The 2nd grade Fine Arts Showcase, "Citizens of the World," will take place on Thursday, December 18 at 10:00am and 1:30pm. 2nd grade students have been learning stories, music, and movements, as well as creating artwork inspired by the continents of the world. The AM performance will feature students from Mrs. Cuaresma, Mr. Nudelman, Ms. Amaden, Mrs. Selner/Mrs. Levin, and Mrs. Kim’s classes. The PM performance will feature students from Mrs. Fresen, Mrs. Rothschild, Mrs. Koob, and Mrs. Hagist’s classes.
Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago, so code.org has pulled together an event called the Hour of Code to help change this. Last year, in one week, 15 million students tried computer science! This year, Code.org has a goal to make it even bigger, and our Henking School students can share in this amazing learning opportunity (with kids around the world, and across our district) by giving coding a try. http://hourofcode.com/us
Upon arrival time if it is raining or the "feels like/wind chill" temperature is below 20º the children come directly into building, no outside line-up. For recess, if it is raining or the "feels like/wind chill" temperature is below 10º children remain indoors. Please remember children must have snow pants, boots and gloves to play in the snow. Please contact the office if you have any questions or concerns. We follow weather.com for our forecast each day.
To get us exited for the Henking Book Fair, students participated in the Vote for Books campaign. It was a very heated race but our runaway winner was Pigeon Needs a Bath by Mo Willems with 69% of the votes, Nightsong by Ari Berk came in second with 28% of the votes and Bath in the Band by Brian Lies in third with 6% of the votes.
This HE_HO_Handbook_14-15 booklet has been prepared as a resource for parents in the Henking/Hoffman schools. It is our hope that the routines and procedures outlined in this handbook will be helpful throughout the year as questions arise. Linked is the Parent Letter for you to sign in English or Spanish.
