Principal’s Message

I would like to welcome everyone back from Spring Break. Appreciation is defined as the recognition and enjoyment of the good qualities of someone or something. At this time, I would like to recognize and salute the efforts of our PTA, all of our Heroes parents and staff for the amazing preparation and support for our activities and fundraisers. The funds raised  will be used in so many important ways to serve all students at Heroes and my staff and I truly appreciate the time, funding and commitment it takes to make that contribution.On a personal note, I am also very appreciative in working with, and serving a community, that has so much respect for education and students. Thank you!

Maria Duran Smith
