Extra Curricular Tax Donations (ECA Tax Donations)
The fall is giving season and a great time for families to max out their ECA on Heritage programs before the end of the year if you haven’t already.
In the last legislative session, there were a few new expenses that are now eligible to be funded with ECA money.
Here’s an updated reference document on this topic from the AZ Dept of Revenue.

Fall Sports Banquet
Heritage Academy Booster Club would like to invite all fall sports athletes and their parents to a Banquet.
The cost is $10.00 per person (the fee will cover food, and awards)
(If you have scholars in both Jr High & High School and will be attending both events please complete both RSVP forms…you will only be required to pay once!)
We also do not want the fee to discourage anyone’s attendance!!!  Please reach out to coach Leavitt if the fee will prevent you from attending.
Julie Akin is our booster club President and will be organizing this event for our scholars, we would like at least one parent from each team to assist her.  Please email coach Leavitt if you are able to help Julie.  Thank you.
An RSVP form is attached to this email please complete the form & return it to Coach Leavitt or the front desk with payment .
