Welcome to the Principals page at Heritage Elementary School. I am very proud of Heritage. It is a gem of a school and I would love to share a little about what happens here. First, Heritage is a part of the Red Clay Consolidated School System. Red Clay is a strong and innovative district that is known for inclusive practices, consistent and high quality teacher professional development, and a constant focus on success for all. Heritage Elementary is a K-5 school that is nestled in the Pike Creek Valley and is truly an extension of your home. Heritage has a highly effective staff that is committed to your child. Heritage has had a steady team for many years. This adds to the community feeling that is at Heritage – we know our families and they know us! At Heritage, the staff practices Love and Logic for building relationships and student ownership of their actions. Preserving the dignity of all students in all situations and helping to guide students as they grow and develop into young adults. The intent at Heritage is that we nurture the child so they will be productive members of our community, as well as, their middle school and high school communities and beyond. In addition, we strive for academic excellence by offering a full time TAG (talented and gifted teacher) and a full time Reading Specialist so all students are receiving what they need to reach their next goal! Within our classrooms, Heritage teachers offer a safe and happy learning environment. Creative strategies, purposeful lessons, and a variety of approaches leads our students to feel comfortable yet challenged with their learning and know that it takes one-step at a time to reach our goals.
If you were ever interested in visiting our school, please call our office and we would be happy schedule a tour! In the meantime, if you pass our little hidden gem, know there are good things happening here at Heritage!
