Principal's Message

September 4-8, 2023

Good day, Heritage Students and Families! 

First, I hope this message finds everyone doing well and enjoying a wonderful, long Labor Day weekend with family and friends. Our Huskies did another great job last week! We’re already done so much this year: Curriculum Night, Picture Day, iReady diagnostic assessments, and so much more! Thanks in advance for everything you’re going to do on the homefront to support our teachers and staff at the school house throughout September—and beyond!


Here are some Husky Happenings for the week of Sept. 4-8, 2023:

  1. Please check out this week’s #HuskyStrong video for information, appreciation, celebration and, of course, House updates! Every Husky is encouraged to submit their thoughts about this video on the #HuskyStrong Google Form by Friday, Sept. 8. This form will also be in every students’ Lunch Course in Schoology. Every submission is worth 10 points for your House, Huskies!

  2. Do you want to raise the praise for a HMS teacher/staff member or student? Just fill out the #HuskyStrong 4 A’s Award form for August by Wednesday, September 6. Students can give them to teachers or fellow students! And families can give them to their students and teachers, too! Dr. Tomlin will get your award information and print off certificates for you to give out! It’s that easy! 

  3. REMINDER! All students will be taking the Panorama survey between September 6-October 6 in their Science classes. Please read this short letter about this critical survey.  If you need more information about this survey, contact your student’s counselor. If you don’t want your student to take the survey, that should have been indicated on the form in the letter by Wednesday, September 6th.

  4. Club Update! Clubs at Heritage MS will kick off this week. Check out the Club information document and then email the club sponsor to let them know that you’re interested in participating. It’s that simple! 

  5. Husky “Next Level” Athletics this week! Best of luck to our HMS scholar-athletes--and to all of our Huskies who also participate in club sports!

Thanks again for everything you’re doing to keep your student #HuskyStrong all year long! If you have any questions, concerns, ideas, etc., please reach out anytime– or 614-797-6600. With all of that in mind, keep your eyes on the prize and seize every day with kindness, excellence, safety, and Husky PRIDE! Let’s keep HOWLing for Success in 23-24!


#HuskyStrong All Year Long,

Dr. Tomlin and your Heritage MS Family
