Principal's Corner

Dear Parents, Guardians and Families,


Welcome back!!! On behalf of the distinguished staff at Heritage Elementary school, we want to extend a sincere welcome to the 2021-2022 school year.


We are elated to have our Hawks return to us after experiencing an unprecedented disruption to our public school system. We are looking forward to a productive partnership in which we hope you will take comfort in knowing that we truly believe that learning is non-negotiable. At the center of this stance is a deep belief that equipping students to take charge of their learning reduces dependency and empowers children. As we celebrate our 20th year anniversary this school year, our goal at Heritage remains the same: it is to ensure that students are progressing towards being contributors in a global society. We celebrate diversity, values, and multilingualism. We are committed to excellence in promoting diverse, engaging first instruction, and meaningful learning with the "whole-child" in mind. We look forward to serving you and providing your child/children with the best education possible.  


We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child's education. Our parent organizations enrich the education of your child. The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), School Site Council (SSC), English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), and the classrooms welcome your participation. On behalf of the Heritage staff, we thank you for your support and look forward to working with you during the 2021-2022 school year. 


Your partners in education, 


Ruth Diaz de Leon,   Principal 
Dr. Karon Schnitzer,  Associate Principal
