Which Shoes Will You Choose? Written By Allison C. (Class of 2017)

Boots by Allison C.

    The Heritage School is a school of choice—a choice of shoes for sure. Short, tall, tucked in, you name it. All are for the same purpose but which ones are for you? Shoes represent how grounded we are and our ability to maneuver on the path we have chosen.
            The diversity of The Heritage School is amongst us all. Rainy days are dull, but what about the colorful rain boots in the middle? They provide protection from the oozing muck on the ground around campus—but she's bringing sunshine to the rain with all the color. She is bold and confident with her ways. The work boots allow a walk through the thick and thin of life—whatever it may be. The scuffed up, rustic mess implies the hard worker he is—these individual boots guiding him to work in the field in his future. She’s been skipping down streets in her white converse, but she doesn't pay attention to the dirt that covers them. She doesn't let it stop her from the casual walk through life. The Bean boots on the right are worn down from all of the effort she has put into her walk. Each step of life she ties up one more lace hole. When she's done, they will be tied to the top. The charcoal rain boots are sleek and fit well, but what about the pebble inside of them. She battles diabetes every day and that pebble will never go away. From the outside, no one would know that she's facing such a hard challenge because she overcomes it. The shininess of the boots shows her power.
            There is more to life than what we think. We pay so much attention to the things that do not even matter. I believe it’s time we start focusing on the things that do—our shoes—our paths of life. Each one is different and unique—each one deserving attention from more than just the ground.     How lucky we are to in a place that empowers each of us to choose our own door and step through it with confidence.

Drop Everything and Serve
Monday, January 05, 2015

 

On December 19, Fifth through Twelfth graders participated in the first student-driven "Drop Everything and Serve" service day at The Heritage School. The fourteen Jubilee teams dropped everything to serve their community. They made pet beds with first graders to donate to the humane society, sang carols and delivered cookies to our fire station neighbors, and delivered homemade ornaments and sang carols to residents at Wesley Woods. Students also made blankets for patients at the Cancer Treatment Center, wrote letters to service men and women, cleaned the Heritage campus, wrapped presents for faculty, and assembled stockings and gifts for the families adopted by our Fellowship of Christian Athletes. These service projects were developed by students who identified community needs and executed their action plans in collaboration with Heritage faculty. 

Service learning is a vital part of our mission to develop the Mind, Body, Spirit, and Camaraderie of our students. It began in August for Middle and Upper Schoolers with the adoption of a school-wide initiative to raise funds and awareness for Stop Hunger Now. With student leadership from Key and Builders Clubs members, funds have been collected throughout the first semester towards our goal to feed over 10,000 families in the spring.

Service at The Heritage School is not mandatory; it is a part of who we are!
