This week we said goodbye to Mr. Leybas who has been with Heritage Academy Laveen since our opening in 2014. He has been pivotal to making our school what it is today and we are sad to see him go.
Today we welcome our new principal, Mrs. Asanovich, and our new assistant principal, Mrs. Weiler. Both are familiar faces on campus and are well-loved by both scholars and staff. Their dedication to our campus has been proven and we are fortunate to have them in these new capacities. We are excited to have them!
Scholars can now have online access to the Microsoft suite online through Office 365. This is a useful tool to assist in their online learning. Mr. Smith will be on campus from 8-12, Monday-Thursday, September 21-24 to assist with set-up. Stop in if you are interested.
