During April and May, our students collected pledges for our annual Operation G.O.O.D. fundraiser and raised $45,248.26. On Friday, May 11th, our students participated in the service project portion of the fundraiser. Our Pre-K students took part in a canned food drive in our neighborhood and collected 53 cans to bring to the North Liberty Food Pantry. Our kindergarten through 3rd graders worked with the Army Corps of Engineers pulling 1600 pounds of invasive garlic mustard, which translates to an estimated 8.4 million seeds removed from the ecosystem at Squire Point. The 4th-8th graders teamed up with the city of North Liberty working at the North Liberty Food Pantry and at 3 city parks spreading 100 cubic feet of mulch around 350 trees. Praise God for the generous contributions of family and friends as well as the opportunity to serve our community in this way!

In 1 Corinthians 12:4-7, we read,
“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit, and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”
Each of our students have been created by God with a variety of gifts. Some have been given gifts of creativity, others athletic gifts, others gifts of compassion, and others gifts of music. Whatever gifts we have received, we are called to use them for His Kingdom and glory. This winter, our students were given an opportunity to demonstrate their gifts in the areas of writing and math, through two competitions organized by ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International). For the ACSI Math Olympics, students took a series of qualifying math tests to determine who would compete regionally. For the Creative Writing competition, the students in middle school were asked to submit their top writing piece according to the qualifications determined by ACSI. In celebration and thanksgiving for the math and writing gifts God has blessed these students with, we would to recognize the following students.

Grandparents Day is a day set aside to honor grandparents. All grandparents of Heritage students are invited and encouraged to come and spend ½ day of school with their grandchildren.
Where should grandparents go upon arrival to the school?
Grandparents should go to the gym upon arrival. A breakfast/brunch will be waiting for them there.
What if you don’t have a grandparent close by, can you bring someone else?
Feel free to invite a “surrogate” grandparent.
How will everyone be dismissed from school this day?
Students will be dismissed from the Heritage Christian School gymnasium. Names will be called and students will be dismissed. Keep an eye on your students and make sure that if grandparents are taking them home, we know it.
Let your LIGHT shine! Please join us for a night of fun and fundraising as we celebrate God’s faithfulness to Heritage Christian School. We’ll be holding our annual Educating for Eternity Fundraising Banquet on Friday, March 2, at the Bella Sala Event Center in Tiffin. Doors will open at 5PM for the Silent Auction with dinner following at 6PM. At 7PM, Megan Fate Marshman will share how Christian education has affected her life and impacted her drive for sharing the gospel. As the Young Adults Pastor at Arbor Road Church in Long Beach, California, Megan is helping make disciples who make disciples who love the Church and each other. Join us as we are inspired to continue investing in the children of the future so that they can light up the community with love, light, reach the lost, change lives, and inspire others around them. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased here.
The Educating for Eternity Banquet is Heritage Christian School’s largest annual fundraiser. Please join us in support of Heritage Christian School as they serve families within the Iowa City, North Liberty and Coralville area with biblically faithful, academically excellent education. Heritage Christian School representatives will be available during the event to answer questions you may have about our school and its mission to raise children who love and serve Jesus Christ.
The 8th graders have been enjoying the school’s partnership with Keystone on Forevergreen. Back in October they invited some residents to come to school to share their own personal stories over a cup of tea. The 8th graders then spent a few weeks writing and revising those personal narratives for them. In November our students were able to go to Keystone and present those finished stories to the residents. What a blessing for both our students and the residents at Keystone!
Over the past two weeks, the 1st grade class has been learning basic economic principles. Based on a book they read, students began making a lemonade stand to practice their economic and money counting skills. Throughout the unit, students were challenged to consider how they can help others using the resources God has given them, so on Thursday and Friday, January 18 and 19, from 11:20-12:20, the first grade students sold glasses of lemonade for $.25, with all the proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity. Thanks to the students, staff, and parents, the 1st graders raised nearly $118!

Heritage Christian School pre-kindergarten serves families in the North Liberty, Coralville and Iowa City Area. Four and five-year-olds become comfortable in the classroom setting under the instruction of certified teachers that are passionate about teaching and nurturing each child as they prepare for the transition into kindergarten. More information can be found on our pre-k page.
Heritage parents shared this with us on a survey about the 2014-2015 pre-K school year:
“It has been very structured and the kids know what to expect each day. We like the encouragement from our teacher and the way we have seen our child grow this year. We really appreciate the intentional focus on making Christ Lord over every aspect of creation, which includes education!”
“There is a genuine love for the Lord from the teachers, staff, and community that is truly evident.”
“I appreciate that the Pre-K program is structured more like a Kindergarten program than a preschool. My son has learned so much more at Heritage than he would have at another preschool.”
“Heritage Pre-K reinforces what we teach.”
