Principal's Corner

Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year!

Hello Heritage Family! I would like to welcome you to Madison City Schools and to Heritage Elementary School. For those new to the Heritage family, I would like to extend a very special welcome. We are all looking forward to getting to know all of our students and their families throughout this school year.

The teachers and staff here at Heritage are very talented and passionate about their daily work with our students.  Everyone's primary goal here at Heritage is to provide the most effective instructional programs and a successful learning community for all of our students.  At Heritage our teachers continue their professional learning throughout each school year in many ways to fine-tune and learn more about the best teaching strategies for your children. Each year the teachers examine and analyze test data and various other forms of data to determine the most effective instructional strategies for the students in their classrooms. This process continues throughout the school year, and as a result, the teachers collaboratively plan and develop instructional lessons which address the multiple learning styles and learning needs for all of our students.

I am proud to say, we are recognized by the Alabama Department of Education as an Alabama Reading Initiative Site (ARI) and an Alabama Math Science Technology Initiative (AMSTI) site. We have also been awarded the AR Model and Master School status. 

We have many exciting activities and changes planned for this school year. We solicit your input and support throughout the year. At Open House, as well as the first few weeks of school, you will be given an opportunity to join the wonderful Heritage PTA. I would like to encourage you to do so. It is essential that we, as a family, work together to collectively reach our goals for our students and our school.

I would like to encourage you to sign up for the “NOTIFY ME” system located on the school’s website so you will receive the latest pertinent news directly from the school. As in years past, we will post information to the “Notify Me” system instead of emailing through distribution lists. However, you must sign up to receive the information.

Again, I would like to say, “Welcome to Heritage Elementary School.”
