HENKING HAPPENINGS

CHAMPS Corner

Our CHAMPS target for the month of April is: “I can keep my hands, feet, and objects to myself in the hallway.”

Screen Free Week

Screen Free Week is April 25-29, 2016. All students are invited to observe this week! A number of local businesses have partnered with us to encourage students in their screen-free endeavors with great discounts.  Thursday, April 28th is a district-wide No Homework Night, giving students the opportunity to take advantage of great activities and discounts being offered. 

Bicycle Training and Safety unit

1st & 2nd grade students will be participating in a Bicycle Training and Safety unit during their PE classes during the weeks of April 11th & 18th. Please have your child dressed to be outside as we will only cancel for rain. For safety purposes, all students will be required to wear a helmet and gym shoes. Students should bring their own properly pre-fitted helmet from home. For fitting tips you may choose to visit: www.helmets.org/fit.htm Please write your child’s name on their helmet.  We will have a very limited amount of helmets available to borrow at school. Students will ride in small groups on school property and Crowley Park so we are in need of parent volunteers to help with small groups of 5-10 students.  Please sign up on the volunteer form at tinyurl.com/bikeHenking.

Monarch Book Awards Results

Henking students had been listening to and deciding on which of the 20 nominated books for The Monarch Award: Illinois' K-3 Readers' Choice Award was the best of the best!  It was one of the tightest races we've had but the voting results for Henking's top three books were, The Dark with 35% of the votes, This is a Moose with 34% of the votes and in a close third, Lost Cat with 31% of the votes.  All our voting totals have been submitted and the Illinois School Library Media Association will be tabulating the results from all K-3 schools in the state and the Monarch Award winner will be announced within the next few weeks.
