K & 1st Grade Fine Arts Week: March 23-27

Fine Arts Week celebrates the student's rich experiences in their art, music, drama, life skills, and Physical Education classes. We invite Kindergarten & 1st Grade families to join their child’s fine arts classes anytime throughout the week to participate in the learning process, authentic and individualized experiences that reflect their personal learning, talents, and interests. We look forward to you joining us for an up close and personal look at Henking's Fine Arts. 


Our CHAMPS target for the month of March is: I can keep Henking School beautiful by organizing and respecting the hallway. You can help at home by reminding your children to pick up trash and organize their clothing and shoes.

iWonder Lab: Henking's Makerspace

The Henking LRC is proud to announce our newest learning space, the iWonder Lab.  This is a place for students to foster a disposition to creatively solve problems by making and inventing.  Students will be introduced to the engineering design process that involves asking questions, imagining possible solutions, planning, creating and improving on a their plan.  The maker movement is all about teaching our kids to think for themselves, to think creatively, and to look for do-it-yourself solutions.  We would love your help in gathering the following items. Please send any donations to school with your child.
