A New Year Begins at Heritage Hall

by Esha Venkataraman '23

On Wednesday, August 17, Heritage Hall opened its doors for the 2022-23 school year. Several traditional activities led up to the start of school to welcome students new to the Upper School and kick off the seniors’ final year of high school.

Among them, senior peer leaders led the August 14th Freshman and New Student Orientation, which provides students a great way to meet one another and familiarize themselves with their home for the next four years. That evening, all seniors gathered for the parking lot auction to secure their parking spaces for the coming year. The fun and often chaotic fundraising event benefits the senior class fund. Following the auction, the group went outside to paint their cars and chalk their newly acquired parking spots with classic senior slogans while enjoying a DJ, pizza, and snow cones. 

On Tuesday, August 16, the seniors woke up extra early to meet on the practice field at 6:30 am to enjoy the sunrise together. Students also enjoyed visiting over smoothies and taking one of the first of what is sure to be many class photos to come this year.
Heritage Hall is a co-educational college preparatory school in Oklahoma City. As one of the few secular private schools in the state, we offer a challenging academic curriculum for students from preschool through grade 12, as well as unique leadership opportunities, a wide spectrum of athletics, and a well developed fine arts program.
