Our Staff Cardinal Spotlight this week is 5th grade teacher, Mr. Gabriel Morin. He is a veteran teacher with many years of experience and even previously taught here in Southside. He returned to our A rated campus this year as a 4th grade dual language teacher, but when classes needed to be rearranged; he happily moved to where he was needed, in 5th grade. Mr. Morin is a proud United States Army veteran and an Eagle Scout. These experiences have helped him become the passionate teacher he is and build strong relationships with his students. Science is his favorite subject to teach and his students benefit from his excitement. Welcome to the team and congratulations!
|Amerie Aranda is a wonderful 5th grade student at Heritage Elementary. A pleasure to have in class, Amerie is an exemplary student who always gives her best effort. Although she is typically quiet in class, her peaceful demeanor and kindness speaks volumes. Her favorite subject is math. Dancing is her favorite pastime. Although she is looking forward to meeting new teachers as a 6th grader, she will miss her favorite teacher, Mrs. Monroy. When she advances to 6th grade, Heritage will miss her, too.|

Book Vending Machine a Big Success!
Heritage Elementary was fortunate enough to receive a Southside Education Foundation grant last year that enabled us to purchase a book vending machine. Students are able to purchase books of their choice by earning a gold coin. To receive a gold coin, students must earn AR (Accelerated Reader) points by reading and passing tests online. We are happy to have this awesome incentive to encourage a love of reading in our students!

Our staff Spotlight this week is Elva Carreon. Ms. Carreon is our new morning custodian. Ms. Carreon is a joy to work with. She has a positive attitude and truly enjoys her job. She takes pride in her work and works incredibly hard to keep Heritage tidy and clean! She is easy to approach and eager to help with a ready smile. Ms. Carreon learned the layout of our school and her responsibilities so fast it feels as though she’s been here for years. We just hope we have the pleasure of her being here for years to come! Welcome to the team!
The Heritage Student Spotlight this week is 2nd grader, Cesario Suarez. Cesario is new to Southside and Heritage this year. He has made a name for himself with a quick smile and a silver tongue. Cesario works hard to be a successful student and aims to please his teacher. In fact, he frequently reminds her of her beauty. Aside from compliments, he is quite the gentleman, often helping others. He demonstrated his genuine and unprompted kindness by helping a peer who was having a very difficult morning. “She was still crying, but I wouldn’t give up.” He sat with her and helped her with the assignment until she felt better. Such kindness makes us so proud of Cesario and exemplifies the Heritage family. Thank you, Cesario for being a kind, sensitive person and our Cardinal of the Week!
