your young ones the next! Let me know if you're interested in pursuing that option. The time commitment is from 11am-12:30pm. 
 
Please call or email Brenda Wichhart in the office if you are willing to serve in this capacity . ( wichhartb@hcs-nl.com or 319-626-4777 )
Before and 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 Before and After School Supervisors from 7-8am and/or 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).
