About Us

Welcome to the Heritage Elementary School Parent Teacher Association!!

 

Great things come from working together!

HES PTA prides itself in having a strong, cooperative working arrangement with School Principal Dr. Denise Tillery and the wonderful faculty/staff at Heritage Elementary School.

We are there every day in the lives of your students at HES… from the PTA sponsored cultural arts performances they see throughout the year, to the fun Hurricane HERO’s Hustle Fun Run, Fall Family Event, the Book Fair, Staff Goody days, Reflections program, Teacher Appreciation Week, HES Spirit Wear, Food Drive and many more activities.

The HES PTA has funded a number of improvements over its 13-year history, including playground drinking fountains, play equipment, a shade structure, picnic tables, and numerous technology enhancements including laptops for teachers, iPads – new computers for classrooms, SmartBoards for classrooms and more.

 

The PTA succeeds only with the commitment and enthusiasm of its membership volunteers and leaders.


We are proud to support the Heritage Hurricanes!

Meet Our Mascots

Hes & Tracker

Hes has been a longtime friend to Heritage Elementary! For a while now, he’s been touring the world gathering more knowledge to share with our students. Along the way, he met this adorable dog named Tracker and became great friends.


So much so, Tracker followed Hes back to Wake Forest…

Since then, Hes has been offered a new job at the National Weather Service to teach children about weather and the world around them. While he’s away, Tracker agreed to stay and watch over our school to help students learn about respect, discipline, making healthy food choices, getting plenty of exercise every day and trying their very best in all of their classes.
