Good day, Heritage MS Students and Families,

Here’s to a great start to October! It’s incredible to think that we’re entering Autumn and about to finish the 1st 9 weeks this Friday, October 7th. As the temperatures drop, let’s continue to raise the bar for kindness, excellence, safety and Husky PRIDE! We are #HuskyStrong together!

 Now, here are some Husky Happenings for the week of October 3-7, 2022:

  1. Here is the #HuskyStrong Action Challenge video for last week’s Word, which was Synergy! Check it out and then submit your Action Challenge answer on the #HuskyStrong Google Form. The Word of the Week Google Form is also in your Counselor Connection Course in Schoology! And we’re also starting a new HOWLanguage Search for the prefix “co” (ex. cooperate). Listen and look for words with that prefix and put them on the HOWLanguage form. Keep all of these submissions going! Our race for the Top House is getting really close–and really exciting! What House will win the end of the 9 weeks House Party? 

  2. Interested in signing up for a Parent-Teacher Conference on Oct. 13 (in person) or Oct. 20 (virtual)? Just follow the simple steps in this document–and reach out to your student’s teachers if you have any questions, concerns, etc.

  3. The HMS Fall Fundraiser ends on October 11!  Remember that all details are on this flier, which should have come home last Tuesday.  The top 25 earners get 5 PRIDE tickets, 10 Points for the Houses, and a chance to throw a pie at Dr. Tomlin and Mr. Gartrell!

  4. Time to raise the praise by giving a HMS teacher, staff member or fellow student a HuskyStrong 4 A Award for September. All you have to do is complete this short HuskyStrong 4 A Award Google Form by Oct. 5, and we’ll do the rest!

  5. Let’s hit the slopes with the HMS Ski Club!  If you are interested in joining Heritage Ski & Board Club 2023, go ahead and click on the link below! It will open a Google form for you to fill out; an auto email will be sent to you with all the information on how to officially sign up for Ski Club 2023 including how to purchase club passes at Snow Trails (with the discounted rates), transportation from Heritage, and filling out medical forms in Final Forms! The Google Form will also give you your official spot number on the bus out of the 50 members we can take this year! SIGN UP for SKI CLUB 2023. Should you have any questions, please reply to Mr. Lewis ( and/or our newest advisor Ms. Keller (! 

  6. 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!

We’re going to keep HOWLing for success by being Helpful, taking Ownership, Working together, and Learning daily! Thanks for all that you do on the homefront! If there’s anything you think we should know or anything you need, please reach out to a teacher, counselor or administrator by calling 614-797-6600 or emailing me at

Dr. Tomlin and your Heritage MS Family
