Taxpayers often wonder where their money goes, is it really having an effect on education today?
On Tuesday, Feb. 24 from 7:45 a.m. to noon, Heritage High School in Vancouver opens the school doors to community patrons for their annual Community Connections Day.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with students, visit classrooms and see firsthand how Heritage High School is equipping students to be world-competitive upon graduation.
They will also be asked for feedback on how they believe education can be improved.
Community members will be treated to a continental breakfast with a student ambassador and band performance. Visitors will then participate in classroom visitations and a guided tour of the school facilities. The event allows plenty of time for community members to speak with students and ask questions. It will conclude with a lunch provided by The Old Spaghetti Factory and Olive Garden.
"This event has become one of our key annual events," said Heritage High School Principal Anne Sosky. "Over the years, Heritage has formed valuable partnerships with businesses and community groups. They have all been extremely supportive and we want them to see how we are best using our resources to meet the needs of students. The added benefit is that the event provides a way for our business partners to seek out potential candidates for internships and future employment."
The event is free and is open to all community members, but RSVPs are requested. To RSVP, please contact Randy Brosius, Heritage High School Associate Principal at: 360-604-3400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
