Heritage Receives PLATINUM Award for Excellence in PBIS Receives Silver Award for Excellence in PBIS
Dear Heritage Families,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Heritage Computer Science Academy! Heritage is an amazing school with a dedicated staff, and I am honored to become a part of their educational team. In addition to a focus on technology and next-generation skills, we have multiple programs in place to support student success, including AVID, Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS), and a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS). Our teams work to support and develop the whole child, so they can become a model citizen.
As part of developing the whole child, students at Heritage are taught character strengths and citizenship through the motto S.O.A.R.
- Strive to Do Your Best
- Overcome Obstacles
- Achieve Success
- Respect Yourself & Others
We recognize students following S.O.A.R. through weekly positive phone calls and monthly flag assemblies. These activities help us focus on the positive actions that students are taking on campus, and help build a safe community.
At Heritage, we encourage families to participate in their child’s education. Opportunities to discuss the day, read to family members, or be read to by others all build stronger connections. Parents and other family members may also participate in some of our involvement opportunities such as PTA, English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), or School Site Council (SSC). We also have a monthly Food Pantry to provide healthy food options for our families.
We use the ParentSquare app to send updates and communication, so please make sure your contact information is updated in the parent portal (mykids.ggusd.us).
On behalf of the Heritage Computer Science Academy staff, I would like to wish you a sensational school year. With your help, we can help our Eagle Scholars S.O.A.R.!
Salutations Heritage students and families!
We would like to warmly welcome you the Computer Science Academy. We proudly serve our students by teaching them both the academic skills and the technology skills that are guaranteed to last a lifetime! Activities in Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies are supplemented with technology, coding/programming, and robotics to develop the tools needed for the future.
Our PTA is stronger than ever, with parents and staff meeting once a month to coordinate yearly events. Members run successful fundraisers, support family nights, field trips and assemblies. We are extremely grateful for all their contribution to our students' enriched educational experiences. Participating parents and staff chronically unite to emphasize the importance of community for our scholars.
Heritage's after school programs enforce life skills to teach students about global awareness. Here are our programs:
- After School Intervention consists of teachers assisting students with homework and content pertaining to a certain subject area. This program assists those who need that extra help, so that they may go home ready and confident for exams and classwork.
- The College and Career Mentoring Program prepares sixth graders for the road to college. College mentors from the district come in and teach lesson plans covering emotional and academic life advice for these students. This program strives to educate students on the purpose of their education. Students are also given the chance to open up about matters in their life and the college mentors serve as positive role models.
- Our Academic Pentathlon Team takes on academic challenges after school. Members compete with the district and county. Please come support our team during their competitions!
We hold the "Red Carpet Awards" after every trimester to celebrate students on their wonderful achievements! Students are rewarded for good grades, showing improvement, and meeting yearly goals. We also hold monthly Flag Assemblies where we recognize students demonstrating excellent character traits. These events support development of citizenship and scholarly habits.
Heritage prides itself on being a Multi-tier System of Support School (MTSS). We are also happy to announce that we are a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support School (PBIS). We prioritize a healthy physical and emotional development for our students. Staff does this by ensuring that the class is a safe zone for all. This school year, we will be focusing on ensuring that these goals are met so that our scholars' school year is productive and memorable.
Thank you for visiting our site, and we look forward to having an amazing school year together!
