Cow Bingo and Powder Puff Football

Bingo at Heidelberg Academy has a long history.  From George Wilson to each member of every eleventh grade class at the school, Bingo has provided hours of entertainment at Heidelberg Academy.  While traditional bingo still continues during Fall Fest, we are bringing back Cow Bingo September 13, 2014.  Stella, the cow, will take the field at 5:00 p.m. and choose who will win $1,000.  Tickets may be purchased, for $10.00 each, from any Heidelberg Academy parent or by calling the school office at 601-787-4589.  Rules for Cow Bingo are on the school website under concerts and events at  All proceeds for Cow Bingo go to support the general operations of the school. 

If watching Stella roam around the baseball field to decide who wins $1,000 seems uneventful and boring, we are offering spectators another alternative.  Beginning at 3:30 p.m. our flag football team will play a game as our female teachers, and senior girls, ready themselves to begin their game of Powder Puff Football at 5:00 p.m.  Mr. Hagan and Coach Taylor will coach the teams, and football experts Jan Bustin and Brenda Thatch will referee the game.  Of course no Heidelberg Academy event is complete without food.  The Booster Club is currently taking preorders for ribeye steak sandwiches (shhhhhh…. Don’t tell Stella), beans, chips, and tea for $10.00 a plate.  The plates will be ready at 4:30 p.m.  If you would like to order a plate, please contact a booster club member soon.  You may also call the school office at 601-787-4589 to place an order.

September 13, 2014 is sure to be a “Cowabunga” good time at Heidelberg Academy!  Please, come out and enjoy the day while supporting the schools fundraising efforts.  If you would like to help make the day a success by volunteering, we need you!  Success is never by mere chance; it results from forces working together.

Heidelberg Academy August 13, 2014 Open House

The 2014-2015 school year is in full swing at Heidelberg Academy.  Our softball team is off to a great start with an 8-4 record, which is impressive considering they have only played one 1A team.  Meet the Rebels is August 15, 2014 at 7:00pm.  We will play a scrimmage game against Russell, so come out and support our football team, as they get ready to begin their season.   

Open House was very well attended, and gave parents an opportunity to meet with teachers; however, the highlight of the evening took place when Ms. Bustin showed her dance moves with Eddie Walker.  Ms. Bustin displayed her ballroom dancing abilities as a testament to Heidelberg Academy’s new dance instructor, Glinda Jones.  Additionally, those in attendance enjoyed a karate demo by instructor Chris Bush.  Dance and Karate are new activities offered at Heidelberg Academy.  These two additions offer opportunities for students to develop kinesthetic intelligence and artistic expression. 

We are hoping for a great school year!  Let’s pray for the teachers as they impart knowledge to our students, and pray that the knowledge gained will be used to the fullest extent.  Our students can change the world with hard work and determination.
