Happy New Year!

Just a couple of days ago, the “rollover” occurred, signaling the start of the 2018-19 school year. The rollover moves students from one grade to the next in our database. We celebrated students “moving up” in June; this is the electronic moving up event.

Welcome to the new year and, if you are a sixth grader, welcome to Henley! Despite having empty halls and classrooms, we have been very busy with summer activities. Our teachers have been actively participating in professional development, our custodial staff has been preparing our spaces, construction crews have been creating our new learning labs, and our counseling/admin staff has been hiring new teachers and finalizing students’ schedules. We have accomplished a lot and we have a lot left to accomplish.

I hope you all have been having a great summer and I look forward to seeing you on Monday, August 20 from 3:00-5:00 for our Open House event. It is an opportunity for all students to walk their schedule prior to the first day of school and to meet your teachers. Please save the date!
