History Of Halloween

What do you think of when you hear the word Halloween? Eating an endless amount of treats, playing scary pranks, or carving giant pumpkins may pop into your mind. October 31 brings a day full of costumes and trick-or-treating. But why do we celebrate Halloween? This spooky holiday dates far back and has changed quite a bit over the years.

Heritage’s 5th Annual Thanksgiving Feast

Join us on Tuesday, November 21, for our annual Thanksgiving Feast, a free event for Heritage students, friends, and family. We’ll have turkey and all the trimmings, courtesy of the generous food donations made by Heritage families.

Discoverer’s Day

The second Monday in October is a U.S. holiday celebrating the discovery of the New World. Discoverer’s Day, also known as Columbus Day, acknowledges Christopher Columbus’ finding of America, as well as the other important early explorers that came after him. Additional notable voyagers include Lewis and Clark, James Cook, Henry Hudson, and Amerigo Vespucci.
