A Message from Scholar Council:
Greetings Heritage Academy Heroes!
We hope that your school year has been great so far. We know that the past month has been challenging for everyone and that online school comes with its own trials. The best we can do to overcome these challenges is to be connected and remain positive.
To alleviate some stress and for some fun for your week, come participate in our online Virtual Spirit Week September 14-17, for a chance to win Sunrise Donuts! What we need most in a time like this is to be connected with our peers and something to look forward to, and what better way to do that than with donuts and dressing up!
To participate, simply post a picture of yourself on Instagram story or feed pertaining to the theme for that day and tag @halscholarcouncil in your posts or use the hashtag #HALspiritweek to enter for the chance to win Sunrise Donuts! The Scholar Council will be picking a winner for each day. In total four winners will be chosen at the end of the week.
Remember, in order to participate, tag@halscholarcouncil in your posts or use the hashtag #HALspiritweek to enter! We hope you have fun, and good luck!

- To enter the competition for scholarships from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (grade 11).
- To assess your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study.
- To see how your performance on admissions tests compares to other students applying to college.
