Principal's Message

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 
  • Class Placements available on ParentVue on Friday, August 24th 5:00PM
  • Kindergarten Orientation (Parents/Students) Monday, August 27th 5:00-6:30PM
  • First Day of School Wednesday, August 29th (Minimum Day: Grades 1-5 9:00AM- 2:00PM)
  • All TK/Kindergarten AM/PM will follow the 9:00AM-1:00PM schedule through 8/29-9/14
  • Labor Day Holiday Monday, September 3rd
  • Back to School Night:  Thursday, September 6th, 5:30PM in the auditorium

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.
