Message from Principal

Dear Henry Families,


As you are enjoying the last couple of weeks of summer, I am looking forward to our new school year together! 


I would like to extend a special welcome to all of our new families joining Henry this year and welcome back all of our returning families as well. At Henry our goal is to work together to provide our students with a rich learning environment.  In a collaborative effort, we want our students to thrive in all ways possible.  As a community of learners we strive to nurture a learning environment that is positive, safe, caring, and supports diverse learning styles. 


As we begin another school year at Henry, we would like to make you aware of our upcoming events to help you support your child's education.  I encourage you and your family to calendar the following important dates. 

  • Our office will reopen on Monday, August 20th, 7:30AM-4:00PM through 8/28 
  • Office hours will return to regular schedule on 8/29 8:00AM-4:30PM

In an effort to conserve paper, Henry Elementary will not be sending home a parent handbook. We will post the parent handbook on our website, a copy will be available in the office if you should need one.  You will be able to read with your child all about each school policy and other important information at your convenience.  If ever you have questions about the website, please call the school.  We are happy to help answer any questions. 


Enjoy the last few weeks of your summer break.  I look forward to another successful year at Henry Elementary and working together to support our learning community.




Veronica Madrigal, Principal




Science Night

Science Night is a fun night to come together as a community.


We have a lot of fun science planned: slime, robots, reptiles, games, hands-on activities, bubbles, art, student work, and much more PLUS a surprise guest. 


We are in need of volunteers to help with the science booths.  We currently have 2 volunteers and need 16 volunteers to help with the booths.  If you are interested in helping, please visit our PTA website via our school website. 


Thank you for your support!

These meetings help the school district to strategize programs to support Pacific Islander students.  View the attached flier for details and a schedule of meetings through September.


State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.
