Penny Drop, the annual event where we spend a week focusing on school spirit and competitive giving, is an exciting time for Heritage. Friends and family members donate to a specific grade in its pursuit of various prizes. Previous Penny Drop Donation Contest proceeds have been used to fund technology in the classrooms, transportation enhancements, and other vital needs. This year’s theme was the circus! 

Throughout the week, each grade earned points by participating in themed dress-up days, competing in pep rally games and bucket decorating competitions, and collecting daily cash donations. The “Spirit Stick” was awarded each day for the loudest and most spirited grade. By the end of the week, students in each grade had formed lasting bonds and memories with their fellow HCA students, and even got to dunk a few teachers and administrators in the dunk tank.
