Heritage School has service learning as a core aspect that underlies the school experience for students. A committee composed of faculty, parents, and students, we are always finding new and continuous experiences for the school community to become involved in. Experiences may range from one-time events like funding for "Homes in Haiti" to on-going projects such as: teaching english to young children at a nearby public school, cleaning up beaches and parks, developing and continuing the school recycling project, serving as translators at public hospitals, amongst others.
A New Year @ Villa Esperanza
The CCHS PTA, teachers, students and parents went to Villa Esperanza to spend time with the students as they begin their new school year. The group passed out new school backpacks, sponsored by the PTA, filled with school supplies. CCHS will continue to partner with the students and staff at Villa Esperanza this school year. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Ana Esteva email@example.com.
