•  Dear Heritage Community

    Welcome to the 2021 2022 school year. On behalf of Mr. Palkovitz, and the entire staff we would like extend a genuinely warm welcome to all of you as we start this next school year.

    Let me tell you a little about Heritage as well as a little about Heritage Administrators and staff.  Heritage has been coined as “the gem of Red Clay.”  Well, to be completely honest, we are the ones who gave Heritage this name!  But, we sincerely believe we are a gem of a K – 5 school embracing the very best of what you would expect from an excellent K-5 setting for your child(ren).

    We value a commitment to strong academics, strong character development, and strong emotional support for all of our students.  We do all of this with love and attention to the whole child.  We fully recognize that each child develops in their own unique way!  We value each child’s gifts and talents and appreciate our role in building independence and student ownership as we progress through the many phases of childhood development. 

    Our Admin team, which includes myself and Mr. Palkovitz ,have a pretty good handle on childhood development.  I am the proud mother of 6 children, 3 sons and 3 daughters and the proud grandmother of 7 grandchildren. I am proud to say my children are all wonderful adults and, of course, my grandchildren are very close to perfect!  Mr. Palkovitz is the proud father of 4 school aged children, 2 daughters and 2 sons.  Mr. Palkovitz is an amazing father who, along with his wife, engage their children in fun activities including – watering trees at Heritage!

    Our Heritage staff functions like a family.  Our staff is steady and consistent with many of our teachers selecting Heritage as the school for their own children to attend.  The staff support each other, collaborate to meet all students needs, and enjoy being a part of the Heritage Community.  We often talk about the joy in our career choices of education and our joy in being committed to Heritage students.

    We value you as parents – every day!  We see our community as a partnership with your home.  We hope to be continuing the development of good character traits that you are focusing on at home.  We welcome your phone calls and emails regarding any area of concern.  It is our hope that you join PTA, attend school functions, and truly feel that Heritage is a place that you can call your 2nd home for the years your child(ren) are in elementary school.

    Have a wonderful year!
