There’s a lot of things happening here at Heritage Middle this week. Ms. Telford’s 7th grade science classes sought out simple machines in action around the school. Dr. Peter Powell recently came to speak to any and all  8th grade students who expressed an interest in the medical field. Dr. Powell has practiced in internal medicine/pediatrics and primary and urgent care as well as the administrative side of medicine for almost 20 years. We thank him for coming in to share his knowledge of these different aspects of the medical field. On february 6, Tadd Himelrick, the IHS German teacher, spoke with 8th grade students who have expressed an interest in taking German for their foreign language requirement. Go Hornets #compete!
