ACSI Math Olympics and Creative Writing Festival Results

In 1 Corinthians 12:4-7, we read,

“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit, and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”

Each of our students have been created by God with a variety of gifts. Some have been given gifts of creativity, others athletic gifts, others gifts of compassion, and others gifts of music. Whatever gifts we have received, we are called to use them for His Kingdom and glory. This winter, our students were given an opportunity to demonstrate their gifts in the areas of writing and math, through two competitions organized by ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International). For the ACSI Math Olympics, students took a series of qualifying math tests to determine who would compete regionally. For the Creative Writing competition, the students in middle school were asked to submit their top writing piece according to the qualifications determined by ACSI. In celebration and thanksgiving for the math and writing gifts God has blessed these students with, we would to recognize the following students.

Grandparents Day 2017 – April 21

Grandparents Day is a day set aside to honor grandparents. All grandparents of Heritage students are invited and encouraged to come and spend ½ day of school with their grandchildren.

Where should grandparents go upon arrival to the school?

Grandparents should go to the gym upon arrival. A breakfast/brunch will be waiting for them there.

What if you don’t have a grandparent close by, can you bring someone else?

Feel free to invite a “surrogate” grandparent.

How will everyone be dismissed from school this day?
Students will be dismissed from the Heritage Christian School gymnasium. Names will be called and students will be dismissed. Keep an eye on your students and make sure that if grandparents are taking them home, we know it.

Educating for Eternity Banquet

The Educating for Eternity banquet (EFE) is Heritage Christian School’s largest annual fundraiser. Donations given during this event help offset annual operating costs and allow the school’s leadership to keep tuition costs as low as possible. Consider attending this event and help support what God is doing at Heritage.

This year’s banquet will take place on Saturday, March 4, 2017, at the Bella Sala Event Center in Tiffin. We’re excited to have added a Silent Auction this year. The doors will open at 5pm so you can browse a variety of auction items generously donated by local (and some not so local) businesses. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to bid on vacation packages, Disney tickets, gift baskets, hand crafted items, teacher outings, and much more! Dinner will be served at 6pm with dessert and a social time to follow. Our evening will be capped off with Rick Green who will speak about how to equip a new generation of leaders to champion the cause of freedom and truth in government, media, entertainment, and education, as we help bring our nation back to the principles on which we were founded.

Tickets for the event are $25. Buy Tickets here. Additional information about the event and Rick Green can be found on our website here.

This EFE banquet is not only about raising money for the school. It’s also a great opportunity to share with friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors what Heritage is all about. We’d love for you to join us and spread the word about our school and its mission to raise children who love and serve Jesus Christ.
