The school administration sent out a letter to all the Heritage Football Families saying, “Mike Griebel is no longer coaching for Heritage High School. He has formally retired from his teaching career at the end of the current school year, as well.”
Having been in the works for about two years, 3B passed with a 59.8% vote of support. 3B addressed the need for the Littleton Public School District to improve and update their schools. LPS’s intent for 3B is to keep their funding despite the tax decrease within Littleton. LPS is funded by property taxes, but since these have been decreasing lately, 3B lets LPS collect the same amount of funds as before, despite the lowered taxes. With the funds that they will take in, they’ll improve all the LPS schools including Heritage.
Born on July 18 in 1918, Nelson Mandela was born in Mvezo, South Africa. The first to go to school in his family, he started to be interested in African history while learning Xhosa, English and social studies.
His decision to change the customs in South Africa stemmed not only from school, but also from a ceremony in which he learned that he and his village were enslaved in their own country by the white foreigners. Mandela soon after became actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement, joined the African National Congress, or the ANC, and then because of this, was arrested and confined to prison for 27 years.
